We will pick you up at the hotel you're staying at and drive to Nybyen at the top of Longyearbyen to the South. In Nybyen we prepare for the hike and start by crossing the meltwater river nearby. Then we start on the ascent of the eastern slope of Sarkofagen. After a slightly steep part we're rewarded by a relaxing walk along the slope of the moraine towards the glacier Larsbreen. After a while we get to a final slope which will take us to the top of the mountain.
When we arrive at the viewpoint we'll have a longer break followed by a warm lunch and hot drinks. After lunch we start descending via Longyearbreen which is a different route from the one we followed on the way up. We'll be walking partially on the glacier. On the way down we’ll get a spectacular view of the glacier and the valley below. Afterwards we need to cross the meltwater river one more time on our way back to the car. Once we're back in the car we'll drive you back again to your hotel.
The tour is a nice walk and not very difficult. The tempo will be adjusted after everyone's fitness and level of agility, but we do recommend that you're in average physical shape. Due to uneven and partly steep terrain the tour is not suitablle if you have limited mobility.
There are a lot of rocks in the beginning, so it's wise to wear hiking shoes preferably with ankle support, and it’s recommended to bring a wind proof jacket. Your base layer should be fleece or wool. You’re going to get tracking poles and crampons if needed from us.
During the winter we will give you snowshoes and a headlight.
Please inform us if you have any food allergies prior when booking this tour. There's a maximum limit of 8 participants, and we need a minimum of 3 fully paying participants in order to be able to do the tour. Larger groups are possible upon request.
We do not recommend this tour for very young children, and advise that the child must be at least 8 years old to participate.
Please bring a small backpack for your own utilities such as extra clothes, drinking water, snacks and a camera.
