About

Join us for an exciting historical hike from the days of coal mining to The Global Seed Vault on Svalbard. On this adventure, we'll start with hiking to the summit of Blomsterdalshøgda at 320 meters above sea level. We're rewarded with a great view of the local area and Adventfjorden. Mine 3 can be seen from the summit, and the remains of the coal mining period. The days of coal mining are over at Mine 3, and today the entrance to The Global Seed Vault is in the mountain side. We'll pass by this exciting place on our way down from the mountain hike. 

Recommended to bring a small backpack with all extra equipment like cold drink, warm jacket, camera. Remember comfortable and warm hiking shoes.

Included transport to/from accommodation, snowshoe if needed, hot drink, biscuits and guide with neccesary security equipment.
