At the end of the Longyear valley, there are two glaciers, Lars Breen and Longyear Breen. Longyear Breen have over thousands of years eroded the mountains and pushed the rocks in to a huge moraine in front of the glacier. It is in these rocks we find 40 to 60 million year old plant and animal fossils.
Over four fantastic days we will ski over the glaciers to the east coast of Spitsbergen, covering approximately 50km.
4 days skiing
This combined trekking and glacier trip starts in Nybyen. We walk up to the foot of the glacier and start the glacier trekking crossing the Lars glacier. We head towards Trollsteinen (Troll Mountain). A light meal is served.

The Polar Night is a particularly atmospheric time of year, and dog sledding under starry skies, dancing aurora or glittering moonlight is an experience not to be missed.
Variable weather, northern lights, crystal-clear skies full of stars, moonlight or sunshine both day and night; these are variations only the Arctic can give. The dogs will be your engine the next couple of hours and they will bring you on an adventure you maybe never have experience earlier. The nature is stunning and the landscape is covered by a white layer of snow.
Drive your own team of dogs on the road in Adventdalen, where you may see more of the Arctic fauna, like reindeer or birds. We visit the Trappers Station for a hot drink after the trip!
