4 hours dogsledding in Bolterdalen! Surrounded by mountains, we will follow the riverbed in Bolterdalen and carry on in to the moraine hills, where going up and down will add some fun and excitement to the tour. In Bolterdalen we often see reindeer and grouse.

Early in the season the sea ice may still lie thick on the fjord, preventing og us from reaching the glacier itself. However, in exchange for this we may be lucky as to see seals sunbathing on the ice under the spring sun which refuses to set.
By the ice we will serve supper from the barbecue.
Please note that due to ice conditions in Billefjorden the ships will not reach Pyramiden before end of May.

The Russian mining settlement Pyramiden was abandoned in 1998, leaving the buildings and infrastructure intact. We pass close by the bird cliffs at Diabas before we reach Tempelfjorden and the cathedral-like mountain, Tempelfjellet. We head towards the Nordenskiöldbreen and whilst you enjoy the view, a warm barbequed lunch is served. We investigate the once so well groomed settlement. We follow the north side of the fjord and can reflect over the tragic winter in Svenskhuset at Kapp Thordsen.

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.
