This hike takes you to a place far away from the town to the real silence of the Arctic. Expect a completely different place than on our other hikes!

After pickup we drive into Adventdalen, leaving the settlement behind us. We pass by a lot of interesting sites – the ice dam, old airport, mine 5, 6 and 7, the Eiscat radar station. Worth a stop to look at! The drive takes us to the end of the road next to Eiscat.
Equipped with solid snowshoes, we will set course up Breinosa to the glacier plateau on Foxfonna, where we will take a break to enjoy a hot lunch. From there, we will have a scenery that will make you understand the meaning of the word ice cap – just glacier wherever you look! If conditions allow, we can reach all the way to the peak Gilsonryggen (950 masl), with a breath-taking view over a big part of Nordenskiøld land.
We will return the same way down the glacier.
OBS! During summertime, we do not use snowshoes on the stones and on the glacier = ice. We hike in normal mountain terrain with stones and use crampons on ice if needed.
You need a backpack with extra warm jacket (down jacket f ex) and water for the hike. Be dressed for being outdoors the whole day, in potential wind and cold. Remember warm and solid hiking boots!
Transfer from accommodation, snowshoes (winter), poles, lunch and guide with safety equipment.
