Glacier hike with ice cave visit – Snowfox Travel


Join us for a hike over the glacier, uphill towards the ice cave on Larsbreen!

Join our hiking trip towards the glacier and visit a stunning ice cave with us!

We start our trip from Longyearbyen, where we will pick you up from your accommodation. Our hike will start uphill towards the ice cave on Larsbreen. After a good hike, that demands some physical condition, we will reach the ice cave where we will go inside. We descend into the cave with our helmets and headlamps on and find our way through the different layers of ice. These meltwater channels can date back for thousands of years! Inside we take time to observe and experience this true Arctic nature phenomenon. During our warm drinks and snacks, we enjoy the silence and the shelter of the ice cave.

After our visit we can enjoy a magnificent view over Longyearbyen and if we are lucky, we might even see the northern lights dancing in the sky. There will be plenty of time to take in and capture all the beauty this frozen world has to offer.

Our professional and dedicated guide, hot drinks, warm food (lunch/dinner)and sweets, rescue insurance, emergency and safety equipment, transfer to and from your accommodation.
