Hike with a view! This trip offers different experiences from what you can get close to Longyearbyen. We use open polarcircel boats to take us across the Adventfjord to Revneset, from where we’ll start our hike.

Hike from sea to summit
The tour takes us up through the Louise Valley towards Caroline Valley. Here we see quite lush vegetation for Svalbard, providing good feed for our endemic reindeer. We will also see many remnants from the earliest mining efforts in Advent City. At the end of the valley we will head up onto the Forkastnings Mountain, where we can enjoy the incredible views over the whole Isfjord. The glaciers are placed like pearls on a string, from the Nordenskiöld glacier in the north, to the western bays ending with Trygghamna.

This is a reasonably demanding hike which covers about 10 kilometres with about 400 metres of elevation. On Forkastnings Mountain we will traverse a lofty shoulder, but the terrain is generally easy. The guide will bring a light lunch and warm drinks.

Included
- Transfer to and from accommodation in Longyearbyen.
- Guide with all necessary safety equipment
- Boat transfer to and from Revneset
- Floatation suit for boat trip
- Simple expedition lunch, warm drinks and biscuits
- Practical information

Minimum age of participation: 14

This tour is subject to weather conditions, particularly in regards to wind and waves on the boat trip. The transfer will be in an open boat, and the participants may experience seaspray and bumpy crossings. The tour is therefore not suitable for pregnant women or people with back issues. Participants must have good, sturdy hiking boots, wind and waterproof outer clothing, warm hat and mittens. Participants may wish to take extra clothing and snacks/chocolate in a backpack.

Language
Safety is our highest priority, and the guide needs to be able to give directions you understand. To participate on one of our excursions, it is required that you speak and understand English or one of the Scandinavian languages.
