Overview
Details

Take a different hiking trip, on the northern side of the Adventfjord. We cross the Adventfjord by boat and disembark at Revneset. This transfer takes approximately 10 minutes. We then head into Louisdalen towards Carolinedalen. At the top of the valley we turn and make our way up onto Forkastningsfjellet. From here we can enjoy magnificent panoramic views over the Isfjord, stretching from the Nordenskiöld Glacier in Billefjorden to Trygghamna near the west coast.

This is a moderately difficult hike over approximately 10 kilometres, with  a climb of about 400m in altitude. The terrain is fairly easy, although the ridge along Forkastningsfjell is quite narrow. Guiden will bring a light lunch and warm drinks which you can enjoy during the trip.

This trip is subject to weather conditions, especially in regards to high wind or large waves during the boat transfers.

Included: Pick up from accommodation, guide with necessary safety equipment, boat transfer to and from Revneset, floatation suit, lunch as discrived, warm drinks and a bottle of water.

Equipment: Participtants must have sturdy hiking boots, wind and waterproof outerwear, headwear and mittens, extra clothing in a backpack and extra light meal/snack/chocolate if desired.
