Svalbard SVALBARD

Lindholmhøgda Hiking - Poli Arctici

  • +47 48280367
  •  /  km From You
Overview

The hike starts from the dog yard just outside of Longyearbyen. From there, we ascend the hill and follow the ridge for ~1.5 hours to an elevation of 457 meters.

This short hike starts from the dog kennel just outside of Longyearbyen. From there, we ascend the hill and follow the ridge for ~1.5 hours to an elevation of 457 meters above sea level. At the edge of the plateau, we are met with a view of Advent Valley and the fjord, giving you a good opportunity to experience the peacefulness of the Arctic. This rich glacial valley is characteristic of Svalbard and provides us with opportunities to learn about the diverse tundra ecosystem.

Below us, you can see a small reservoir which supplies drinking water to Longyearbyen and the remnants of the cable car system that was used in the past to transport coal and workers from the mines to the port.

After spending time on top of the plateau, we can either descend following the same route we came up or through the narrow Gruvedalen Valley, which brings us back to the starting point.

While this short excursion is not our most demanding hike, it’s not for beginners either. You’ll need sturdy hiking shoes and reasonable fitness for this excursion.

We also have a several-day trekking tours. One of them is this 5-day hike along Isfjorden: https://www.poliarctici.com/activities/isfjord-trekking

Age limits: Minimum 6 years, maximum 75 years
Minimum number of participants: 4 persons
