Overview
Details

At the highest point of a ridge there is a huge rock tower. This can be seen from town, and for many locals in Longyearbyen, this mountain peak is defined as a classic mountain hike - either by foot or by skis. This place truly earns its name - Trollsteinen (The Troll Rock).

This can be seen from town, and for many locals in Longyearbyen, this mountain peak is defined as a classic mountain hike - either by foot or by skis. This place truly earns its name - Trollsteinen (The Troll Rock). During this trip, we'll take our time to explore an interesting moraine and glacier landscape before we start our ascend to the summit of the mountain. We'll eat our lunch during the day and enjoy being in the outdoors. We recommend bringing a backpack with warm clothes and something to drink.



If there's snow in the area, we'll use snow shoes. In the wintertime, it's possible to do the trip by ski touring. This has to be booked in advance.
