This is the trip for those who wish to take a different hiking trip in the breath-taking nature in Spitsbergen. Join our experienced guide on a daytrip on the mountains around Longyearbyen
Join our experienced guide on a daytrip on the mountains around Longyearbyen. We start our trip by the old cableway station, hiking upwards until we reach the top of Plateu Mountain. Here we have a fantastic view over the fjord and Longyearbyen. Wildlife like ptarmigan or other bird species are often found here, making it likely to see the Arctic Fox as well. After a break we follow the range southwards, telling stories and showing the nature. This is the spot where there was a polarbear attack in 1995. Following the range further we reach the valley which we follow to get back to Longyearbyen. We reach down by Longyear glacier and walk on the road the last bit back to your hotel. The trip gives you a view over Longyearbyen and surroundings, where you can sit down and enjoy the silence. Welcome to a active day!
