Nordenskiöld Land – wilderness adventure: 4 days hiking and overnight in tent - Svalbard Wildlife Expeditions

Behind Longyearbyen lies Nordenskiold Land; a vast expanse of countless glacial valleys and imposing barren mountains We spend 4 days in this great outdoors. With our tents, we will set out on a hike along coastlines and over mountain plateaus

Behind the small town of Longyearbyen lies Nordenskiold Land; a vast expanse of countless glacial valleys, flanked by imposing, barren mountains.

The short Arctic summer offers a glimpse into the subtle riches of Svalbard’s tundra - reindeer often graze in the sparse yet diverse vegetation, while large bird colonies in craggy outcrops overlook the fjords.
With each passing day, the midnight sun surfs ever closer to the horizon, casting a warm hue over the land.

We will spend 4 days in this great outdoors. With our tents, we will set out on a through-hike winding its way through valleys, along coastlines and over mountain plateaus, making camp in a different place each night. Along the way, we can encounter some wildlife, as well as come across old cultural remains from Svalbard’s past.

The duration of this tour may vary depending on weather and conditions as well as the dynamic of the group.
If need be, we will have shorter or longer days, and find room for hiking into alternative areas.

Requires minimum 4 participants over the age of 18 years.
