Overview
Details

Blomsterdalshøgda, just west of Longyearbyen, stands at 321 metres above sea level, and overlooks Adventfjorden. In summer, it's slopes are covered with many of Svalbard's plants and flowers, and in winter, it is transformed into a world of rocks, snow, and ice. On the way back we will stop by the Global Seed Vault. It's not possible to get inside.

After a short drive out of Longyearbyen, we will hike to the summit of Blomsterdalshøgda. Once atop the peak, and weather permitting, we will be afforded incredible views of Longyearbyen and the incredible natural landscapes in the area. Be sure to remember your camera!

After descending from the summit, you will have the opportunity to pass by the Global Seed Vault, one of the most unique places on Svalbard. It is not possible for visitors to get inside. Carved deep into the permafrost, the Seed Vault preserves an incredible array of the world's species of plants. Your knowledgeable guide will share some insight about the Global Seed Vault and Svalbard's important place in the world of science and conservation.

The ascent and descent is a reasonable gradient. No previous experience needed. The tour lasts about 4 hours. We serve something warm to drink and biscuits on the trip.

We recommend bringing something to drink, a small backpack, warm clothing and good hiking boots. You can bring your own lunch if you want.
