Ski touring around Longyearbyen - Backyard Svalbard

  • Vei 217, Spitsbergen
  • +47 98802283
  •  /  km From You

Join us in the mountains around Longyearbyen. In our backyard there's a plenty to discover! We find your experience level and design the tour for you.

In the backyard of Longyearbyen we find mountains like Trollsteinen, Lars Hierta-fjellet, Nordenskiöldfjellet and Hiorthfjellet. There are 7-8 more mountains that are accessible without using snowmobile for transportation. These trips have different levels of difficulty and different durations. Our philosophy is that the destination is not the goal of the trip, but that the trip itself is the goal. Therefore, we’ll choose the main destination in cooperation with the group’s expectations and experiences.

The guide meets you 8.30 AM at the hotel. There you will get a briefing about the weather, snow conditions and the plan of the day. The following is an unforgettable experience in the backyard of Longyearbyen. The estimated time frame of the trip is 5 to 7 hours.

On this trip you don’t need to be a confident skier, but you need to have normal physical abilities. After all, we are going to use our bodies for movement.

We recommend to dress with woolen liners close to the body, 1-2 intermediate layers and finally a lightweight jacket (i.e. Gore-tex). In your backpack you carry a down jacket and your avalanche equipment.

The trip includes:
- Transportation to and from the hotel
- Lunch
- A certified Svalbard guide with safety equipment.
- SAR- insurance

It is possible to rent skis and avalanche equipment at Sportscenteret. Prices are NOK 800 for a ski package, and NOK 500 for avalanche equipment.

We highly recommend all guests to have their own travel insurance.

Minimum 2 participants, maximum 6.
