Snowcat tour with a fantastic view

The goal for the tour is the excellent viewpoint, ‘Linken’ part of the way up the side of the mountain ‘Hiorthfjellet’ on the other side of Adventdalen. Our first stop will be at the polar bear sign at the edge of town, where the striking sign reminds us that we are visitors in the realm of the polar bear.

From here we cross the Adventdalen, heading towards Hiorthhamn. This was one of the first Norwegian mining towns on Svalbard, and in the early 1900s there were barracks, a blacksmith, stores, kitchens, a sawmill, hospital, housing, offices and a series of mine constructions to be found here. You will have to use a bit of fantasy to imagine the bustling outpost of days gone by. Just before we reach the old town, which is now a popular spot for local cabins, we will turn north, and the guide will navigate the snowcat up through Telegrafdalen.

Once we arrive at the amazing viewpoint, ‘Linken’, we will take a break and enjoy the fabulous views towards Longyearbyen while our guide serves hot drinks. You can look across to the Svalbard satellite station on Platåberget - the plateau mountain. This station is used by NASA amongst others, to download information from satellites in polar orbit, and it is the northernmost satellite station in the world. From Linken it sort of looks like a group of giants have left their golf balls behind, but is in any case it is an impressive sight.

Wilderness evening at Camp Barentz

Camp Barentz boasts an amazing location at the foot of the mountain, Breinosa, right below Mine 7. As we arrive at the cosy wooden cabins we will be met by the evening’s host. Good drinks and a delicious homemade reindeer bidos will be served, together with campfire coffee and dessert. After a delicious dinner, it is time to learn about the king of the Arctic, the polar bear. We will sit around the fire, while our host shares information and photographs of this incredible animal. This will be an exciting evening.
