This is a great hike which gives you a different view to those you can experience close to Longyearbyen. We will jump in a boat and cross the Adventfjord, arriving at Revneset after about 10 minutes.

Hike from sea to summit

The tour takes us up through the valley Louisedalen towards Carolinedalen. Here we see quite lush vegetation for Svalbard, providing good feed for our endemic reindeer. We will also see many remnants from the earliest mining efforts in Advent City. At the end of the valley we will head up onto Forkastningsfjellet, where we can enjoy the incredible views over the whole Isfjord. See the glaciers which lay like pearls on a string, from Nordenskiöldbreen in the north, to the western bays ending with Trygghamna.

This is a reasonably demanding hike which covers about 10 kilometres with about 400 metres of elevation. On Forkastningsfjellet we will traverse a lofty shoulder, but the terrain is generally easy. The guide will bring a light lunch and warm drinks along for the group.

Included

  • Transfer to and from accommodation in Longyearbyen.
  • Guide with all necessary safety equipment

  • Floatation suit for boat trip
