    Hikes for advanced hikers

    December - October

    Discover the breathtaking peaks, wild valleys and unspoilt landscapes of this fascinating island. Our advanced tours offer you the opportunity to hone your hiking techniques and prove yourself in one of the most rugged and beautiful environments in the world. Let our experienced guides accompany you and experience unforgettable hikes full of challenges and successes on Svalbard.

    Our tours can be either day or half-day tours and take us to Sarkofagen, Platå or Fuglefjella, for example. We adapt our tours to your wishes and the prevailing weather conditions on a daily basis.

    Platåfjellet

    A beautiful tour with the best view over the Isfjorden - the largest fjord of Svalbard.

    Join us on a hiking tour full of contrasts up the 450 metre high plateau mountain. Up here you can quickly feel very far away from everything else and enjoy the view over the whole Isfjord, the Advent valley and the highest mountain in the vicinity of Longyearbyen.

    Fuglefjella

    This is the home of the reindeer, arctic fox and crabeater. Passing Hotelneset and Vestpynten, we drive by car to Bear Valley, which is about 6 kilometres west of Longyearbyen. From there we start our hike by crossing the meltwater river before climbing up to the high plateau of the bird rock - the Fuglefjella.

    Most of the time we are accompanied here by flocks of crab divers - a special Arctic bird species. Once on the plateau and at the edge of the rock, a fantastic view over the whole Isfjord awaits us.

    Sarkofagen

    Directly above Longyearbyen, between two glaciers, lies our local mountain Sarkofagen - which owes its name to its characteristic appearance. Our hike starts in Nybyen outside the town and leads us over the moraine of the Lars or Longyear glacier up to the 514 metre high mountain. From here we have a breathtaking view of the valley where Longyearbyen is located, as well as the peaks on the other side of Adventdalen.

    This hike also takes us past prehistoric plant fossils in the summer and can therefore be perfectly combined with our Fossil Tour.
