    Hikes for beginners

    December - October

    Discover the fascinating world of hiking on Svalbard! Our half-day tours for beginners take you through picturesque landscapes, rolling hills and idyllic valleys. Experience untouched nature, breathe fresh Arctic air and enjoy the beauty of this unique island. Whether you're a first-time hiker or looking to expand your experience, our experienced guides will accompany you on these easy to moderate hikes with a maximum of 250 metres of altitude gain, ensuring an unforgettable adventure in the Arctic wilderness.

    Our most popular beginner tours include Endalen, Blomsterdalshøgda and Bjørndalen. We adapt our tours to your wishes and the prevailing weather conditions on a daily basis.

    Endalen

    A hike into Endalen first takes us out of town by car. At the edge of the large Advent valley we start our hike into the side valley Endalen. Passing old mining structures we walk into the valley with its mountains towering up on the sides. With a bit of luck, we may encounter reindeer or arctic foxes here.

    Blomsterdalshøgda

    Blomsterdalshøgda is a hill near the harbour and offers a wonderful view over the Adventfjord and the old cable cars that used to transport coal from the mines to the ships. Our walks start either from the harbour or from Longyearbyen town centre and are a little longer or shorter accordingly.

    Bjørndalen

    The Bear Valley - Bjørndalen in Norwegian - is a wide valley west of Longyearbyen and is known for its bird populations and flowering flora in summer. Here, too, we first drive by car along the coast to the beginning of the valley and then hike in. Besides the former mine, it is the meltwater river here that offers a very special experience.

    But more of a climber than a beginner? Then check out our tours for advanced or experienced Mountaineers.
