What to expect

You will start our trip in Longyeardalen by hiking up the east side of Sarkofagen. The path will bring you along the Larsbreen glacier. On top of Sarkofagen you can enjoy a cup of tea or coffee and some cookies before taking some incredible pictures of the view over Longyearbyen, the glaciers, and Isfjorden. Then your trip continues southwards down to the glacier Longyearbreen where you put on some mini spikes and learn the basic safety instructions for your crossing of the glaciers and meltwater channels. During your descent on Longyearbreen you will have the eastern slope of Nordenskiöldfjellet to your left-hand side, a mountain that reaches 1050m meters and bears some snowfields even throughout the summer. You will also see some small waterfalls and there will be plenty of photographic opportunities for guests interested in geology. On the way back down the valley, you might find some Paleogene fossils in the loose moraine sediments of the glacier.
