Important information meeting with packing and preparation of the trip at our warehouse in Longyearbyen.
We enjoy this spectacular bay in all its splendour. Here we see remains of the plaster mine that goes into the Skansen mountain and remains behind old fishing stations opposite the bay. This bay is well protected from wind and weather, and a pleasant place to start the hike.
Day 2 and 3
These two days we are heading towards the Pyramiden. This is a spectacular area of distinctive nature and very little tourism, and maybe we get a glimpse of Jotunfonna. The chances of seeing other people these two days are very small. We walk in easy terrain with some vegetation occasionally. There are canyon-like areas with beautiful lagoons, deep gorges and beautiful rock and clay formations. Along the way, we can see different flowers such as Saxifraga and Svalbardvalmuen, yes, maybe we observe some wildlife as well? It is not uncommon to hit several bird species, reindeer, and Polar fox. We take good breaks along the way and enjoy the trip, the tranquillity, and the beautiful scenery. We find suitable places to make the camp and have the polar bear guard at night.
Last day and visit in the Russian abandoned mining town of Pyramiden. At lunchtime we return by boat back to Longyearbyen. Upon arrival Longyearbyen, you will be transported by car from the dock to the hotel.
