The mountain ridge forms a horseshoe around Larsbreen. At the highest point there is a huge rock, characteristic and roughly 850 meters above sea level, this stone really lives up to its name Trollstein. Naughty stone as a Troll.
It is in the untouched nature you get the most magical Svalbard experience. In the fjords, the valleys and on the mountains you find sea birds nesting. You can experience the little auk, geese, guillemots, black guillemots, gulls, fulmars and maybe even the Svalbard Ptarmigan.
This hike starts up on Mine 7 mountain and is in the opposite area of our other hikes.
We will pass a fascinating moraine landscape featuring rich vegetation and small waterfalls. Once we have reached Longyearbreen, we will follow the ice and the melting water channels down to the glacial deposits.
Our summit to Trollsteinen is very popular!
We pick up our guests at the city’s hotels and get ready for today’s summit.
Trollsteinen, 850 masl, made the name of the mountain due to its shape and location at the top of the mountain.
Blomsterdalshøgda, just west of Longyearbyen, stands at 321 metres above sea level, and overlooks Adventfjorden.
Join us for a hike to the view point at Platåfjellet at 424 meters above sea level with a great view over Longyearbyen.
To climb its summit is a must. But it is tough, there is a good reason why this trip has the name “The Arctic Challenge”; The fjord must be crossed by kayak and then around 1000 altitude metres in an untouched terrain await to be climbed.
Join us for an exciting adventure, out of town, into the polar night to feel the darkness and silence in Svalbard. If we are lucky, and the night is clear, we can see nature’s own magical lights: The northern lights. From a distance, we will see lights from the only urban settlement in the Arctic.
