Reach Trollsteinen at 850 masl and explore the ice cave
with Svalbard Wildlife Expeditions
Join us on a hike to the summit of mountain Trollsteinen with a visit in the ice cave! This is the adventure for those of you who want more – you’ll get two great experiences in one!
Trollsteinen is a mountain at 850 meters above sea level. It’s a characteristic summit with a big troll-like stone on top and a beautiful ridge to walk on. Our hike starts in an exciting moraine landscape shaped by the Lars glacier, next to the mountain Sarkofagen. We’ll cross the glacier with spikes, before we explore the magical world inside the ice cave. When we’re done exploring the ice cave, we continue to the foot of the mountain, before we start making our way to the top. On clear days with light, you get a spectacular view of Isfjorden and further south on Svalbard.
This is a great adventure where you spend the whole day outdoors exploring a great, natural landscape.
