You will start your trip in Longyeardalen by hiking up the east side of Sarkofagen alongside your guide during this full day small group tour. The path will bring you alongside the glacier Larsbreen and through its moraine material. On top of Sarkofagen you'll have the opportunity to enjoy a cup of coffee or tea and some cookies. You'll also have enough time to enjoy and look upon the view over Longyearbyen, the glaciers, and Isfjorden.
In addition to landscape photography, the tour offers sights of small waterfalls and plenty of photographic opportunities for guests interested in geology.Â Then your trip continues southwards down to the glacier Longyearbreen, where you will put on some mini spikes and be introduced to the safety basics on glaciers and meltwater channels. On the way back down the valley you may find some Paleogene fossils in the loose moraine sediments of the glacier with fantastic detailing and preservation. During the descent on Longyearbreen you will also see the eastern slope of NordenskiÃ¶ldfjellet to your left-hand site, a mountain that reaches 1050 meters and contains some snow fields even throughout the summer.
Please note: This trip is going up on a glacier and also the way back from Sarkofagen takes us on a glacier. So we may change the route depending on Snow - Avalanche conditions.
