Frozen River: Nature hike to a historical mining settlement


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. If the weather permits it, we cross the frozen Advent river and head towards Hiorthamn. Hiorthhamn is an abandoned mining settlement located on the east side of Adventfjorden, across the fjord from Longyearbyen. This place served as a coal mining site from 1917 to 1921. This is one of the places on Svalbard with the highest amount of cultural heritage, and it’s an exciting place to visit where the raw nature of Svalbard meets the cultural impact of human activity in the Arctic. This is an easy hike which suits almost everyone. The landscape is flat, but you will still experience to walk on ice and snow on the Arctic tundra.
