If you want a shorther walk, the Plateu mountain are a great alternative. The trip starts next to the cable station in Longyearbyen where the climb up to Platåfjellet begins. The trip up is a bit hard, but it is worth the struggle. At the top the view over Longyearbyen and the area around is great. Here you can enjoy your coffee while enjoying your view. The tour lasts approx. 3-4 hours and is suitable for those with normal physical condition. We reccommend to bring a small backpack with extra clothes and something cold to drink. Remember good mountain shoes.
