Sarkofargen – on foot in the realm of the glaciers

We’re picking you up from the hotel and driving to Nybyen. At Nybyen we prepare for the hike and start with crossing the meltwater river. Then we start ascending on the eastern slope of Sarkofagen. After a slightly steep part we are rewarded by relaxing walk along the slop on the moraine towards Larsbreen (glacier). After a while we’re getting to a final slope which will take us to the top of the mountain. We’re arriving to the viewpoint and having a longer break followed by warm lunch and hot drinks. After lunch we start descending via Longyearbreen. On the way down we’re having a spectacular view on the glacier and then on Longyear valley. We’re arriving back to Nybyen and getting back to your hotel. You must wear hiking shoes preferably with ankle support and it’s recommended to have a wind proof jacket. The first layer should be fleece or wool. You’re going to get tracking poles and crampons if needed from us. During the winter we will give you snowshoes and headlights. Please inform us if you have any food allergies or you are on diet before the tour. Maximum 8 guests Minimum 2 fully paying guests
