We start off with a boat trip across the Adventfjord, a 10-minute trip to Reveneset, before we head into an area boasting many of Svalbard’s highlights. Lush grasses and mosses provide fodder for the Svalbard reindeer, in Advent City you can see historical remains from early mining and throughout the tour you can feel the aura of the early Arctic hunters.
We take you up to Louisdalen towards Carolinedalen. When we reach the top of the valley, we will turn and make our way up onto Forkastningsfjellet, where you can enjoy magnificent panoramic views of the entire Isfjord. Sparkling glaciers lie in a row, stretching from Nordenskiöld Glacier in the north to Trygghamna in the west.
This is a moderately difficult hike of approximately 10 kilometres, with a climb of about 400m in altitude. The terrain is fairly easy, although the ridge along Forkastningsfjellet is quite narrow.
