Seed to Summit: From the days of coal mining to the Global Seed Vault

Blomsterdalshøgda, just west of Longyearbyen, stands at 321 metres above sea level, and

overlooks Adventfjorden. In summer, its slopes are covered with many of Svalbard’s plants and

flowers, and in winter, it is transformed into a world of rock, snow, and ice. After a short drive

out of Longyearbyen, we will hike to the summit. Once atop the peak, and weather permitting,

we will be afforded incredible views of Longyearbyen and the incredible natural landscapes in

the area. Be sure to remember your camera!

science and conservation.
