Nordenskiöldfjellet - Hike to the summit 1050 m.a.s. and Randonnée back to town
Come and join us for a winter day-expedition to and up the challenging Nordenskiöld mountain.
Maybe we will reach the highest point if the weather and hiking condition allows it. We start the hike in Nybyen / Sverdrupbyen, and cross moraine landscapes and glacier systems until we do the last climb before we reach the top of Nordenskiöldfjellet at 1050 mas, or we start from Taubanesentralen close to our church and up Platåfjellet from where we can reach Nordenskiöldfjellet as well.
Along the way, we’ll have a lunch break with expedition lunch while listening to the silence and watching the beautiful and always surprising Svalbard nature. On the ridge and at the very top, the view is fantastic. Feel free to bring your own food as well if needed.
The trip is demanding +
We recommend you bring a backpack with your camera, extra sweater for breaks and the Randonnée back to town. Drinking water is smart to bring inside frost free thermos as well as Svalbard is an arctic desert destination.
Guide will go through the activity of today and check your equipment before take off.
Ski equipment rental is available in Longyearbyen; however we strongly recommend your own ski equipment to avoid time spent on rental and time to justify skis after the group is assembled.
