About the trip

Join us on a hike across the Breinosa mountain, with breath-taking views of over Adventdalen and Isfjorden!

 We’ll start by driving up to Mine 7 at approx. 400m above sea level. From there we continue our tour across the base of Foxfonna glacier (named after the Arctic Fox) and on towards Foxdalen. We descend towards the entrance of Foxdalen where we will stop for lunch at the Trapper’s Cabin.

After a light meal and some warm drinks we’ll head down the beautiful Adventdalen to finish at the Green Dog kennel and thereafter the guide will return you to Longyearbyen.

So come and see Advendalen and the surrounding mountains from a bird’s eye view!

The trip is a total of roughly 11 km and takes about 6 hours (10 – approx. 16:30).

There are no roads or tracks over the mountain, so waterproof hiking boots, warm clothes and clothes for wind and rain protection are a must. Participants should be in good health and be able to walk in rugged terrain and cross streams. The summer at Svalbard is often 5 – 10 degrees Celsius.
