About the trip

Join us at a hike across the Breinosa mountain, with a breathtaking view over Adventdalen and Isfjorden!

We will start the tour with getting a lift by car up to the top of the mine 7 mountain, about 400 metres over sea level. From there, we will hike across the Foxfonna glacier and down the mountainside, to the Fox valley. Here we will enjoy lunch in an old trapping station.

After a light lunch and some hot drinks & bisquits, we are ready to continue our hike through beautiful Adventdalen. You will end the hike at the Green Dog kennel, where you will say bye to your new four-legged friend, before the guide will drive you back to Longyearbyen.

Now you’ve seen Adventvalley and the Ice fjord from a bird’s perspective!

The hike is around 11 kilometres in total. The guide will start picking up in Longyearbyen at 10 am. You’ll be return in town around 16:30.

The hike is for people who are used to hike off road. The terrain is uneven and we will cross several small streams. We recommend hiking boots, wind and water proof clothing, hat and mittens.
