This spectacular hike takes you from Longyearbyen across the glacier to a magnificent look out point on the popular Troll Stone-mountain.
Get ready to cross the ice and conquer the steep slope before reaching your goal - panoramic views from 849 metres above sea level! If you follow the Longyear Valley up to Nybyen, you will suddenly find yourself standing in a moraine landscape created by the force of the Lars Glacier. This combined mountain hike and glacier crossing starts at the highest part of Longyearbyen and takes you over the Lars Glacier before ending at the distinctive Trollsteinen. Early in the season during we might use snowshoes during parts of the hike. The glacier is solid and safe, so we won’t need to be roped together, but can instead enjoy the views and flatter ground. The last section of the climb heads up along mountain ridge. Near the top we will find a sheltered place to enjoy a well-deserved lunch while enjoying in the spectacular views. The landscape is intoxicatingly beautiful, and the panorama from the top is without a doubt worth the strenuous hike!
The terrain is both rugged and steep, and is relatively demanding. You should be in reasonably good physical condition to participate, and the tour is recommended for experienced hikers. Trekking boots are a must and gaiters are highly recommended due to snow and slush on the glacier. The price includes transport from/to your place of accommodation, sandwich/baguette and hot drink.
