Nordenskiöldfjellet - Hike to the summit 1050 M.a.s.

Come and join us for a hike up the challenging Nordenskiöld mountain.

Maybe, we will reach the highest point if the weather and hiking conditions allow it. We start the trip in Nybyen / Sverdrupbyen, and cross moraine landscapes with interesting historical fossils and glacier systems until we start the last climb before we reach the top of Nordenskiöldfjellet at 1050 mas.

When we get the most active snow melting period during high summer, we use an alternative route, perhaps via Platåfjellet and the magic Polygon field. This is a collective term for surface structures in loose material with geometric patterns. The structures are formed by freezing and thawing the upper layers of the permafrost..

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.

On the way back, we pick up rubbish that shows up on our way. SWE focuses on sustainability and nature conservation.

The trip is medium to demanding +.

We recommend you bring a backpack with your camera, extra sweater for breaks and return hike, and cold drink as Svalbard is an arctic desert destination.

As our groups are international, guiding takes place in English.
