Randonnée from Trollsteinen
Arranged by Svalbard Wildlife Expedition
The mountain ridge forms a horseshoe around Larsbreen.
At the highest point there is a huge rock, characteristic and roughly 850 meters above sea level, this stone really lives up to its name Trollstein. Naughty stone as a Troll.
This area is a great viewpoint, even in the dark.
Every Wednesday and Saturday when conditions are acceptable, Guide will pick up all the skiing guests at the respective hotels and have an information meeting regarding the trip and equipment.
After we ascended the mountain Trollsteinen, we take a break and enjoy nature’s tranquillity with warm expedition lunch before heading down to Longyearbyen.
When we are lucky, there is powder snow – but we can expect hard-packed and partly icy snow as well. In the dark, we use headlamps.
We recommend bringing an extra sweater and cold drink. It is often cold when we take the lunch break. Remember good hiking/skiing shoes for the trip.
