If you follow the Longyear Valley up to Nybyen you will suddenly find yourself standing in a moraine landscape created by the force of thousands of tonnes of ice at the foot 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. 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. The landscape is intoxicatingly beautiful, and the panorama from the top is without a doubt worth the strenuous hike!
