Summer in the Arctic is short, hectic and rich with wildlife. It is not uncommon to see both deer and foxes. In the summer months from May to almost the end of August, there is daylight around the clock.
We start the tour from Longyearbyen and drive towards Advent Valley. After about 3 kilometers, we arrive at the old airport located in the valley. From here, we continue into beautiful Endalen. The guide will take us up the mountain where the only running coal mine in Longyearbyen is located, Mine number 7. On top of the mountain we find the Kjell Henriksen Observatory for Northern Light research. We stop here to enjoy the fantastic view of Advent Valley and the fjord. When descending, we visit Basecamp trapper’s station with 100 Alaskan huskies in Bolterdalen. Coffee is served and perhaps we may get to meet the dogs before returning to town.
