Sarkofagen – 04th September 2016

The weather continued to be fine, so we used the opportunity to make a nice tour near Longyearbyen. We started from the group’s acommodation in Nybyen and over the stony river bed of Longyearelva towards the moraine of Longyearbreen. At the glacier rim, we found a nice little ice cave, easily accessible, before we put the crampons on and ventured up onto the glacier. The mountain Sarkofagen has got one of the finest views on Longyeardalen and Longyearbyen!

Over Larsbreen and Gruvefjellet with further lovely views in warm September sun, we continued around Longyearbyen and then down the narrow, stony Vannledningsdalen back to zivilisation.
