Longyearbyen, August 20-25, 2013

Some days in and around Lon­gye­ar­by­en can be much more inte­res­t­ing than some may think. Espe­ci­al­ly if the time is well spent with some good hikes in the val­leys and up the moun­ta­ins in the vici­ni­ty of the sett­le­ment. Tun­dra, rivers, gla­ciers, gre­at views from moun­tain tops, flo­ra in late-sum­mer colou­ra­ti­on, reinde­er, birds … what else might one want?

And all of this, of cour­se, in gre­at late-sum­mer light! Well, ok, we did not have gre­at late-sum­mer wea­ther all the time. But we did have our nice days.

By the way, if you want to see the Dwarf birch, Spitsbergen’s rarest tree: You can find it in End­a­len, on the west side of the val­ley, a few hundred met­res only from the road up the val­ley.
