Dickson Land 07/2007

Situa­ted on the nor­t­hern side of Isfjord, Bil­lefjord and Dick­son Land are still com­pa­ra­tively easy acces­si­ble, varied and per­fect are­as for deman­ding hiking tours of dif­fe­rent dura­ti­on. In the sum­mer, you can get from Lon­gye­ar­by­en to Pyra­mi­den almost every day by boat. From Pyra­mi­den, you can take off for hours, days or weeks in the most delightful and con­trast-rich arc­tic land­scape. Depen­ding on your rou­te, the ter­rain can be quite deman­ding, invol­ving crossing rivers, gla­ciers and ter­rain as steep as you can take it. Next to the usu­al hiking equip­ment, you need a rif­le, alarm fence for your tent and other emer­gen­cy gear, so the­re is a lot to car­ry. But the expe­ri­ence is extre­me­ly rewar­ding – have a look at some pho­tos of a hiking tour in that area in the gal­le­ries below!
