Sarkofagen

360°-Panoramas

The moun­tain ridge Sar­ko­fa­gen is 500 metres high and situa­ted a few kilo­me­tres south of Lon­gye­ar­by­en in the upper Lon­gye­arda­len, bet­ween the gla­ciers Lon­gyear­breen and Lars­breen. Sar­ko­fa­gen is qui­te pro­mi­n­ent­ly seen also from down­town Lon­gye­ar­by­en, and the view from the­re easi­ly exp­lains the name, which trans­la­tes as “the cof­fin”: the moun­tain has a simi­lar shape.

Des­pi­te the rather grim name, Sar­ko­fa­gen is a very popu­lar desti­na­ti­on for a hiking or ski­ing outing from Lon­gye­ar­by­en, and the 360 degree pan­ora­mas below will show why.

The moun­tain ridge Sar­ko­fa­gen divi­des the val­ley Lon­gye­arda­len south of Lon­gye­ar­by­en in 2 bran­ches, which are fil­led by the gla­ciers Lon­gyear­breen and Lars­breen, respec­tively. From Sar­ko­fa­gen, you have a gre­at pan­ora­ma view over Lon­gye­ar­by­en and its sur­roun­dings.
