Experience spring in the Arctic with an advanced off-the-beaten-track hike to see beautiful clear lakes, stunning fjords and steep rugged mountains.
Our journey starts when we pick you up from your hotel and take a scenic drive (approx. 30 minutes to 1 hour) to find the best mountain on Kvaløya (Whale Island) for an adventurous hike. Our certified guide will provide a detailed briefing of the hike before starting.
Breathe in the refreshing spring breezes and enjoy the sun that bathes the mountains and fjords in warm light after a long winter.
Take your time and enjoy every step before reaching the impressive views from the mountain top. During breaks on the way up we will provide you with energy filled snacks. As we are enjoying time out in nature we may see some local Arctic wildlife such as reindeers, eagles or hares!
After accomplishing our mission of making Arctic memories, we will drive you safely back to your hotel.
This hike is rated as advanced will a minimum elevation gain of 400 vertical meters.
*** Arctic weather can be unpredictable therefore we may need a longer drive to find a good spot for the hike ***
