Explore the pristine natural beauty of Norway during this exhilarating hiking tour to scenic Plateau Mountain that also visits an interesting museum.

Your tour begins with a brief drive to the Svalbard Museum, which in 2008 was designated as European Museum of the year. The exhibition presents fragments of Svalbard's 400-year history which includes its 17th century whaling history, expeditions, winter trapping techniques, the war on Svalbard, flora, fauna, geology and the area's mining history.

From the museum, your coach will transfer you to the foot of Longyearbyen Mountain where you will commence your hike. Your guided hike starts by trekking up a very steep hill to access Plateau Mountain. Upon reaching the top of the mountain, you will have an opportunity to take in spectacular views and photo opportunities over Longyearbyen and Isfjord. Along the way, refreshments will be served.

Your total hike up and back is approximately 3.5 hours and once you have returned to the base of the mountain, you will continue on back to town and the pier where your tour concludes.
