Trekking tour to the top of Pyramiden Mountain

First part of the itinerary is passing along the roads left from the mining development. Then the route continues along the hiking path. The terrain is getting steadily both rugged and steep, and relatively demanding. Last section of the climb which is a few meters right to the top requires special equipment provided by the guides. Whether you climb to the top or not, the tour  is truly an awesome endeavor with incomparable views over majestic Arctic harsh landscape all around… ghost mining settlement Pyramiden,  magnificent Billefjord and glaciers running to Lomonosov plato. Near the top we will find a sheltered place to enjoy a well-deserved lunch. Upon arrival you will be awarded a Certificate of Pyramiden Mount Winner.

Trekking tour to the top of Table Mountain

Table Mountain – the Russian name of the plateau Yggdrasilkampen located on south of Pyramiden settlement (Ygg – another name of the supreme God Odin in Norwegian mythology). This name got widespread in 70-th of the past century when climbing on the plateau was very popular among locals in Pyramiden. The itinerary to Table Mountain was some kind of initiation for newly arrived polar explorers. This trekking trip is relatively easy and short which makes it suitable for everyone. On the plateau you can admire amazing views of Billlefjorden, Bunsowland mountains across the fjord and, of course, settlement Pyramiden itself.

Trekking tour 'Pyramiden-Bertilbreen-Petunia'

This circular route is rather easy, however because of its long distance (22 km) we recommend it for experienced hikers. This is a sort of alternative way to Petunia bukta along small glacier Bertil. From the top of Bertil glacier through small glacier Ferdinand (Ferdinandbreen) the itinerary goes down to bukta, from where along the coast we go back to Pyramiden. When the weather is good it’s possible to climb from the glacier to 670-meter-height summit of the range Svenbrehøgda with amazing view to Petunia bukta, Bertil and Svenbreen glaciers. Among the sightseeing attractions of this itinerary – bottle house (in the beginning of the route) and “Spitsbergen Stonehenge”.
