whole day hike at Isfjord Radio

Join your Isfjord Radio guide on one of our favourite tracks along the old radio poles of the station given three optional route and activity alternatives. The hike will be approximately 10-16 km long depending on route.



The beautiful Griegfjellet is majestically located between the sea and Linnaeus Lake. We either make the trip along the coastline and towards Båtodden, or we go up towards Linnévannet. On both trips we are close to the Arctic flora and fauna, with Griegfjellet as a significant orientation point.

At Båtodden, the walruses thrive, and if we are lucky, we get the opportunity to study these fascinating animals both on land and in the sea. It is a golden rule that we should never disturb wildlife on Svalbard, but tons of walruses are easy to observe – even at a safe distance. Near Båtodden is a small, old hunting lodge. Here we eat lunch, and learn more about the hard hunting life in the north. On the way to and from Båtodden we see whale bones and driftwood that the sea has brought with it, and please pay attention where you put your feet. The tundra hides treasures such as tiny flowers and well-hidden bird nests.

The trip to Linnévannet takes us a little further up and into the mountains. Here the Svalbard grouse and the polar fox thrive, and the surrounding mountains embrace you in a magical world. When we reach the Congress, we are in a suitable place for fossil hunting in the moraine landscape, and it is an excellent place for lunch.

The weather and the participants’ physical shape are decisive for the choice of route. Our guides are very experienced in the Arctic wilderness, and will always consider the best route option. No matter where the trip goes, a full day of hiking is good for your body and mind. You are guaranteed to be left with new knowledge and impressions.
