More Longyearbyen mountain

We climbed up above the cloud layer and in the end even found some sunshine (even though it was snowing at the same time)

At the top we could see right across the glacier and see many of the mountains of Spitzbergen. Because people have not been here for very long not all of the peeks have names.

The terrain is very rugged and difficult at times - we walked next to the glacier and right up to the top.

They way up was quite hard, it took 3 and half hours - on the way back it was only 2 and half.

We made it down quite fast and saw lots of wild life on the way - but no Polar Bears.
