Our first choice of route is hiking to Linné Lake where our canoes lie ready to take you out onto this beautiful part of Nordenskiøld Land. We will paddle or walk along the shoreline surrounded by stunning geological grounds. Around the lake you can often spot the Svalbard Rock Ptarmigan and the Arctic Fox in its summer coat. If we reach the area of Kongressen, we are in a nice place to search for fossils and stop for lunch. Mountains surround you and it feels like you are in a magical world. A more stunning setting for a picnic is hard to come by!
Another choice of route is to follow the coast south towards Båtodden. We will walk by beautiful Greig mountain and looking out on the ocean your view is towards Greenland. We will stop by big whale bones and a small trappers hut for lunch before we reach a beach where there potentially is a walrus colony. They have returned to the Nordenskiold Coast a few summers, and we do hope they will return next year as well.
The different seasons with its flora and fauna define our trip underway, and the length of the canoe trip is varied due to the weather and experience of the participants.
