Practical information

Newtontoppen is quite remote on Spitsbergen, Svalbard We recommend that your flight schedule has some margins in case the weather will be challenging.

The map shows us the route to get to Atomfjella and Newtontoppen. The distance is 180 km each way. The last part makes it a little challenging, because then we're out of the Travelling Resctriction Area 10, where tourists aren't allowed to drive themself, only transported by locals.

We'll create a camp when we arrive the foot of Newtontoppen. Considered the weather conditions, we might change location for camp. For us who travel in the moutains, we know that the weather might change quickly, and we need to adapt to that.

Backyard Svalbard provides tents and common camping equipment. Sleeping bag and matress is available to rent, as well as skiing and avalanche equipment.
