Climbing to the top of Mount Newtontoppen is an experience that few people on earth are ever given the opportunity to enjoy.
This is one of those experiences that will stay with you for the rest of your life. If the weather conditions are right you may even be able to enjoy lunch on the summit, looking north across what seems like all of Spitsbergen's true Arctic wilderness.
