Rather than going straight back down into Longyearbyen's valley, we descended onto the plateau above it. There were some reindeer milling about in the distance but they fled before we got anywhere near them. A cairn on the plateau stood as a memorial to a victim of a polar bear attack here twenty years earlier.
