Keep your senses attuned to the Arctic wonders that await, as our voyage offers ample opportunities to witness the splendor of wildlife, including whales, seals, and a myriad of birds at the awe-inspiring bird cliff of Diabas. With luck on our side, a polar bear might grace us with its presence on the ice or near the glacier. If the ice conditions allow it, this cruise will also showcase majestic views of the Nordenskiöld glacier.
Our knowledgeable guide aboard the ship will delight you with tales of Longyearbyen's rich history, the icy expanses of glaciers, and the fascinating Arctic wildlife. Perhaps, you'll even be treated to a captivating "polar tall tale" or two.
When Pyramiden is reachable (usually around the end of May/beginning of June), a Russian guide eagerly awaits to lead us through the enigmatic corridors of this Arctic ghost town.
A warm "Welcome to Russia!" sets the tone for the guided tour, offering insights into the abandoned buildings that whisper stories of days gone by. Venture inside some of these silent structures, and keep a keen eye out, for in Pyramiden, polar bears may roam the streets. It is essential to stick together as a group for a safe and memorable exploration.
As we journey back to Longyearbyen, our route takes us past Skansbukta, where our guide will unravel the tragic events surrounding Svenskhuset (The Swedish House).
We look forward to welcoming you aboard, and we appreciate you for allowing us to be part of writing a new entry in your travel diary!
