Fjord-Cruise towards The Nordenskiöld Glacier & Pyramiden
Up to 11 hours
We set course towards Pyramiden and the Nordenskiöld glacier. With vast opportunities to experience the arctic wildlife, keep your eyes open and look for whales, seals, and a plethora of birds by the bird cliff of Diabas. And if we are really lucky, a Polar Bear might be roaming around by the glacier.
The guide on board the ship will talk about the history of Longyearbyen, glaciers, arctic wildlife, and possibly also a “polar tall tale” or two…
We will disembark in Pyramiden, where the Russian guide is waiting to take us on a guided tour of this Arctic ghost town. He greets us with a heartily: “Welcome to Russia!” A visit inside some of the abandoned buildings as included in the tour.
In Pyramiden polar bears might roam the streets, so it is important to stay together as a group.
On our way back to Longyearbyen, we will pass by Skansbukta, where the guide will tell us about the tragic happenings at Svenskhuset (The Swedish house)
We look forward to welcome you aboard, and we appreciate the opportunity to assist you in writing a new entry in your travel diary!

We pick up from all the hotels in Longyearbyen, starting 30 minutes prior to departure.
Bus pickup starts from “the top” of the city and depending on the number of passengers we are picking up, it may take a few minutes before we reach your location.
Regarding pickup location: Cruiseport
This is the choice for those who don’t need a pickup and will meet directly at the boat instead.
For visiting cruise passengers, this is also the correct choice.
For guests joining us from a visiting cruise ship it’s only a short walk from the cruiseport to our boat. Under normal conditions, this is a 2-3 minute walk.
