Complete your Arctic adventure with a visit to a legendary place far to the north — Pyramiden. Just within 2 days, you will time travel past glaciers and dive into the atmosphere of the Soviet era.
It was one of the most populated settlements in Svalbard in the late 20th century, and now it is an Arctic time-machine and open-air museum where you can easily get a feeling of the Soviet-style as the atmosphere and exteriors of the settlement have been preserved.
