About

Step into the history of Longyearbyen and its extensive coal mining industry. During this tour you will experience the life of a miner and explore equipment and machinery from Gruve 3’s days of production.

The coal mining industry laid the foundations for settling at such high latitudes and eventually allowed Longyearbyen grow into the – in many ways colourful – town it is today.

Sharpen your ears and prepare for a historical and exciting tour into one of Longyearbyen’s coal mines.
