About

Join us for an exciting and speedy open boat fjord safari to the Russian ghost town Pyramiden and the mighty Nordenskiöld glacier. Pyramiden was once one of the largest settlements on Svalbard, with about 1000 inhabitants. It was a good place to live, with school and kindergarten, hotel, restaurant and various other facilities.

In the late 90s the town was abandoned and it is now more like a historical ”document” where it lies at the head of Billefjorden. All the buildings and many technical installations still remain. Inside the houses everything is like it was when it was abandoned and it is not difficult to imagine the place teeming with activity.

The guide gives us a tour in the Pyramiden and we enjoy our expedition lunch outside before we head back to Longyearbyen. On our way back we drive up to the majestic Nordenskiöldbreen. The front of the glacier is one of the most spectacular on Svalbard. It is very likely you will get to see several animals, unique to the Arctic environment, while we drive to and from Pyramiden.

Note! Early in the season it may be too much ice in Billefjorden to reach Pyramiden by sea.

Remember to bring cash (NOK), if you want to buy something in Pyramiden.
