About

In open Polarcirkel boats your guide will power towards the mighty Fuglefjella which now, in the autumn, seems empty without the thousands of birds that have occupied its walls during the summer. Even so, the cliffs are an impressive sight as they tower over the fjord - a vertical wall 500 metres high.

Those with interest in history should look forward to beach landings where we will look at remains from Svalbard`s fascinating coal mining past. In the years after John Munro Longyear started "Longyear City", many other nations took an interest in the area. Grumant, which lies in a ravine in the bird cliffs, is a Russian mining community that was abandoned in 1961. This trip will also visit Hiorthhamn, a Norwegian minin town that was last used in 1940.
