About

Join us on an exclusive trip in a closed RIB boat 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. Our boat is smaller and faster than the larger boats going to the same destination, our guests don`t travel in large groups.

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.

There will be a guided trip in Pyramiden. On our way back we drive to the majestic Nordenskiöldbreen. The front of the glacier is one of the most spectacular on Svalbard.
