Arrive at any time. Overnight accommodation on bed and breakfast basis at Coal Miners Cabin or similar.

Longyearbyen & Nordenskiold Land
2Day

Longyearbyen & Nordenskiold Land

We are kitted out and given an introduction on how to ride a snowmobile before setting off towards the lodge, located approx. 30 km from Longyearbyen. After a quick check-in at the lodge, we drive on towards Sassendalen, Fredheim and the magnificent and scenic Tempelfjorden. This fjord holds most of what Svalbard can offer; mighty peaks, spectacular glaciers facing into the sea, and an exciting history of past hunting and culture. We spend the afternoon exploring this fjord before returning to our warm and comfortable lodge where food and drinks are served.

Nordenskiold Land
3Day

Nordenskiold Land

On day 3 we head east. We aim to cross the huge glacier plateaus to arrive at the sea ice on the east side of Spitsbergen. Here we'll take a break to enjoy lunch en route, and to use our binoculars, looking for the King of the Arctic. If we are lucky, we may see polar bears on the pack ice. The tour itself is the goal, and we drive through mighty and varying landscapes.

Pyramiden
4Day

Pyramiden

The Russian mining town of Pyramiden was abandoned in the summer of 1998, however the buildings and infrastructure is still intact. Over the years, things haven't changed, and the time apparently stood still. With its wide streets and well planned town structure the town bears witness to Soviet presence on the island in the 1970's and 80's. Here most things were organised for efficient coal mining, however also for a society ensuring the welfare and family life for the mine workers.

To get to this beautifully located town we have to cross Tempelfjorden, drive through wide valleys and across glaciers before we arrive at the sea ice at the innermost part of Billefjorden where we also pass close to the mighty glacier Nordenskiöldbreen.

Continue on to Longyearbyen for overnight stay at Coal Miners Cabin or similar on a bed & breakfast basis.

Longyearbyen
