Crossing the Isfjorden we approach the impressive Esmarkglacier in the Bay of Ymer. A warm lunch from the barbeque is served as we leave the glacier behind and make our way towards the Russian mining settlement of Barentsburg.

Crossing the Isfjorden we approach the impressive Esmarkglacier in the Bay of Ymer. A warm lunch from the barbeque is served as we leave the glacier behind and make our way towards the Russian mining settlement of Barentsburg. At the western mouth of the fiord footprints of dinosaurs have been found near the caracteristic Castle Rock formation.

We dock in Barentsburg and are welcommed by our Russian guide who, in charming English, conveys the daily life and activities in this little piece of Russia in Norway.

A limited time is at hand to explore the site on your own. The souvenir store will be open, and you can buy postcards stamped with the "9178 Barentsburg" logo from the Norwegian postoffice located in the hotel.

On the way back to Longyearbyen we offer a photo safari along the deserted Russian settlements in Coles Bay and Grumant, including the teeming bird cliffs of Fuglefjellet, where you will marvel thousands of breeding birds, who willingly entertain us with their abundance of life and flutter of music.

Tour duration : aprox. 9-10 hours
Minimum number of passengers: 8 at full price
