- The world’s northernmost fjord-cruise -

To the arctic ghost town of Pyramiden, where polar bears are roaming the streets.

The Russian mining settlement Pyramiden was abandoned in 1998, leaving the buildings and infrastructure intact.
We pass close by the bird cliffs at Diabas before we reach Tempelfjorden and the cathedral-like mountain, Tempelfjellet. Warm lunch from the barbecue on deck, is served in front of the Nordenskiöld glacier with its majestic blue walls.
As we dock in Pyramiden, the english speaking Russian guide greets us with a heartwarming “Welcome to Russia”, and a big smile. Together, as a group, we investigate the once so well groomed settlement.

Included in the activity:
Transfer from/to accommodation, guided tour of Pyramiden.
Warm lunch on board. (We will try to accommodate any food allergies or special diets as closely as possible, if given advanced notice.)
