Closed Rib to Pyramiden and Nordenskiöld Glacier - Svalbardbooking.com

Join a small, exclusive group of guests on 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.

Included: Transport to and from hotels, Search- and rescue insurance, Guide with boat, fuel and safety equipment, Warm lunch from "Polfareren Resturant" – Svalbard Hotel.

Own clothing: Wollsocks, Inner layer: Wool, Mid layer: Sweater in fleece or wool and windproof pants

Pickup: At hotels about 10:00

*Not suitable if pregnant or suffering from back problems. The boat may not also carry passengers under 14 years unless any such passenger is accompanied by an adult.
