Incredible snowscooter trip to Pyramiden, the abandoned Russian settlement. Amazing sights into the heart of the Svalbard wilderness.
We start this trip heading north through the valleys Dee Geerdalen and Gipsdalen. The landscape opens up as we come closer to Sassenfjorden. Driving on the fjord ice, valleys and glaciers heading north, we will be in Pyramiden in 4 hours. As we arrive in old russian miners settlement, closed since 1998 , we will have lunch. Due to the snow and weather conditions we might take a trip to the front of Nordenskjøldbree at the head of Petunisbukta. Driving back we will se Tempelfjorde and Fredheim. Peacefully the arctic wilderness glides by, leading us up on the valley of Eskerdalen and back to Adventdalen. After only a short while we are back in Longyearbyen again. Duration 10 hours, the trip is about 180 kilometres to drive.
