The world’s northernmost fjord-cruise – Summer campaign on select departures in June and July 2022

We set course towards Pyramiden and the Nordenskiöld glacier. With vast opportunities to experience the arctic wildlife, keep your eyes open and look for whales, seals, and a plethora of birds by the bird cliff of Diabas. And if we are really lucky, a Polar Bear might be roaming around by the glacier.
The guide on board the ship will talk about the history of Longyearbyen, glaciers, arctic wildlife, and possibly also a “polar tall tale” or two…

A warm lunch is served by the glacier
Barbequed meat and baked salmon is on the menu. Served with a pasta salad, rice, and our own locally baked bread. A vegetarian option is available at the time of reservation, for an additional fee of NOK 50 per person.

We will disembark in Pyramiden, where the Russian guide is waiting to take us on a guided tour of this Arctic ghost town. He greets us with a heartily: “Welcome to Russia!” A visit inside some of the abandoned buildings as included in the tour.
In Pyramiden polar bears might roam the streets, so it is important to stay together as a group.

On our way back to Longyearbyen, we will pass by Skansbukta, where the guide will tell us about the tragic happenings at Svenskhuset (The Swedish house)
