Join us for an exciting and speedy open boat fjord safari to Grumant.

Grumant is like a little ghost town tucked between mountains towards Coles Bay. This was one of the largest post war settlements on Svalbard. If one took into account Coles Bay, there were about 1200 inhabitants at the most. The Russian coal company Artikugol ran the mining industry in Grumant valley and had their port of shipment in Coles Bay. Between these to places was a narrow gauge railway which we can still see the remains of. The settlement was abandoned at the beginning of the 60s. Today the abandoned buildings of Grumant are the permanent homes of the seabird kittiwake.
