Overview
Details

Ny-Ålesund is located in Kongsfjorden, the Kings Bay coal company was operating in this area until the early 1960's. For those who are familiar with the "race" against the North pole, Ny-Ålesund had a central place in history, with great names like Amundsen and Mobile being key players. Today the settlement is a center for international Arctic scientific research and environmental monitoring.

Svalbard Booking is now offering a boat trip to this remote settlement, starting out from Longyearbyen going up along the Forlandet Island to the majestic Kongsfjorden. Our boat has a panoramic view and comfortable seats. A hot meal is served on the trip. After entering Ny-Ålesund harbor the guide will take you around the settlement, telling stories of mining and polar exploration.

If we have time for another stop on our way back to Longyearbyen, we will stop at one of the many glacier fronts on the west side of Spitsbergen.

Note: 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.
