When we arrive in Pyramiden a local guide will show you this remarkable and facinating town.

This trip can be enjoyed either from the deck on the outside of the boat, or if you prefer, from inside the vessels warm and cosy saloon, surrounded with panoramic windows. Either one of these preferences will mesmerize you with the fascinating sceneries, occurring in front of your very own eyes.
