From Longyearbyen, the voyage takes you through the majestic Billefjorden, and onwards to Pyramiden. During this scenic trip, the staff on board the boat will guide you through the surroundings, and enlighten you about Pyramiden -  so that when we finally arrive you are well prepared to explore the abandoned Russian coal mining settlement all with a local guide for this trip.   On the return part of the trip we come up-close with the Nordenskioldbreen glacier, which presents the chance to view the enormous blue walls rising up from the sea.  P.S. please note that you may enjoy a one day round trip to Barentsburg and Pyramiden by buying single tickets to each of the destinations.
