Join us on the worlds northernmost fjord-cruise to the ghost town, Pyramiden, with a chance to experience natures own unique light-show.
Svalbard is the only place in the world where it is possible to see the daytime northern lights. This is a more red northern light than what you usually can experience. This is not always easy for the human eye to observe, but the camera lens will capture this perfectly.
After about 3 hours we arrive in Pyramiden, that is ranked high up on hte list of the best ghost towns in the world.
Our guide takes us through the abandoned town, and gives us a glimpse back in the history of Pyramiden.
On our trip back to Longyearbyen, we get another chance to spot the luminous, and hauntingly beautiful, ghostly dancers on the polar night skies.
A warm lunch is served on the way to Pyramiden.
Marinated whale meat, baked salmon and pork rib, is on the menu. Served with a pasta salad, rice and our own locally baked bread.
