Visit a deserted mining town

Join an unforgettable experience. Walk between abandoned buildings and wander around this eerie but photogenic town. Photograph decaying structures and scattered, rusting machinery. Seven houses are standing, some even freshly painted. The lonely cemetery starkly contrasts with the abundant natural beauty surrounding it. Even though the people have left town, the wildlife certainly hasn’t. If you’re lucky, you’ll see musk oxen, eagles, and whales.
