After being fully briefed and equipped, we head out of Longyearbyen, passing the magnificent Tempel Mountain and the Nordenskiöld glacier. Cross the frozen fjords of Spitsbergen and visit the abandoned Russian town of Pyramiden. This was previously the largest settlement on Svalbard with around 1500 inhabitants. The town was abandoned in 1998, but the buildings and infrastructure are still intact. Today Pyramiden is on National Geographic’s list of the top 20 ghost towns in the world! Enjoy a guided tour of this thrilling town.
