Adventure in the large archipielago of the Arctic Ocean
During our staying in Longyearbyen, an ancient mining settlement in the Svalbard islands, we will cruise through the Isfjorden and visit Pyramiden, a ghost town in the high north, complete with the world’s northernmost statue of Lenin. From the boat, we could see a varety of animals and arctic birds.
We will enjoy making a kayak trip, paddling on the Adventfjorden, with more than 7 km long and 4 km wide, surrounded by mountains over 1,000 meters high. We also could observe the nature in its purest state.

We will live the adventure of traveling through different paths in the tundra and mountains, and we will discover the surroundings of Longyearbyen on Icelandic horses, and we will visit a glacier and hike up a barren mountain, following the Larsglacier up to 500 meters above sea level and climb to the summit of Sarkofagen Mountain. At this lookout point we have a magnificent view of two grand glaciers, the city of Longyearbyen and the deep blue sea itself.

In midsummer we can enjoy the midnight sun and in September and October, the evening in Svalbard will give us a light show in the sky that we will never forget it!
