In the morning we set sail from Longyearbyen. While cruising you have the opportunity to gaze at the scenic landscape, and en route to Grumant you can observe the stunning wildlife display, with the thousands of birds gathered on the rocks. While astonished by the orchestra of birds, we continue towards Barentsburg, the Russian capital of Svalbard, where the statue of Lenin still looks down on you. During the trip, the on board guide will describe the scenery and enlighten you in great detail about Barentsburg – all to ensure that you arrive the city well prepared to explore the town.
Back in Longyearbyen you will start your next catamaran sailing, this time to Pyramiden, the Russian ghost town of Svalbard. Travelling through Billefjorden, you can observe the distinct arctic wildlife in a magnificent landscape, containing an incredible industrial heritage. The staff on board will guide you through the surroundings, and enlighten you about Pyramiden. When we reach the abandoned Russian coal mining settlement, a local guide will show you around.
On the return part of the trip we come close to the Nordenskiold glacier, which presents the chance to view the enormous blue walls rising up from the sea. This part of the trip can be observed either from the deck on the outside or, if you prefer, from inside the vessel’s warm and cosy cabin, surrounded with panoramic windows. Either way – the scenery we sail through will definitely enchant!
