Tour Itinerary

Longyearbyen under the midnight sun

Arrive at the airport and transfer to the Coal Miners' Cabin for a 5 night stay.

Coal Miners' Cabins
Walrus on an iceberg, Svalbard

This morning, explore Longyearbyen town and valley with a local guide. In the afternoon, board an open boat for a fjord safari where the Arctic wildlife is incredibly diverse. Head to Borebukta where the walruses live and get up close to the glacier front. Whales, birds and even polar bears are also sometimes spotted in this area. (B)

Coal Miners' Cabins
Abandoned mining town, Pyramiden in Svalbard

Head out on an electric catamaran for an eco-friendly cruise to the Russian ghost town of Pyramiden. Sail through the icy seas towards Billefjord and keep your eyes peeled for wildlife like seals, foxes, and if you're lucky, polar bears. Over 1000 people used to live in Pyramiden until the the 90's when the mine was shut down and the city was quickly vacated. Today, you can still see the coffee cups abandoned where they were last put down and the music lying in wait at the piano to be played as you explore this perfectly preserved, Soviet era mining town. (B)

Coal Miners' Cabins
Summer Dog Sledding

Dog mushing is no longer only for the winter. Experience dog sledding without the snow, driving a specially designed wheeled sled to enjoy the fresh Arctic air and mountain views as you tour Endalen past the cableway turning station and towards the old Gruve 5 mine. (B)

Coal Miners' Cabins
Longyearbyen in the summertime

Enjoy a free day to explore the colourful town of Longyearbyen or book an optional excursion. Perhaps you'll choose to go kayaking through the waters of Adventfjorden or spend an evening in the atmospheric Arctic wilderness at Camp Barentz. Speak to your Regent Norway specialist about adding one of these exciting activities to your holiday. (B)

Coal Miners' Cabins
