Fjord-cruise to Pyramiden – A few operators offer this itinerary, which combines a fairly long journey up Isfjord and into Billefjord to the (almost) abandoned town of Pyramiden, with a stop at the Nordenskiöld glacier. We went with Henningsen Transport & Guiding on the MS Billefjord, leaving at 8:30am for the 11-hour round trip/. The journey out was interesting, with... 更多
I had a boat tour to Pyramiden with Henningsen Transport and Guiding. I found it more interesting than Barentsburg due to the overall landscape , view to Esmark glacier and the history behind it.
Very special place with a special vibe. The visit is very interesting. Some places would need some maintenance in order for this town to continue to survive. Sasha, who welcome us, was very sympathic. The section with the stalline statue is quite impressive. It would be even better if there was some explanation and historic facts on the building.
Abandoned in 98 it looks much older than that! You can see ussr vestiges, Lenine bust and olympics flame! Old mines! But still an hotel, 8 Russian guardians, a bar, some researchers... It's like an outdoor museum of USSR,,

Arriving at Pyramiden we were met by Sasha our Russian guide who complete with Soviet era hat brought us on a tour of the once thriving Soviet mining community - He was... 更多
This is a fascinating place to visit to get a feel for Russian life out in the wilderness. The Russian guide was very witty and spoke flawless English.
Pyramiden is a very strange place, but very interesting. I'ts an old Russian coalmine, but now just a memory for turists. You must go there by boat, (or helicopter), and it's part of a boattrip from Longyearbyen. Don't miss it!
