What To Expect

Lunch will be served on the ship before we make our way towards Pyramiden at the edge of Mimerbukta. Pyramiden, which literally means “the pyramid” is a small abandoned Russian town named by Swedish geologists after the characteristic pyramid-like mountain-top nearby.

We take you on two guided tours in Pyramiden: One given by a local Russian guide who will introduce you to the history of the ghost town. The second tour has its focus on photography and provides the guest with the necessary time to picture the coal mining installations and the old buildings from outside as well as inside. Hundreds of Black-legged kittywakes have taken over some of the buildings and offer shots that might be even too close for the zoom lens! The tour includes one overnight stay in Pyramiden Hotel.
