Itinerary

Day 1 - Longyearbyen

Longyearbyen is nestled in a valley along the shores of the picturesque Adventfjord, encircled by steep mountains and numerous glaciers. With only about 25 miles of roads, this village is divided into several neighbourhoods, including the town centre and Nybyen (New Town). Nybyen features charming miners' barracks built after the war, guest houses, a restaurant, and a gallery, and offers beautiful views of the iconic Hiorthfjellet mountain. Make sure to visit the Svalbard Museum, a perfect interlude between activities such as summer dogsledding or cruising to the abandoned Russian city of Pyramiden.
