Northern Lights cruise to the goast town Pyramiden

Join us on the world’s northernmost fjord cruise, to the ghost town of Pyramiden, and get ready to experience nature’s own fireworks – the Northern Lights.

Day-side Aurora Borealis

Svalbard is the only inhabited place where you can see the day-side aurora, with Longyearbyen located just 1300km from the North Pole. In October and November the days darken, and on the water, away from the lights of town, the chances of spotting the dancing lights increases. Imagine watching the playful light in the sky, and then seeing it reflect in the water around you. This is what we are looking for on this adventure.After spending time on deck to hunt the light, and listen to the experienced guide tell us about the region and the aurora, a warm lunch will be served from the grill, before we set a course for the abandoned settlement. Marinated whale meat, baked salmon and pork rib, is on the menu. Served with a pasta salad, rice and our own locally baked bread.

An abandoned city

Pyramiden is even further north than Longyearbyen, and was abandoned in 1998. The streets are deserted, but our guide will lead the way and show the guests around the eerily quiet settlement. In October the middle of the day will be light, but as we head into November the winter twilight will fall over Svalbard, bringing an added dimension to the visit. After experiencing the town, we will board the boat once more, and make our way into the darkness, back towards civilisation. The crew will follow the skies, and let us know of any auroral bursts, and kiosk will be open with the opportunity to buy tasty Norwegian waffles, drinks and snacks.
