Want to see it all? It is possible to visit all of the settlements on Svalbard, if you go by boat. Join us for a 1 week cruise from Longyearbyen to Ny Ålesund, Svea, Barentsburg and the ghost town of Pyramiden. We will also sail past some amazing glacier and hopefully discover the vast wildlife of the arctic.
Longyearbyen is the biggest settlement in Svalbard, with more than 2000 permanent residents and the seat of the governor of Svalbard.
Barentsburg is a Russian settlement, with about 450 residents. Pyramiden is also a Russian settlement but was abandoned in 1998. Now it is open for tourist and home to around 12 people.
Ny Ålesund is a research settlement and home to around 150 scientist. It also have a long history as a starting point for expeditions towards the North Pole.
Svea is a mining settlement that closed down in 2018, and will be gone by 2021, so the time to visit, is now.
The boat is MS Strønstad, a comfortable lady with up to 16 beds, jacuzzi and sauna.
