Pick-up / drop-off at your hotel/guesthouse in town. Please be ready 5 minutes prior to your scheduled booking. This way we can pick up our guests more effectively. Are you travelling by airplane after the tour we are happy to drop you off at the airport. Please let us know ahead of the tour.
You can expect an authentic tour into the facility located outside the mountain until we enter one of the main tunnels of the mine and walk 250 meters in. We will then continue into one of the side tunnels where the first seed bank on Svalbard is located. During the tour, you will get the opportunity to crawl through a narrow tunnel where you can get a feeling of the working conditions of the last low-drifted mine in Longyearbyen.
Tours are held in either Norwegian, English, or German (May-August). Please be aware that most of our tours are held in English. NB! Translation from group leaders only possible on private tours.
During the tour we will hand out coveralls, helmets and head lamps. Wear warm clothes as the facility’s inside temperature is close to the outside temperature. Warm jacket and pants, wool, warm shoes, gloves and hat are recommended.
We require a minimum of 2 guests to hold a visit.
Enjoy your visit!
