1-day trip to Grumant and Colesbay by RIB

On the way from Longyearbyen in the open Polarcirkel boat you will enjoy the freshness of the second biggest fjord of the archipelago, Isfjorden, translated from Norwegian as «Ice fjord».

 

The route is dedicated  to the history of the first Russian mining towns on Svalbard - Grumant and Colesbay.

 

These settlements were founded in the beginning of 20th century, so practically, it was a starting place of the Russian mining development on the archipelago. Grumant and Colesbay were connected with each other by a narrow railroad used for the coal transportation and which still can be spotted from the sea.

 

If the weather permits, we will try to dock near the towns at the historically important place – the hut of Vladimir Rusanov, to walk around. During the sea passage, you will also pass by majestic bird- cliffs and even have a chance to spot some whales and dolphins in the fjord.

 

 

 

 

         

          On Svalbard weather conditions are changing quickly so that is why for the safety and comfort of our guests the landing on Grumant might

          be changed to .

          Program duration: 5 hours
