    Day 10: Adventsdalen Valley Safari 
    Following breakfast at your hotel, you have a fascinating group tour of the Adventdalen valley. Summer in the Arctic is short and hectic with ra ich animal and bird life, and it is a common thing to see reindeer and foxes as in the summer months from May to the end of August the region has a day light all around the clock.

    During the tour you drive Can-Am Outlander ATV to see the beautiful summery Svalbard landscape from the best angles. On your way you make stops in several points like in the old airport Longyearbyen, at one of the mines located in that region and up on one of the local mountain tops to catch the view over the valley and the fjord.

    Day 11: Boat Trip to Pyramiden
    Following breakfast at your hotel, your driver transfers you to the pier for another great group journey. This time your means of transport is a boat and your destination is located on the north, north and even further north. Here you find the ghost town called Pyramiden. This former coal mine that belonged to the USSR is mostly abandoned and sometimes even has polar bears walking it's streets today.

    Complete with the world’s northernmost statue of Lenin, this powerful, brutally isolated town is surrounded by empty buildings and an obvious lack of life. Rumors of Pyramiden’s significance during the cold war abound, but one thing is certain: this was an Arctic outpost, and an Arctic paradise for those who lived and worked here.

    While the sun shines over the stern, you sail north through the Isfjord and glide slowly past the bird cliff at Hatten. They aren’t big, but the Brunnich’s guillemot swarm in and out in big flocks. Like all bird cliffs in Svalbard, the cliff shines in bright shades of green, yellow and orange. You then cross Sassenfjord and see the mighty mountain Tempelet guarding the entrance to Tempelfjord. This mountain landmark towers over the fjord-like a Sphinx.

    After the day-trip, you are taken back to your hotel.

    Day 12: Flight to Oslo & Departure
    This is the last day of your amazing Norwegian adventure! After breakfast you check out from your hotel and your driver transfers you to the airport for a quick flight to Oslo.
