Go back in time as a miner
Your guide will meet you at the harbor, and you will board a bus to travel to the mine. During the journey up the mountain, your guide will point out a number of interesting sites, including the Svalbard Global Seed Vault, and prepare you for arrival at the Gruve 3 mine.
At Gruve 3 you will change into miners' working clothes, put on a helmet, and stamp yourself in, just like the miners did when starting their shift. The mine guide will lead you through this historical place, and you'll see abandoned mining equipment. Your headlamp will provide light in the otherwise coal-black caverns, and you will imagine the lives of these hardier pioneers of the Arctic.
- Included: You will be equipped with miners' working clothes, helmet, and headlamp
- Walking information: Transportation to the mine by bus. Some walking inside the mine.
