    Longyearbyen Sightseeing on foot

    May - October

    Our sightseeing tour of Longyearbyen offers the opportunity to experience the world's northernmost settlement on foot. The town's colourful houses and unique sights from the coal mining era offer a special ambience that is not to be missed.

    What to expect during our sightseeing

    The walk through Longyearbyen takes you to the historical sites of the city. See, for example, the former seat of the governor of Svalbard or the striking Taubanesentrale, which towers over the city. In the past, coal from the mines was transported from here to the harbour.

    Our experienced guides will not only tell you about arctic life back then, but also about how the inhabitants of Longyearbyen spend their work and leisure time in this extreme environment.

    Times and starting point

    Our sightseeing tours are based on the landing times of the cruise ships and are offered in the morning and in the afternoon for 3 hours each.

    • The morning tour starts at the harbour and ends in Longyearbyen city centre.
    • The afternoon tour starts in the city centre and ends at the port on your cruise ship.
