Longyearbyen: Historic Coal Mine Tour at Gruve 3

Longyearbyen: Historic Coal Mine Tour at Gruve 3

Start with pickup at the hotels and guesthouses in town before a short drive to the outside facility of Mine Number 3. On the way there, you will pass the world-renowned Global Seed Vault where over 1 million seeds from around the world are stored. The first seed bank on Svalbard was opened in Mine no. 3 in 1984. This is where the ideas to build the Global Seed Vault on Svalbard started — by storing seeds in the permafrost with no need for electricity.  Enter the facility and explore maps over Longyearbyen and Svalbard. Enjoy a historic coal mine and listen to the stories and anecdotes of what was the last mine in town where thin-seam production was applied. Expect in-depth information about the town’s history and why some men decided to settle here some 100 years ago. A model of the mine is used to illustrate how the coal was extracted using thin-seam techniques. Walk through the workshops and see machines and equipment that was left behind when the mine was shut down in 1996. Put on a miner’s overall and crawl through a replica of a mining shaft and get a feeling of how a miner spent his days. Towards the end of the tour, discover the mine itself by walking 300 meters in and entering two different side tunnels.

Longyearbyen: Private Guided Walking Tour

Longyearbyen: Private Guided Walking Tour

Longyearbyen was founded in 1907 by its namesake, mining company owner John Munro Longyear, and is to this day operational, the northernmost settlement in the world with more than a thousand inhabitants. The northern location has led to several unique laws, one of which renders it impossible to be buried there, as the permafrost doesn't allow for the bodies being reclaimed by the earth. A truly spectacular place to visit!

Barentsburg: Coal Mine Expedition

Barentsburg: Coal Mine Expedition

The mine in Barentsburg is the one with the shortest coal production and the northernmost one among all the Russian mines. On the mine tour you can see a war between man and nature, mechanisms of getting into the ground depth and of mine reinforcement and collapse protection. You can learn how the coal is being produced and transported onto the surface. You can talk with a miner, a person who spends a big part of his life underground. You can hear sounds of the underground mine core and feel a breath of the wind going up to the surface from the half-kilometer depth. After the tour, you will get a certificate that confirms the visit to the northernmost Russian coal mine in the world. For the tour, we provide specialized equipment such as an overall that protects you from the dust, warm waterproof boots, protective gloves, a hard hat with a mining lamp, and a self-rescue device (a portable breathing device). Before the tour start, you go through the safety briefing prep and then confirm it acknowledged in a specific record book. Tours are guided by well-experienced miners.
