Longyearbyen in a nutshell - sightseeing with the local expert

with Svalbard Buss & Taxi

We drive around Longyearbyen, across the valley towards Gruve 7, and towards the airport and Mine 3. The guide focuses on what we see and will answer questions, as well as tell about Longyearbyen’s history, from the beginning of the mining to the present modern society.


  • There will be a stop on the way for photography
  • The trip takes around 2 hours
  • Daily departures from hotels at 10:00 (10am) and 16:00 (4pm)


We pick up at the hotels daily so it pays off to book in advance. The tour is guided in the area nearby Longyearbyen. We drive up to viewpoints for a good view of the city and the ancient mines. We continue to Adventdalen and stop for photography. In the valley we pass the Nordlys station and the old airport. There is often reindeer and goose here.

Then we continue to the Eiscat radar and stop at the viewpoint for photography. At this stop you can see the whole valley and across the fjord to the glaciers at the other side. We travel further towards the airport with a stop at the Global Seed Vault, on the way up to Gruve 3/Mine 3. The tour ends on Gruve 3 and then we return to the hotels.


The price includes transport from/to the accommodation (does not apply to the campsite).
