Awesome Experience - very passionate host!
Mar 2020
Very passionate and complete explanation of mining and Svalbard's history. Great tour of the mine, we got to experience first hand how the miners worked back in the day. Got to visit the Arctic Archive and the old Seed Vault. Eye opening experience into the depths of the mountains in Longyearbyen. The guide was very nice, informative and engaged! A total must if you visit Longyearbyen !

Interesting views - good host

the tour gives you a good insight of the work back in the days and nowdays. take your own piece of "the best high quality coal of the world" or crawl into the coalminers day of work.

It's cold but the wind doesn't blow in here!

We visited the mine as part of a small group. It is interesting and we had an excellent guide. The coal, itself, is of an unusual grade and it is extremely hard but the seams are not that large: a primary use is in steel furnaces. Probably, the most remarkable feature was the scale of the operation and although you are underground you are at altitude!

Impressive

I visited this during my visit this winter. Of course, it was pitch dark and there was no sun at all. But what was impressive is the scale of operation given the logistical and infrastructure challenges. Def visit this when in town.
