We booked 3-days tour to Barentsburg with Grumant team in April 2021. Here is our experience: 1. Pre-booking communication: Excellent, they answered all of our questions within hours, gave us all of the information needed. Best communication I have ever experienced. 2. Tour itself: we got a good instructions about scooter driving, and the adventure begun. Guides were very skilled, we felt safe all the time. Helped a lot with scooter tricks, showing how to turn, how to drive uphill etc. Guides were very helpful all the time, there were many stops, each one was followed by some interesting story about the place. 3. Flow of information during the trip: each day we were given perfect instructions with time of the next event. There are quite many things to do in Barentsburg, so it is not only about the scooter. Guides were eating dinners and lunches with us, providing great atmosphere and even more stories about the place. In general, there is not even a single negative thing, I would find abut the the tour or the company. 100% professionalism!

Jittery with excitement, we headed out from the Russian house in Longyearbyen in the morning, heading East through the splendor of the Advent and Sassen valleys. We rested at Blåisen (the Blue ice) before embarking on the most challenging part of our trek. What waited was 80 kilometers of continuous glaciers flanked by snow and wind-scoured mountain peaks stabbing up through the undulating cover of ice, the Arctic sun painting everything in pink, white and golden colors. After making the 800-meters descent from the vast expanse of the Lomonosov ice sheet and down the Ragnar glacier, we finally started to crawl along the coast of Petuniabukta (the Petunia Bay) and reached the ghost mining town of Pyramiden in time for a late lunch. Hotel Tulpan is the only glimmer of light and human life in the Russian ghost town. There, w got a warm reception, excellent meals, comfortable rooms, and two extensive, guided tours through the abandoned town. It was an eerie experience walking through the derelict buildings, as it looked like everyone just got up and left, leaving everything behind as if fleeing from some unimaginable calamity. We retraced the 180-km route back the next morning, trusting our guides and their experience as we drove through 60 km of white-outs and strong wind on the glaciers, getting a true sense of the real Spitsbergen. The whole experience was made easy by Andrey and Dimitri, our two experienced, knowledgeable (and very laid-back) Grumant guides!

The year 2020 will for always be a special one, but it helped me to chose one of the most memorable destinations. I went on a seven day tour with Grumant Arctic Travel Company, exploring the arctic for 7 days. Pyramiden is a strange place where time has stopped, nature have started to reclaim what’s theirs and the few people who still runs the hotel and guiding is filled with warmth and smiles. Even though the hotel is super nice, it’s the surroundings that you would explore (with an armed guide). The Polar bear could be around, so you should be most careful. Pyramiden has a lot of abandoned buildings witch is a great place to explore life in the 80’s an 90’s before the settlement was abandoned in 1998. You should look forward to traditional Russian cousin in the restaurant, friendly people and an atmosphere that will give you long lasting memories. I already miss this place, and the calm feeling it gives your soul. Tanks a lot to our guides, this has been a great trip

The Grumant TEAM is a BIG and wonderful family living in the most isolated and difficult part of our WORLD. They created a big town and now they are offering to share the experience, adventures and KNOWLEDGE with us, giving incredible adventures in maybe the most beautiful place in the world. I've been many times in Svalbard and always I visit Barentsburg, they are like a family opening the arms to you. They have TWO hotels in Barensburg (Barentsburg is a super nice hotel, like any CITY hotel, like a "Holiday Inn" and Pomor Hostel) and one in Pyramidem (I've never been there yet, my trip was cancelled this year 2020 for the COVID19) and the hotels are perfect, the food incredible and everything. I had a "big" accident close to Barentsburg and we returned to the town and I received a first class surgery and the best attention as possible, I am alive thank you to GRUMANT. The team is perfect prepared, with knowledge about everything and security, With them you can do Pyramidem and Barentsburg, and if you want the full complete adventure, there is one that is like one week. DO IT if you can

On my last three trips to Svalbard I have been a satisfied guest at Grumant Travel Agency. They have provided very good service for me by booking my stays at Pyramiden Hotel-and been very helpfull too with the questions I had regarding my stay in Pyramiden Hotel-and in 2017 I was even upgraded to a better room at the hotel. The staff there are all very friendly and helpfull. I Can only recommend this Company if you want good service and experiences on your trip to Svalbard.
