Spitsbergen Cruise Photos

From: MS Nordstjernen cruise review



I had joined an informal walking tour led by Stephane, one of the guides from the Nordstjernen. He drew our attention to an aerial cable lift on the mountain behind Ny-ålesund and to the small building on top.The building was Koldewey Station, one of several research facilities operated jointly by Germany's Alfred Wegener Institute (AWI) and the French Polar Institute Paul Emil Victor (IPEV) as the French-German Arctic Research Base.
