A little time for sightseeing in Longyearbyen today. We did a short hike up to Gruve 2b above Nybyen. It closed production in 1968, but is still open for visitors. It's also known as Julenissegruva (the Santa Claus mine). Local children leave wish lists in a mailbox below, and Santa Claus is said to come out of the mine to collect them. #Longyearbyen #Gruve2b #Julenissegruva #runasrundreiser

Visited an abandoned mine today. It was filled with icicles and cool artifacts. ⚒🔦 #julenissegruva #santaclausmine #mine2b #svalbard #longyearbyen #arctic #unisvalbard

Here in #Longyearbyen the #children get told that the #santaclaus is living in a old #coalmine up in the #mountain
You can see the lights from the #mine so everyone know that it is a busy time for #Santa
And here you can post your letter with your #christmaswishes 🎅🏼

From todays trip to mine2b / #gruve2b which was in operation from 1937 to 1968. This mine is called "the Santa Claus mine" (#julenissegruva) by the locals, and this is the place where the local children can deposit their chistmas present wishes before christmas. Really cool to walk inside the buildings and see one of the cultural heritage places in #Svalbard #Nordenskiöldfjellet and #Longyearbreen is seen in the background #hiking #trekking #få #ut #ute
