We got to Pyramiden. The town was abandoned in a hurry in 1998, and is now a ghost town, with just a handful of Russians living there to staff its recently re-opened hotel. I was staying there for three days, but not in the hotel in town. My accommodation was much more modest, a bunk in a converted shipping container by the port, a mile or so from town.

The mountain of Pyramiden loomed over its namesake town as the tourists from the boat looked around the ruins.
