Activity description

Svalbard is located far up north and the island is world-famous for its nature, wildlife and glaciers. During this exciting boat adventure, you will be taken far into the Arctic wilderness.

During the Midnight Sun, you are going to explore the beautiful Isfjord. Over the last couple of years, the entire region has been prospering and you might get the chance to see polar bears, a humpback whale or maybe even a blue whale!

You are going to pass breathtaking glacier fronts in the northern part of Isfjorden. The ice is constantly changing as small bits crack off into the fjord.  If you are lucky, there will be seals sunbathing on the ice.

Between May and August, you will stop at one of the cliffs around the fjord which are used by Svalbard's seabirds as a nesting spot.

On this tour, you will enjoy the comfort of closed and heated RIB boats so you can reach spots which aren't accessible to other boats which rely heavily on the weather conditions.

Activity requirements

The Guide of this tour recommends wearing long woollen underwear, an insulating layer and an additional wind and waterproof shell layer.
