Description de l'activité

During this exciting kayak trip on the northern Isfjord in Svalbard, you will paddle along magnificent fronts and icebergs. No matter if you are completely new to kayaking or if you have already some experience. Your professional guides on this tour will safely lead you through this extraordinary adventure.

Get a completely new perspective of the unique Arctic ecosystem while you are paddling through the water in sturdy tandem kayaks, surrounded only by icebergs and the breathtaking Nansen Glacier above you.

You will be picked up from your hotel and brought to the Guide's headquarter first. Here you will get equipped with all the necessary gear and clothing for this day trip. You will wear a dry suit so you can wear your own clothes underneath.

Once you are ready, you will drive to the north side of the Isfjord by speed boat. Don't worry, the RIB boats are comfortable and equipped with a warm cabin. The drive takes roughly one hour. During the ride, your experienced guide will give you detailed instruction about the gear and how to use the kayaks safely.

You will start at the bay in front of the Nansen glacier and paddle between the large icebergs. Your guide will safely navigate you through the bay.

Now it's time to enjoy the stunning views of the Glacier terminus, the toe of the glacier which reaches far into the sea. Despite the harsh climate conditions, nature and wildlife are absolutely beautiful around here. You will find delicate vegetation and birds all over the place. If you are lucky you may see animals on the ice sheets. And maybe you even get a chance to see glacier calving – the formation of new icebergs into the sea.

You will spend a few hours paddling in the bay before you head back to the boat. Here, a refreshing and energizing homemade soup is waiting for you before you drive back to Longyearbyen.
