Day 1: Cruise Isfjorden from Longyearbyen
After disembarkation, you'll transfer to your hotel in Longyearbyen. You'll have some free time to explore the city before your excursion. You'll enjoy a wildlife watching trip to the Svalbard archipelago. We'll explore Isfjorden in a closed hybrid boat among beautiful Arctic scenery and wildlife. Using the boat's electric motor, we’ll cruise silently towards Borebukta where we hope to see walruses. If they appear, their natural curiosity may allow us to get quite close. Then it's time for hot drinks and freshly baked buns before heading back to your Longyearbyen hotel.
