Day 1: Arrival in Longyearbyen

After your flight to Longyearbyen, we’ll transfer you to your hotel. Enjoy your evening and a great night’s sleep. A delicious breakfast in the morning will set you up for your 4-hour wildlife watching excursion in the Svalbard archipelago.

Day 2: Cruise Isfjorden from Longyearbyen

Today we 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, where your Pre-Programme ends.
