Planned Post-Program itinerary

Day 1: Disembarkation/Walrus safari to Borebukta

After the transfer from the ship to your hotel, you can enjoy some free time exploring the city before the excursion starts from your hotel.

Begin your adventure with a short transfer to the harbor. Before you board the enclosed hybrid-electric powered boat, you’ll receive safety instructions for the trip. Enjoy the cruise along the Isfjord and admire the beautiful Arctic landscapes and the animals that cross our way. Once we arrive at Borebukta, we’ll spend time watching for walrus. The walrus is perhaps the most fascinating animal in the Arctic. They are very curious, and if we’re lucky, we may get to see them up close. In Borebukta, we’ll use the electric motor to drift in complete silence. This allows us to watch for and admire the wildlife without disturbing it. We’ll serve a snack on the trip, including hot drinks and sweet buns fresh from the bakery.

Then, you’ll return to the pier and be transferred back to your hotel.

Overnight stay at a hotel in Longyearbyen, including breakfast

Day 2: Departure

After breakfast, transfer from your hotel to the Longyearbyen airport to board your scheduled flight to Oslo. Your Post-Program ends upon your arrival at the Oslo airport.

Please note that walrus are wild animals and sightings are not guaranteed.
