Planned itinerary Post-program
Day 1: Disembarkation/ Isfjord Safari: Walruses and glacier front
After your transfer from the ship to your hotel you may enjoy some free time to explore the city before your excursion starts around noon at your hotel. Begin your adventure with a short transfer to the harbour. Before you board your sturdy open polar circle boat, you will receive all of the necessary safety equipment (floatation suit) for the trip. Enjoy the cruise along the Isfjord and admire the beautiful Arctic landscapes and animals which might cross our way. Once we arrive at Borebukta, we will spend some time enjoying the sight of the walruses. The walrus is perhaps the most fascinating animal in the Arctic. They are curious, and if we are lucky we may experience them close up. After our visit to Borebukta we will set course towards the glacier face. Close to the massive wall of ice, we will make a landing to enjoy our lunch. After lunch, return to the pier and take the transfer back to the hotel.
