Welcome to a unique boat tour experience aboard MS Bard. On this trip you get to experience the very best of Svalbard's spectacular coastal landscapes. The captain sets the course according to today's wind and weather conditions - no two trips are the same!

Captain's choice
The excitement grows as we approach the harbour in Longyearbyen. The trip ahead of us has no fixed route or destination; We sail where the conditions are most favourable, based on weather conditions, waves, and recent observations of wildlife. In other words, the goal of the trip is to capture the best experiences the day has to offer.

Each month in Svalbard is unique. A trip under the midnight sun in May will be different frpm when the polar night approaches in October. Early in the season, the snow still lies on the mountains, and sea ice may still cover parts of the fjords. From June, the landscape changes colours, from muted tones to contrasting shades of green and yellow. With a little luck, wildlife appears along the way. We might see reindeer, seals, whales and – with some extra luck – polar bears. We’ll pass cultural monuments and historical sites, and the guides will ensure an unforgettable experience for all senses.

About the boat
MS Bard is a new and groundbreaking catamaran for day cruises, specially built to leave the smallest footprint possible in the vulnerable Arctic nature. The hybrid-electric motor allows both guests and wildlife to relax, and glides quietly through the waters where this matters most.

The boat has a contemporary, Norwegian design with spacious layout. You are free to move on several outdoor decks, or enjoy the view from inside through massive panoramic windows. Comfortable lounges are available outside as well as indoors. There is plenty of space on board and everyone can enjoy Svalbard's endless and spectacular landscape without crowding. Inside the lounge you will find a café and bar with a varied selection of snacks and drinks.

Included:
- Transport to/from the port in Longyearbyen
- Boat trip with guide on board
- All necessary safety equipment
