Experience magnificent Arctic scenery close up and join us on a boat safari to Isfjord Radio and Barentsburg.
Your guide picks you up from your hotel at 08.30 am. After a short brief about the coming trip and few safety instructions, it’s time to dress in the rescue suites. These suites keep you dry and warm even in rougher weather.
A short transfer to the harbour and we are ready to set on sea in our open rib-style boats. We stop once and awhile to allow you to take photos and to tell you more about the arctic wildlife, geology and history of Spitsbergen. You pass cliffs teaming with seabirds, and see cute little puffins bobbing up and down on the gentle waves. After being heavily hunted in the past decades, whales and walruses are finally returning to the arctic fjords. So, keep your eyes open!
On the way we make a stop in Barentsburg to see this old russian mining town. 270 steps will lead you from the harbour to the main street of this distinct town created with colourful houses in a naked landscape. We spend around an hour to 90 minutes here before heading even longer west, to Isfjord Radio Adventure Hotel.Basecamp Isfjord Radio hosts will greet us as we arrive, and a warm 2-course lunch awaits. After warming up your fingers and toes, we can explore the area around the station and hear more about the history of the old radio station. In the afternoon, we dress back to rescue suites and return to Longyearbyen before dinner time. This trip can be combined with overnight at Isfjord Radio, ask us about an offer.
