Dinner cruise in the sunset - Hurtigruten Svalbard
The midnight sun officially leaves Svalbard in late August. The following weeks are characterized by magical sunsets during the evenings, that cast golden colors over the wild landscapes. Enjoy this scenery with a dinner on board MS Bard.
Midnight sun and silent cruising
After a long summer with midnight sun shining around the clock, the sun starts setting in late August. The sun descends further and further below the horizon every day, which creates a magical play of color. On this evening tour, we sail out on Isfjorden and cruise along the never-ending mountain landscapes. In addition to enjoying a delicious dinner in majestic surroundings, there are good chances that you will spot some wildlife. With some luck we might see a whale or two – and with some extra luck, white-beaked dolphins!
You will travel with the hybrid electric catamaran MS Bard. The engine and propellers are specially designed to minimize the noise and vibration. This not only takes you closer to nature; More importantly, the surrounding wildlife is less disturbed by our presence.
Enjoy a 3 course dinner
During the cruise you will be served a three-course dinner. The dinner is served inside, where you have a fantastic view through massive panoramic windows. Throughout the tour you are free to move on several outdoor decks as well, where you also can find comfortable seating areas.
- Carrot soup
- Svalbard cod with ratatouille and mashed potatoes
- Chocolate mousse with caramelized white chocolate
Drinks are available for purchase on board.
We offer vegetarian options on request.
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. When we approach glaciers, wildlife or settlements, it runs silently on electric propulsion. At higher speeds we use a hybrid solution, where both an electric motor and diesel engine run at the same time. In that way, we get the speed up whilst reducing the diesel consumption.
The boat has a contemporary, Norwegian design that contributes to the serene experience on board. In addition to several in- and outdoor decks, you will find a café and bar with a diverse selection of snacks and drinks.
