The world’s northernmost fjord-cruise with MS Langøysund and MS Billefjord

Write a new entry in your travel diary!

We set out crossing Isfjorden towards Ymer Bay, and the Esmark Glacier. With vast opportunities to experience the arctic wildlife, keep your eyes open and look for whales, seals and a plethora of birds. And if we are really lucky, a Polar Bear might be roaming around by the glacier.
The guide on board the ship will tell about the history of Longyearbyen, glaciers, arctic wildlife, and possibly also a “polar tall tale” or two…

A warm lunch is served by the glacier
Marinated whale meat, baked salmon and pork rib, is on the menu. Served with a pasta salad, rice and our own locally baked bread. A vegetarian option is available at the time of reservation, for an additional fee of NOK 50,- per person.

We will dock in Barentsburg, where the English speaking Russian guide is waiting to take us on a tour of the city.  If time allows, it will be possible to explore a little on your own, before the ship takes us back to Longyearbyen again. In Barentsburg you will find a post office, a souvenir shop as well as a local brewery.

On our way back to Longyearbyen, we will pass by the abandoned Russian coal mining installations in Coles Bay and Grumant, as well as making a slow pass by the bird cliffs.
