Speedboat to Tempelfjorden and Tuna Glacier - Poli Arctici

  • +47 91383467
  •  /  km From You

Travel by speedboat to the heart of the Sassen-Bünsow Land National Park for a chance to explore the historic trapper cabin at Fredheim and to view the massive blue front of the Tuna Glacier.

Take part in the thrilling experience of riding to the heart of the Sassen-Bünsow Land National Park! Our route takes us northeast out of Longyearbyen, and the fjords we explore are filled with wildlife and surrounded by dynamic landscapes.

After driving our boat out of the Advent Fjord and following the coast of the Isfjord, we will cross through the extensive Sassenfjord before landing at Fredheim to explore. The historic trapper cabin at Fredheim is where Hilmar Nøis famously spent 38 winters of his life!

We’ll proceed across the Tempelfjord to reach the massive blue front of Tuna Glacier. As we enjoy the beauty and solitude there, we will share a warm lunch together floating among icebergs.

The mountains in this area are formed by sedimentary layers that make stunning castle-like formations which this territory is famous for. As we travel along the rugged coastline, we will be able to see sedimentary layers which expose Svalbard’s geological history.

During the trip, we will have excellent opportunities to admire seals resting on the ice, observe birds, and maybe even spot whales. If we are fortunate, we will have a good polar bear sighting!

Join us on this eight-hour trip through Svalbard’s wilderness to visit Tempelfjord and the stunning Tuna Glacier.

If you can’t decide on what boat trip to join – you should check out our 7- or 10-day tour on sailboat:
