Join us on an open RIB boat fjord safari through the bright spring in Spitsbergen. In the wilderness it's just you and surrounding mountains. Summer light revealing the treasures of the mountains and Arctic ocean. This is a half day excursion where we will keep an eye open for wildlife in the fjord.

The day starts at 10AM, when your guide picks you up from the hotel. We will quickly go through todays program, destinations and activities. Once the survival suit has been put on and zipped shut, we will head down to the harbour.

We travel across Isfjorden with open RIB. On the safari we are looking to see arctic birds, walruses, seals, belugas or bigger whales.

Important info:
Open RIB boat safari is not suitable for persons suffering from back pains. Pregnant women cannot participate on any snowmobile, dog sledding or boat safaris arranged by Basecamp Spitsbergen. Basecamp takes no responsibility to any health issues, due to neglecting this advice.

In Spitsbergen, weather conditions can change quickly. We can meet heavy winds, snowstorms or thick fog. This means we might need to make changes to the planned route, and this might lead up us not arriving to the planned destination. It can also mean that we need to use a different transportation style or accommodation than what was described in the program. We will always do our outmost to give our guests a great experience in the Arctic, but we must be aware that characteristics of the destination.
