Enjoy the golden glow of the sun and explore the best of Svalbard: the sight of glaciers, dramatic landscapes and the graceful walruses that lies in colonies on the beach. An unforgettable day in the Arctic fjords awaits!

In front of us, in the narrow fjord, we can glimpse the impressive glaciers and ice forms towering high in front of the surrounding mountain peaks. A panoramic view of a white mass with an almost baby-blue sheen where the glacier has calved, rises several meters up from the frozen fjord. The atmosphere is still and strange, suddenly interrupted by the sight and sound of the wildlife, both on land and at sea. So, remember to keep an eye out and bring binoculars.

Walrus colonies
Walruses became protected animals half a century ago. When this happened, the population was down to only a couple of hundred animals, after 350 years of hunting. In the recent years, the walrus has come back to its old colonies, and we have the possibility to visit one of these colonies with our boat.

We go to Borebukta on the other side of the Ice fjord (Isfjorden) to catch a glimpse of these wonderful creatures. Our open RIB-boat has a panorama view of the surroundings. As we arrive at the walrus' site, we will have some warm toddy, coffee and cookies, while looking for wildlife.
