Overview
Details

Walruses became protected animals for half a century ago. When this happened, the population was 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.

Walruses "dyreliv" became protected animals for half a century ago. When this happened, the population was 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. 

You can now experience these majestic animals in their natural habitat. 

Join our boat trip to Prins Karls Forland Island, located between Isfjorden and Kongsfjorden. Our boat has a panorama view to the surroundings, its warm and has comfortable seats. As we arrive at the walrus site, we will enjoy a lunch and warm drinks. If the weather permits, we will go ashore. 

If we have time for another stop on our way back to Longyearbyen, we will stop at one of the many glacier fronts dipping into Isfjorden.

Warm lunch is included.

Note: Not suitable if pregnant or suffering from back problems. The boat may not also carry passengers under 14 years unless any such passenger is accompanied by an adult.
