Boat trip to the Russian ruins of Grumant

Wilderness and history are both central to Svalbard as we know it today. An obvious example of this is Grumant, which was the largest settlement on post-war Svalbard, but which now lies abandoned at the foot of a 500m high cliff, covered with thousands of nesting birds.

Walrus safari to Borebukta

Throughout history, the walruses on Svalbard have been subject to intense hunting. There were only a few hundred of them left in 1952, when they became a protected species. Since then, the population has recovered sharply and the walrus is finally a common sight again. Join us on a trip to the Borebukta bay, and pay a visit to these odd animals with long teeth! As with all wild animals, we cannot guarantee that we will see them, but the chances are good.

Isfjord safari to Coles Bay

With our open polar circle boats, we drive out on the fjord and set course for Coles Bay.

We pass the mining town of Grumant before turning into the sheltered Coles Bay. If the weather is good, we light a fire and have a small barbeque before returning to Longyearbyen. Welcome on board!
