Captain's Favourites

Welcome to a unique boat tour experience aboard MS Bard. On this trip you get to experience the very best of Svalbard's spectacular coastal landscapes. The captain sets the course according to today's wind and weather conditions - no two trips are the same!


Sightseeing with electric bike - summer

Combine comfort and efficiency on our electric bike tour, enabling you to see a range of Longyearbyen's sights while getting close to nature. The birdlife is at its best during the summer months, and silently moving through the wilderness will bring you close to the action. Electric bicycles are the perfect way to explore the sealed and unsealed roads around Longyearbyen.


Hike to Sarkofagen

What could be better than experiencing the unique Arctic landscape from a mountain top? Surrounded by magnificent outlook in all directions, this is a hike you should not miss!


Hike to Foxfonna

This beautiful hike gives you a little bit of everything: Glacier, rocky mountains, amazing views from a bird’s eye perspective – and the guide will bring a happy husky on the tour as well!


From sea to summit

This is a great hike which gives you a different view to those you can experience close to Longyearbyen. We will jump in a boat and cross the Adventfjord, arriving at Revneset after about 10 minutes.


Dogsledding on wheels

Many associate dog sledding with winter and freezing temperatures, but the dogs need exercise during the summer months as well, and our custom-built dog sledge on wheels is a perfect way for both two- and fourlegged to get out and enjoy the beautiful Svalbard scenery.


Dogsledding by the sea

Enjoy the beautiful coastal scenery whilst the guide drives the big wagon, pulled by strong sled dogs along the path to the west of Longyearbyen.


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.


Glacier safari to Tempelfjorden and Tunabreen

Join us on a boat trip to the mighty Tuna- and Von Post Glacier in the heart of the Tempelfjord. Along the way we will pass ‘Villa Fredheim’, the home of the old local legend Hilmar Nøis. We also make a stop at the beautiful bird cliff Diabas, where we will get a close view of its thousands of nesting birds. On the north side of Sassenfjorden a fantastic view of the mountain Tempelfjellet awaits. All of this whilst seeing the glacier in the distance getting closer and closer.


Isfjord Safari - A taste of Svalbard

Join us on a tour on Isfjorden with an open, steady Polarcirkel boat. This tour takes you on a journey through the fascinating history of Svalbard and Spitsbergen. After getting well dressed, we head out on the fjord. The guide will decide the exact route according to the weather conditions. We visit places with cultural monuments that may have history from both Norwegian and Soviet mining operations.


Wilderness evening

Experience the magic of being in the wilderness at 78 degrees north! Our wilderness evening at Camp Barentz is a very special experience which you really should enjoy during your stay in Longyearbyen. As we leave town and drive into the Advent Valley your anticipation increases. The mountains on either side of the valley loom over us like giants, bathed in the midnight sun or glow of the short night. What awaits us at the end of the road?


Isfjord safari to the puffins

Join us on a Puffin safari on Isfjorden with an open, steady Polarcirkel boat. After getting well dressed we head out on the fjord to search for the Arctic's own parrot, the Atlantic Puffin. The trip takes us east, further into the massive Isfjord, towards Diabas and the unique geology that creates the perfect home for our summer guests. At this small cliff we can find many breeding pairs of Atlantic Puffins and the 10 double of Brünnich’s Guillemot. Here we will experience a rich bird life up close from the water.


Boat trip to the bird cliffs

A short boat trip out into the Isfjord, between Longyearbyen and Barentsburg, you will find Fuglefjella. Above a narrow stone beach the cliffs rise from the sea, 500 metres up, nearly vertically, and the steep slopes are home to thousands of birds each summer. Join us on an exciting open boat tour which combines birds and wildlife with the island’s interesting history.


Sea fishing in the arctic

The cod has come to Svalbard! Over the last few years the Isfjord near Longyearbyen has been teeming with cod in the late summer and autumn, and a fishing tour is fun for all. You don’t need a hunter’s licence or special permissions, just a good dose of luck!
