Kayak expedition on the Isfjord

Join us on a fantastic paddling experience in the Isfjord, Svalbard´s second longest fjord. With kayaks as our method of transport, we will make our way through one of the world’s starkest landscapes, without leaving a trace of our passage behind us. During the trip, you will experience the powerful landscape of Svalbard and its mighty glacier faces, and gain an introduction to the mining and hunting heritage of the region. The Isfjord boasts all of the elements that make Svalbard so unique, and a kayak tour here can easily be defined as an adventure. This is a fantastic area to paddle in, with soaring mountains and massive glaciers creating a frame around the fjord itself. The glaciers calve straight into the sea, creating icebergs that float around us, and inquisitive seals and thousands of birds will keep us company during our expedition.

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.
