Are you ready for an Arctic adventure? This is the expedition for you, if you want to experience the wild nature of the Arctic, far away from people, traffic and mobile coverage, close to the elements. The tour takes you through the beautiful Krossfjord, filled with calving glaciers, impressive bird cliffs and teeming life in the sea, which combine to create the most unique wilderness experience. Our expedition starts and ends onboard the historical MS Nordstjernen, which takes us up to 80 degrees North, and then to and from the Kongsfjord for our kayak adventure!
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.
The distance between civilisation and the wilderness is short, especially by speed boat. Experience it on this tour to Von Postbreen. At the head of the Tempelfjord you will find this glacier, together with its surging brother, Tunabreen, and also see its nearest neighbours - the mighty mountain ‘Tempelet’, and the trapper’s cabin Villa Fredheim - all in the realm of the polar bear.
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.
