Join us on a beautiful evening trip out on the Icefjord with MS Bard. The midnight sun shines beautifully in the evenings and makes this a magical trip. There is no point in going to bed early when you are in Longyearbyen in the summer, and this is a perfect evening trip. The sea is full of wildlife and here the birds will fly along the boat. If you are extra lucky you will also get to experience whales.

MS Bard - A new way to experience Svalbard

MS Bard is a brand new hybrid-electric catamaran specially designed for polar regions. The ship is made with a focus on providing unique experiences, while having a minimal impact on the environment. The boat is made of recycled and recyclable aluminum which makes it energy efficient and light.
The boat has large panoramic windows that allow you to enjoy the breathtaking views also if you wish to sit inside. In addition, there are three large decks where you get close to the sea and can admire the Arctic nature.

Midnight sun

Between April and August there is midnight sun on Svalbard. In the evenings the sun shines weaker than during the day and gives a beautiful, calm orange light. The mountains and surroundings glow with the sun and create an incredibly beautiful interplay.
