We set course towards Barentsburg and the Esmark glacier. With vast opportunities to experience the arctic wildlife, keep your eyes open and look for whales, seals, and a plethora of birds by the bird cliffs. And if we are really lucky, a Polar Bear might be roaming around by the glacier.
The guide on board the ship will talk about the history of Longyearbyen, glaciers, arctic wildlife, and possibly also a “polar tall tale” or two…

We will disembark in Barentsburg, where the Russian guide is waiting to take us on a guided tour of the town. It may be time to explore a little on your own before the boat takes us back to Longyearbyen. In Barentsburg you will find a post office, a souvenir shop as well as a local brewery.

On our way back to Longyearbyen, we will pass by the abandoned Russian coal mining installations in Coles Bay and Grumant, as well as making a slow pass by the bird cliffs.

We look forward to welcome you aboard, and we appreciate the opportunity to assist you in writing a new entry in your travel diary!
