Ice Condition Disclaimer.
Early in the season, the ice conditions in Isfjorden and Billefjorden may only allow us to observe Pyramiden from the boat. In such event, the Fjordcruise will follow the ice edge, with a unique chance of wildlife sightings, and magnificent nature views. 
This will not affect the price. Nor does it give a reason for any type of refund, fully or partially. See our full Terms and Conditions HERE

Description

We set course towards Billefjorden and the Nordenskiöld 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 birdcliff of Diabas. And if we are reall lucky, a Polar Bear might be roaming around by the glacier.
The guide on board the ship will tell about the history of Longyearbyen, glaciers, arctic wildlife, and possibly also a “polar tall tale” or two…

If weather and ice-conditions allow, we will dock in Pyramiden, where the Russian guide is waiting. Armed with a rifle for polar bear protection, he greets us with a heartily: “Welcome to Russia!”
In Pyramiden polar bears might roam the streets, so it is important to stay together as a group while we explore the town together with the guide.

On our way back to Longyearbyen, we will pass by Skansbukta, where the guide will tell us about the tragic happenings at Svenskhuset (The Swedish house)
