Wildlife Boat Tour

About the activity

Discover Svalbard’s unique nature and wildlife during an exciting boat trip!

Discover Svalbard’s unique nature and wildlife during an exciting boat trip!

The Svalbard archipelago is located far up in the north, mid-way between Norway and the North Pole, and the island is world-famous for its awe-inspiring nature, wildlife and glaciers. During this exciting boat adventure, you will be taken far into the Arctic wilderness on a tour of this region's most incredible features.

Taking place in the season of the Midnight Sun, this trip will take advantage of the magical evening light to explore the beautiful Isfjord. The closed and heated RIB boats ensure your travels are safe and comfortable no matter the weather. A hot homemade bowl of soup will be served on board as you take in the many sights of Svalbard island's coast.

Significant migrations of fauna to this region have been observed over the years. Over the course of your journey around the fjord, you have the potential to spot polar bears and their cubs, seals sunbathing on the ice, humpback whales, and even blue whales! Throughout, Arctic birds will accompany you on the cliffs around us, including the charismatic Atlantic puffins. Between May and August, you will stop at one of the cliffs around the fjord which are used by Svalbard's seabirds as a nesting spot.

You are going to pass breathtaking glacier fronts in the northern part of Isfjorden. The ice is constantly changing as small bits crack off into the fjord - this is known as 'calving'. Seize this unique opportunity to explore Svalbard's mineral and biological wonders by boat for an unforgettable experience in the Arctic Circle!

We did the wild life Safari boat tour and it was excellent. We saw a walrus, minke whales, beluga whales and numerous bird species. Bjorn and Marcos were amazing. They made an effort to make sure we could see as much as possible. Marcos was very thorough and knowledgeable about the area and animals. I highly recommend taking a tour with Bjorn and Marcos!!!

We had a great boat ride on rough waves. We were worried we wouldn’t see anything but we finally saw some walruses. The guides were kind and the soup was delicious!

The trip was fantastic. We spent a lot of time on a boat and we found good weather. There was a possibility to go out from a boat cabin to take some pictures and then come inside to warm up. During the trip we also tasted very delicious soup provided by the organizer.
