Day 3: Boat Safari in the Isfjord

After a hearty breakfast, it’s time to board the boat for an exciting safari to the west side of the fjord. The route takes us along the eastern coastline and across the Isfjorden at Kapp Starostin before heading towards the mighty cliffs of Alkehornet, inhabited by thousands of nesting birds. Upon arrival at Trygghamna, a nice expedition lunch is served at the beach. Then, can take a closer look at the area before boarding the safari boat and heading for the fantastic Esmark Glacier at Ymerbukta. If we’re lucky, we might catch a glimpse of whales, seals, or the “king of the Artic”, the polar bear. In the evening, a wonderful three-course dinner awaits us at Isfjord Radio. Spend another night at Isfjord Radio.

Day 4: Coastline Trek Return to Longyearbyen

Today, you can choose to either relax and enjoy the morning at Isfjord Radio or join your guide for a hike along the beautiful coastline. During the leisurely coastline trek, your guide will entertain you with stories about the hard life of early settlers and tell you about the unique geology, flora, and wildlife in the area. Later, enjoy a warm lunch at Isfjord Radio before returning in the afternoon to Longyearbyen, where you will spend the night.

Day 5: Meet the Huskies and Departure

You can’t leave the Arctic without first trying a typical Arctic activity like dog-sledding. But this is no ordinary dog-sledding tour—this is husky safari on wheels! In the morning, your guide picks you up and takes you to the kennel at the Trapper’s Station in Bolterdalen, where around 90 cheerful Alaskan huskies eagerly await your arrival. After a short lesson on the principles of “mushing”, it’s your turn to harness your team of huskies and go for a ride. After the tour, you are returned to town with time to freshen up before your departure. In the afternoon, take a taxi or the airport bus to Longyear Airport for your return flight to Oslo, from where you will continue onwards to your final destination.
