Day 1: Arrival/Longyearbyen
After arriving with a scheduled flight at Longyearbyen´s airport, transfer to the hotel.
Overnight at hotel in Longyearbyen incl. breakfast.
Day 2: Walrus Safari to Borebukta
After breakfast you may enjoy some free time to explore the city before your excursion starts at your hotel. Start your adventure with a short transfer to the harbour. Before you board your new, closed hybrid boat, you will receive a safety instruction for the trip. Enjoy the cruise along the Isfjord and admire the beautiful Arctic landscapes and animals which might cross our way. Once we arrive at Borebukta, we will spend some time enjoying the sight of the walruses. The walrus is perhaps the most fascinating animal in the Arctic. They are curious, and if we are lucky we may experience them close up.
While in Borebukta you will also use the electric motor to get a completely silent propulsion. This gives the opportunity to experience wildlife without disturbing. A snack including hot drinks and buns fresh from the bakery are waiting for you during this trip.
You return to the pier and take the transfer back to your hotel, where your programme ends.
Please note: Walruses are wild animals, sighting is not guaranteed.
