Full description

Discover stunning views of Isfjord and look for local wildlife on this cruise aboard an eco-friendly hybrid-electric catamaran. Spread out on two indoor decks with panoramic windows or brave the elements on one of the three outdoor decks.

Be picked up from the comfort of selected hotels in Svalbard and hop aboard a climate-controlled van. Take in views of the countryside as you transfer to the charming town of Longyearbyen. Hop aboard the ship MS Bard and begin your fjord adventure. 

Listen to a short safety briefing from your guide. Sail along with no set destination on a trip that is always unique. Look for fulmar birds, whales, and seals. Have the chance to watch the captain at work on the above deck. 

Lave Longyearbyen behind and head into the Isfjord and the captain will decide the destination based on wind, waves, and wildlife. Keep your energy up with the option to purchase a selection of snacks and drinks from the onboard café and bar. 

Head back to Longyearbyen at the end of your cruise and board the bus which will return you to your pickup point.
