Apparently it was a lucky day. A very sunny day and during the cruise to Billefjorden & Nordenskiöld Glacier we spotted: Puffins, Little Auks, Northern Fulmars, Minke Whales, Belugas, and Walruses. The landscape and its endless views are spectacular and the hybrid catamaran is very comfortable. Our guide had a ton of knowledge about the Marine Mammals and Marine Birds and their surroundings & habbits, and was a very animated storyteller. The crew was very friendly and helpfull.

It was an absolutely amazing trip. We were fortunate to be sharing the hybrid catameran with only 8 fellow travelers so it was a totally relaxed trip. We were lucky enough to see a family of polar bears eating a whale. Just impressive. In addition, smaller lectures were held again and again during the trip. The staff was very friendly.

Absolut empfehlenswerte Tour. Die Tiere und die Eisstücke im Wasser haben mir sehr gut gefallen. Der Guide namens Fred war auch super. Er hat mit großer Begeisterung über die Region erzählt. :D

Great tour with amazing views. Competently explained and accompanied. The food was good, the drinks available were perfectly adequate. A total of 6 hours at the highest level. Any time!

Very nice boat and comfortable for a rainy day. We didn't see that much wildlife unfortunately, but the scenery was great and the crew was wonderful.
