About

Enjoy one of the very best experiences in Svalbard: combining beautiful glacier fronts and perhaps the most unique species in Svalbard, the walrus. With its large tusks and distinctive appearance, it is an Arctic favorite. They may not be graceful on land, but they are amazing swimmers!

In Borebukta, the glacier front is mirrored in the surface of the water. It is a majestic view, and we will enjoy it as long as possible, as we eat our lunch on shore in front of the wall of ice.

After lunch we leave the walrus and return to Longyearbyen. The trip across the fjord takes about 1 hour and is just long enough to relax and take in the wonderful experiences of the day.
