About

Join a unique boat trip through the beautiful coastal landscapes of Svalbard. With the hybrid-electric catamaran MS Bard, an exciting and more environmentally friendly boat trip awaits you. The route takes you through breathtaking landscapes, to Billefjorden and the glacier front of Nordenskiöldbreen.

Svalbard is known for its “Arctic silence”, and with the silent hybrid-electric catamaran you will experience this in the best possible way. The boat is emission-free when it runs on electricity, and we are very proud to be able to introduce this type of transport here in the vulnerable Arctic waters.

The conditions in Svalbard change a lot throughout the year, and a trip under the midnight sun in May will be different from when the polar night approaches in October. Whatever the season, you can expect unique experiences in beautiful Svalbard nature. Early in the season, parts of the Billefjord may still be covered in ice. Using only the electric motor, we will then silently follow the ice edge where the opportunity to see wildlife is great! Here we will also enjoy the beautiful glacier front of Nordenskiöldbreen. In addition, we will see the ghost town Pyramiden from a distance, and drive by the bay Skansbukta.

 

Information regarding tours with any form of connection to Russian state-owned companies in Svalbard
Owing to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine and the related violations of international law and human rights, an extraordinary general meeting in Visit Svalbard has decided that all products, tours, services or other offers with any form of connection to the Russian state-owned companies in Svalbard, will be removed from Visit Svalbard’s platforms.
This specific activity does not have any economic ties to Russian state-owned companies in Svalbard, and is therefore still available on visitsvalbard.com.
For more information, see the media release from Svalbard Tourism Council and Visit Svalbard: https://en.visitsvalbard.com/visitor-information/news/trust-arcticugol-excluded-from-the-svalbard-tourism-council
