Join Hurtigruten Svalbard on a boat tour with a hybrid-electric catamaran. With this new vessel, an exciting and more environmentally friendly boat trip awaits you. The tour takes you through breathtaking landscapes, to Billefjorden and the glacier Nordenskiöldbreen.
Please note: At the moment, this trip focuses mainly on nature experiences on the way to and around Pyramiden. The boat does not dock. We reserve the right to change this with short notice.
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.

Close to nature in an environmentally friendly way
The boat MS Bard has the greenest technology available on the market. 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 Arctic waters.
Unique nature experiences
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. By the use of 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.
