The day starts early at 08:00, when our guide pick you up from your hotel. We will go shortly through the days plan and activities. We will first dress up to flotation suits before heading to the harbour. We will travel over Isfjorden all the way to Billefjorden and Adolfbuta with our open RIB‐boat. There is plenty of wildlife around the fjord at this time of the year, so we have chances to see some arctic birds, walruses, belugas or even the polar bear.
Nordenskiöld lodge lies right inside the glacier moraine with a fantastic view right towards the bright blue glacier. The cabin is well hidden in the rough moraine. You can feel the arctic nature and silence around you when you are sitting on the cabin terrace. After arriving to Basecamp Nordenskiöld in Adolfbukta,
After arriving to shore of Adolfbukta, we will enjoy expedition lunch right in front of the magnificent Nordenskiöld glacier. We will go through a short instruction of the glacier walking and the safety issues and after lunch we will gather all necessary equipment and head out to the close by glacier.
We will hike up and down on the glacier, learn how to use our equipment and enjoy the magnificent ice around us. After the adventurous trip on the glacier we will enjoy warm expedition meal while admiring the glacier and wonderful arctic nature around us. Luckily we have mid night sun whole day and night so we can enjoy the long adventure in peace.
