Arctic Spirit

A full day adventure in the heart of the Arctic wilderness. By open Polarcircle boats we raft into the deepest corner of Billefjorden. Here lies Adolfbukta and the majestic blue Nordenskiold glacier. The glacier is our destination and the experience is for sure one of a kind when entering this massive, frozen terrain.


The day starts early at 8AM when your guide picks you up from the hotel. We will quickly go through todays program and once the survival suit has been put on and zipped shut, we head down to the harbour. On this journey we travel across Isfjorden to Billefjorden. Enjoy the views and its wildlife on our way to the glacier destination. Keep your eyes open for birds, walruses, seals, whales, belugas or even the polar bear.

After arriving to shore in Adolfbukta, expedition lunch is served outside Nordenskiold Lodge with a great view to the glacier. This is also where we get familiar with our glacier gear and how to act when glacier hiking. It is a new experience when feeling the frozen ground under your steps. We walk up and down, explore the art of nature, take photos and if time allows, we might even put on a rope to see further down in a crevasse.

When returning to the lodge we leave our gear, enjoy a warm outdoor dinner before heading back to town. The crossing takes around three hours each way.
