7 hours Boat Safari to Isfjord Radio

Experience magnificent Arctic scenery, and join us on a boat safari to Hotel Isfjord Radio. The historical radio station is situated at the outermost part of Isfjord with majestic mountains overlooking the Arctic Ocean. This is the last stop before Greenland. Hop on!


Your guide picks you up from your hotel at 10:00 am. After a short brief about the coming trip and few safety instructions, it’s time to dress in the rescue suites. These suites keep you dry and warm even in rougher weather.

A short transfer to the harbour and we are ready to set on sea in our open rib-style boats. We stop once and awhile to allow you to take photos and to tell you more about the arctic wildlife, geology and history of Spitsbergen. You pass cliffs teaming with seabirds, and see cute little puffins bobbing up and down on the gentle waves. After being heavily hunted in the past decades, whales and walruses are finally returning to the arctic fjords. So, keep your eyes open!

After few hours on the sea, we dock at Isfjord Radio, where our hosts greet us. A warm 2-course lunch is waiting for us. After warming up your fingers and toes, we can explore the area around the station and hear more about the history of the old radio station. In the afternoon, we dress back to rescue suites and return to Longyearbyen before dinner time. This trip can be combined with overnight at Isfjord Radio, ask us about an offer.
