Glacier cruise with ISFJORD-EKSPRESSEN

A wide fjord opens at 78°N on the west coast of Spitsbergen. Looking north you will see the distinct sailing mark Alkhornet. Looking south you will find Isfjord Radio Adventure Hotel, your home far away from home. Isfjorden is a gigantic fjord complex with cultural monuments from all of Svalbard’s historical periods.

Program

From Isfjord Radio Adventure Hotel at Kapp Linnè we embark on ISFJORD-EKSPRESSEN for a two-hour cruise on the north side of Isfjorden. Our destinations are Trygghamna and Ymerbukta.

In Trygghamna we will meet the eye-catching landmark Alkhornet, a large bird mountain surrounded by a lush and beautiful landscape. Historically, Trygghamna is a known as a sheltered bay. This is where seamen found rest after a rough sailing in the Arctic seas.

We continue our cruise to Ymerbukta, where the scenic Esmark glacier dives into the bay. As we float between small icebergs in the green glacial water you can hear the ice crackle.

Recommended equipment

Recommended clothing in the Arctic is always a woollen the base layer on the body, with a warm wool or flees sweater as mid-layer before topping it with a set of wind and waterproof jacket and trousers. If you tend to freeze easily, we recommend a pair of warm mid-layer pants and down jacket.

On this cruise you will spend time on deck. A warm hat, buff, steady and waterproof hiking boots, woollen socks, warm mittens wind stopper on top is your key accessories in the Arctic. In the summer the sun shines around the clock and it is smart to bring sun protection and sunglasses. When you explore in Svalbard, we recommend bringing a backpack with space for a drinking bottle, snacks and room for extra layers of clothes.

Note

In Spitsbergen, weather conditions can change quickly. We can meet heavy winds, snowstorms or thick fog, crevasses and lack of snow or ice. This means we might need to make changes to the planned route, and this might lead up us not arriving to the planned destination. It can also mean that we need to use a different transportation style or accommodation than what was described in the program. We will always do our outmost to give our guests a great experience in the Arctic, but we must be aware that characteristics of the destination.

Isfjord Radio Adventure Hotel

This 1933 built solitude outpost for radio operators doesn’t look like much from the outside, but as you enter you’ll discover a different world. The contrast between the rough landscape and the modern hotel is a sight to behold.
