alkehornet birdcliff and esmark Glacier

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 our Polarcirkle boat for a five-hour open RIB boat safari 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 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. 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.
