Our Polarcirkel boats

adventurous boat rides

Travel with us to Nordenskiold Lodge or Isfjord Adventure Hotel by open RIB boats. A ride with Kapp Linné, Tempel or Nordenskiold is an adventure on its own as you fly on the open sea, from wave to wave, passing bird cliffs, seals, walrus or even polar bears. The wind on your face, howling in your ears. It is a feeling of freedom and the adrenalin is pumping.

From June to September the only way to travel to our remote outposts is by boat. When you choose an open Polarcirkel boat you get transport and adventure at the same time. With sea spray and crisp arctic winds in your face you get as close to the elements as possible as you fly from wave to wave.

We will you equip you well and teach you all you need to know for a thrilling ride. The Basecamp suites will keep you warm. The Basecamp guides will keep you safe.

Join us on an adventure to Barentsburg. The first impression is of being transported back in time to Soviet Russia; the town centre even features a statue of Lenin. A single road cuts through the small town. Old houses, dating back to the beginning of the 20th century, stand on both sides. The facades are a bit crooked and ramshackle. Some houses visibly bear the weight of history. In this place you can smell the past centuries in the air.
