Take part in the thrilling experience of riding to the heart of the Sassen-Bunsow Land National Park!
Our route travels northeast out of Longyearbyen, and the fjords we explore are filled with wildlife and surrounded by dynamic landscapes.
After driving our boat out of Advent Fjord and following the coast of Isfjord, we will cross through the extensive Sassen Fjord before landing at Fredheim to explore. The historic trapper cabin at Fredheim is where Hilmar Nøis famously spent 38 winters of his life!
We’ll proceed across Tempel Fjord to reach the massive blue front of Tuna Glacier. As we enjoy the beauty and solitude there, we will share a warm lunch together floating among icebergs.
The mountains in this area are formed by sedimentary layers that make stunning castle-like formations which this territory is famous for. As we travel along the rugged coastline, we will be able to see sedimentary layers which expose Svalbard’s geologic history.
During the trip, we will have excellent opportunities to admire seals resting on the ice, observe birds, and maybe even spot whales. If we are very fortunate, we will have a good polar bear sighting!
Join us on this eight hour trip through Svalbard’s wilderness to visit Tempel Fjord and the stunning Tuna Glacier. This is an adventure you won’t forget!
