Walrus is one of the most exciting animals in the Arctic. They stay in the same area most of the summer, and love to sunbathe on the beach. One of the most known colonies close to Longyearbyen is on “Prince Karl’s Forland”. With our special designed speedboat we can easily reach this colony on a short daytrip. The boat is a comfortable, closed, dry and heated boat with a panorama view, bar and a toilet.
We leave the Icefjord and head north along the amazing west coast of Spitsbergen. Beautiful surrounding mountains and glaciers makes this an incredible trip. We arrive at Poolepynten, where we have a great chance to observe the walruses. We will also serve lunch here.
After lunch we will return to the enormous Icefjord and sail in surroundings that was formed and used by trappers and miners for centuries. This gives you a good opportunity to take photos and learn some good stories from our guide.
Better Moments have the right to change the route and destination if the weather is not good enough. We can never guaranty wildlife, however this is an well known hauling-out place for walruses.
