“Fantastic adventure!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2013

In Svalbard we had different activities, but this is the one we will never forget. We were in 6 on this boat, heading toward this beautiful glacier. We could observe as well some seals and birds. The trip is really exciting but at the same time you have always the feeling to be safe, so you may experience a kind of "safe wilderness". The guide, Børre, was giving interesting information about the place and the past happenings. He was transmitting perfectly his great passion for the islands and their nature and all the possible outdoor activities you may try. The conclusion is that we want to come back next april for experiencing the winter activities...
