Skipper's Choice - explore Isfjorden by RIB-boat - Poli Arctici
Welcome aboard! Venture out into Northern Isfjord with our experienced Skipper, who will choose the day's route depending on recent wildlife sightings and weather conditions.
We will take you into the wild with our speedboat, and our skipper chooses the route based on daily conditions and recent wildlife sightings around the northern Isfjord area. Our goal is to share our favourite areas of the Isfjord with you and maximize our chances for wildlife sightings.
Our route leads us out of Longyearbyen towards the northern coast of the Isfjord. This area is less frequently visited and is rich with wildlife and surrounded by dynamic scenery.
We’ll visit the massive blue ice front of the Wahlenberg Glacier and enjoy the beauty and solitude there floating among icebergs at a safe distance.
During the trip, we will have excellent opportunities to admire seals resting on the ice, observe birds, and maybe even spot whales and walrus. If we are fortunate, we may even have a good polar bear sighting!
This trip has many options, and we will decide together as a group what to do depending on weather and sea conditions, as well as the interests of the group.
Our speed boat “Stefi” is custom built for navigating the polar environment. Its partially enclosed cabin offers shelter and warmth even during cold days or rough seas.
