Cruising Isfjorden on an Arctic Expedition cruise
The largest fjord system in Svalbard
Information about Cruising Isfjorden
The outer bay can be a very good area for whale watching and an area where Blue Whale can be seen for cruise ships departing or arriving at the mouth of the fjord.
Isfjorden is the largest fjord system in Svalbard with spectacular geology, such as the Devonian sediments along Dicksonfjord and Ekmanfjordat. Most cruise ships sail out the first evening, a chance to enjoy the scenery, to explore the rest of Svalbard, before coming back to consider landings and explore parts of Isfjorden on the last full day.
Interesting facts about Cruising Isfjorden
It is certainly worth staying on to do activities around Longyearbyen (from led walks outside town to dog sledging), explore further afield on daily boat trips and even camp overnight on tours. Highly recommended is to go to Pyramiden, the abandoned Russian mining settlement.
