Vårsolbukta Arctic Expedition Cruise

Witness thousands of seabirds and their sneaky predators

Information about Vårsolbukta

On the NW side of Bellsund, this is a huge Little Auk colony amongst the extensive

scree on the side of the mountain ridges above the landing beach.

It can be a challenge to get to, and to scout, in case of bears, but it is a stunning wildlife spectacle with thousands of Little Auks wheeling around and calling (sounding like little trolls!). The activity also attracts Arctic Foxes and the tundra, with all the nutrients leaching down, is superb for plants, and to look out for geese and Reindeer.

Along the shore there is the chance of Beluga.

Interesting facts about Vårsolbukta

There are also the remains of huts from the Northern Exploration company. Sometimes

bears, or the weather (it is quite exposed), prevents a landing, and the nearby narrow fjord can be popular for a Zodiac cruise to explore the narrow glacial front of Fridtjovbreen.
