    Walrus safari

    May - October

    For centuries, the walruses of Svalbard were the target of many hunters and trophy collectors because of their long and valuable tusks. This led to the population becoming almost completely extinct in the 1950s. Only through various protection measures and a hunting ban was the species able to recover and today it once again populates large parts of the island.

    Lucky for us and all animal-loving visitors who can experience these unique animals on this ship tour.

    What to expect on the walrus safari

    In the morning you will be transferred directly from your accommodation in Longyearbyen to the ship. This will take you out of the harbour into calm waters, where the likelihood of encountering walruses is particularly high.

    There is usually a small snack on board. After the tour you will be taken back to your accommodation.

    This tour is offered by one of our local partner companies in English. Warm clothing is recommended.
