Boattrip to Barentsburg & Esmarkglacier

with Polar Charter

Onboard MS Polargirl we are crossing Isfjorden to Ymerbukta and the glacier Esmark. Early in the season there will be a lot of wildlife in front of the glacier, ringed seals and bearded seals and who knows maybe the polarbear will visit the area? On our way to Barentsburg lunch is served. In Barentsburg a Russian guide will take us on a little trip and we will have some time of our own available. On our return to Longyearbyen we will pass Grumant and the birdcliff. In total we use 8-10 hours depending if we need to pick up some people out in the area. Remember warm clothing!
