We did the canoe activity close to Svaybreen glacier in Isfjord. It was wonderful and also our guide, Nora was very good and experienced.

Simply amazing. Where to start? The crew - were incredible, from the team’s guide to captain to the owner. Fortunate to have gone on a variety of trips from Catch of the day twice to bespoke trips for production. Each trip was unique and was fortunate to have seen and filmed six different types of wildlife! The wildlife spotting as came with a lot of luck but the team try their best to share what Svalbard has to offer! Thanks Again everyone involved!

I joined the Walrus safari with Virgil as guide and the russian pilot, sorry I don't remember the name :) The weather seemed very good in Isfjorden, but Virgil told us that the fjord currents could have been strong leaving Isfjorden, so they preferred to stay in the fjord instead of heading to Prince Karl’s Forland. We saw many birds in our way to the Borebreen glacier, we stayed in front of that for lunch (tasty sandwiches) and after a couple of hours we moved to a little peninsula close to the glacier where there where two nice walruses waiting for us :) So Virgil and the pilot let us disembark by R.I.B. and we could stay 30 meters far from the lazy walruses to take many pictures. After walking around some minutes to enjoy the beautiful view (and to see one more walrus swimming) we started our way back to Longyearbyen in the middle of the fjord without further stops. I really enjoyed the experience, my first time I saw the walruses, disembarking by RIB, staying in front and close to that impressive glacier. Also Virgil and the pilot were were nice and informative. The only disappointment is that I would have preferred to go to Prince Karl’s Forland, as stated in the program in the website, also to have a taste of west coast outside Isfjorden were all the other excursions go. There are cheaper walrus safari excursions that stay in Isfjorden. Then I guess we spent too much time in front of the glacier.

Great tours with Better Moments! Our guide, Matts, knew very well the area, was helpful and knowledgeable and could tell us many good stories and answer the questions from all passengers. He had a safe trip in all aspects. We would definitely recommend Better Moments.

Went on a boat trip to see the walruses in Svalbard. The name of the trip was: “To tonn lykke, Hvalrossafari.” The lunch we got was very good. The captain was clever with the boat and the guide Virgil Reglioni was very service- minded, patient and made the trip extra worthwhile because of his huge knowledge and engagement. And his photos is marvellous. Recommend this experience.
