The Magdalenefjord is located north of Ny Alesund on the west coast of Spitsbergen island. Spitsbergen is the largest island of Svalbard archipelago. We were almost 80 degrees north latitude. This fjord is wide so our ship was able to turn around 360 degrees for better view of the glaciers. Our ship Prinsendam is not large, but large ship can... More

Waking up in your cabin on the cruise ship, going on your balcony and seeing this wonderful and breathtaking Fjord is a wonderful feeling! Definitely a highlight from our cruise to Norway!

You will not blieve your eyes when you see 4 gletsjers coming togheter in one fjord under the midsummernight sun. To live this view in this particular light is a priviledge. The best reason why we shloud save it from disappearing by the global warming.

Anywhere else on earth, Magdalena Fjord would be stunning and even in Svalbard it is an outstandingly beautiful fjord which is over deepened at the end where there is the confluence of a number of really spectacular glaciers. What made it really special for us was just how close we could get to the ice fronts and how we could... More

This is the most spectacular fjord with its snow covered peaks and blue glaciers. My favourite of all.

This fjord is situated a half days boattrip north of Longyearbyen, Svalbard. Here you can see the glaziers and its blue ice. This wonderful little place also had a graveyard with about 300 graves of whalefishermen. The Norwegian police is guarding the graveyard every summer! If you are lucky you might see polar bears here!!

This fjord was listed in Lonely Planet's top 10 Norweigian fjords. I did not plan on going here whilst in Svalbard, as it's quite away from the main/only tourist town of Longyearbyn, but turns out it was a stop on my cruise with G Adventures. Honestly, ALL of Svalbard is breath-takingly pristine. Since this was later in our cruise, we... More
