Expedition Date: 07 July 2021

Revel in the diversity of the Svalbard Archipelago and sail into the kingdom of the polar bear. Explore the coastline against a backdrop of spectacular glacier covered peaks. Discover deep fjords in the west; mysterious, fossil-rich desert plains in the east; and best of all, seals and whales in the Arctic pack ice. This voyage offers the best chance for seeing reindeers and polar bears, and features wildflower walks across sweeping tundra, trapper camps and historic sites. On foot and by Zodiac, visit abandoned whaling settlements, search for walrus, arctic fox and reindeer and observe millions of migratory birds, including little auks, guillemots and puffins.
