Spitsbergen Explorer

Explore the remarkable Svalbard Archipelago in Norway in 24 hour daylight

Sail beyond the Arctic Circle to 80 degrees north, around the island of Spitsbergen, where snow-draped mountains rise high above the pack ice. It is the wildlife that makes this expedition so intoxicating: huge 200,000-strong colonies of Little auk thronging the cliffs and shores, kittiwakes next to the cobalt glaciers, walrus wallowing in the shallows, Arctic foxes, whales and, of course, one of the ultimate wildlife sightings, the mighty Polar bear, frequently seen hunting in its frosty backyard on ice floes.
