With our Zodiacs, we will explore the rugged coastline and if weather conditions are favorable, make a landing.

    Day 05 -11 – Cruise to Svalbard

    Journey along an expansive archipelago of the Arctic Ocean woven between the North Pole and Norway. Svalbard is one of the last major European wilderness areas with pristine mountains, fauna, deep fjords, picturesque icebergs, and massive ice sheets.

    Our goal on this voyage is to explore the eastern and least-visited sections of Svalbard’s breath taking and the dramatic Spitsbergen. Once there, we will locate wildlife and spend the maximum amount of time possible hiking on the tundra. Spitsbergen is home to approximately 5,000 polar bears and we hope to encounter a good number of them during our trip. Our flexible itinerary allows us to take advantage of favorable ice and weather conditions. We will search for walruses, seals, reindeer, Arctic foxes and polar bears. Shore walks and Zodiac landings will bring us up close to the mystical settings and passing icebergs.

    Meals included: Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner.

    Day 12 – Longyearbyen/Oslo
