Ultimate Adventure

Welcome to an expedition considered the ultimate Svalbard expedition cruise. Starting in Norway´s amazing Arctic frontier outpost of Longyearbyen, you have an opportunity to discover the town’s many attractions. Next, we set sail and travel well above the 80th parallel, within 600 nautical miles from the geographical North Pole.

There will be great opportunities for exciting activities like hiking, kayaking and more on land and water during this Svalbard journey to explore outstanding national parks and some of the most spectacular highlights of the Arctic.

Living Landscape

The frozen tundra is teeming with wildlife. We will scan for seals, countless seabirds, Arctic fox, reindeer and, of course, keep a sharp eye out for the top predator - the mighty polar bear. There´s a good chance that we’ll see one of Svalbard’s polar bears – after all, there are more polar bears than people on the archipelago.

This Spitsbergren cruise features incredible natural beauty - deep fjords, mighty glaciers and pure wilderness. The Midnight Sun makes it possible to fill your days and nights with unforgettable experiences.
