Duration: 1 week to 2 weeks
Approx Costs: 2000 to 3000+ £ Pound (UK)

From close-up encounters with icebergs and glaciers to the region’s plentiful wildlife, this is a voyage of non-stop highlights in the Arctic region.

Always on the lookout for exotic animals, you’ll explore this landscape not only by ship but also on foot and via Zodiac. Roaming polar bears, lounging seals, grazing reindeer, and colonies of birds all co-exist in this harsh land we dare only to explore a few months of the year.

 

Itinerary

 

Day 1 Arrive Longyearbyen

Embark the MS Expedition in the afternoon and depart Longyearbyen in the evening.

 

Day 2-7 Svalbard & Spitsbergen

Visit ice-covered fjords with breathtaking mountain scenery and glaciers. Spend time exploring the natural wilderness searching for polar bears hunting seals. At one or more of the stops, you may have the opportunity to see arctic foxes or Svalbard's unique reindeer. Our goal is to give travellers the best possible opportunity to see wildlife in and around the Svalbard archipelago. Depending on ice conditions we will explore different areas of the archipelago. Early-season voyages often provide the greatest opportunity to see large ice floes in the Arctic pack ice, which usually means excellent wildlife viewing. Later in the season, you'll cover more territory, which may allow you to explore the entire archipelago. This can lead you into the less explored regions of Nordaustlandet and Kvitøya, or the continental edges where large whales are attracted by nutrient rich upwellings.

 

Day 8 Depart Longyearbyen

On departure day, we will offer transfers to the Longyearbyen airport for all passengers with flights scheduled after 4am.
