day is planned to take advantage of local ice and weather conditions.
Svalbard is one of the few places on the planet to offer such a
plethora of natural and historical extravaganzas. Spend the next nine
days exploring the remote polar regions. Visit ice-covered fjords with
breathtaking mountain scenery, and glaciers crashing into the sea.
Spend time exploring pack ice edges in search of polar bears hunting
seals. At one or more of the stops, it's possible to encounter
Svalbard's arctic fox and the region's unique reindeer.
goal is to give travellers the best possible opportunity to see
wildlife in and around the Svalbard archipelago. Ice conditions
sometimes allow for sailing through the Hinlopenstretet towards the
east coast of Spitsbergen, then through Freemansundet towards the
south. However, this is not always possible.
departures will explore alternative routes to maximize time in this
remote destination. 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, the
group will cover more territory, which may allow the chance to explore
the entire archipelago. This can lead into the less explored regions of
Nordaustlandet and Kvitøya, or the continental edges where
large whales are attracted by nutrient rich upwellings.
& Spitsbergen Exploration Spitsbergen
is one of the few places on the planet that offers such a wealth and
diversity of natural and cultural history sites. During these nine
days, visit ice covered seas, fjords with breathtaking mountain
scenery, and glaciers flowing into the sea. Spend time moving through
the ice in search of polar bears hunting seals. Ivory gulls will be a
highlight for the birders. Keep a constant lookout for walrus hauled
out on ice floes or on sandy beaches. Ice permitting, visit spectacular
bird cliffs filled with thousands of murres (guillemots), as well as
kittiwakes and glaucous gulls. Shore stops will be highlighted with
tiny tundra flowers. The Expedition team will be on hand to answer any
questions about this spectacular wilderness.
Lectures and Educational Programs

the history and exploration of the Arctic.
