Your expedition will cover western Spitsbergen as well as stunning
fjords and outlying islands to the north. From polar flora to immense
glaciers, the natural landscape here is just as varied as the wildlife.
Each expedition presents new opportunities and different weather and
ice, so there is no fixed itinerary; however, some of the places we may
visit include the 14th of July Glacier, Smeerenburg, Alkefjellet and
the Hinlopen Strait. The destinations visited will be selected for
optimum wildlife viewing with an appreciation of the history and
geology of Spitsbergen.
island offers multiple opportunities for wildlife photography. Spotting
polar bears is more likely here than almost anywhere else, as the
Svalbard archipelago is one of their preferred hunting areas. The
towering cliffs of Alkefjellet provide homes to thousands of
Brünnich’s guillemots (thick-billed murres).
across a walrus haul-out is a moment you won’t soon forget.
These giant pinnipeds of the Arctic create quite a noisy scene as each
walrus vies for a choice spot of coastline.
