ice, so there is no fixed itinerary; however, some of the places we may

the Hinlopen Strait. The destinations visited will be selected for
optimum wildlife viewing with an appreciation of the history and
geology of Spitsbergen.

towering cliffs of Alkefjellet provide homes to thousands of
Brünnich’s guillemots (thick-billed murres).
