expedition begins in the most Northerly town in the world,
Longyearbyen. In the afternoon we embark our expedition vessel at the
port of Longyearbyen. After an introduction from our expedition leader
and a safety briefing from the Captain, we set sail out through the
majestic Adventfjord. As Longyearbyen disappears astern, we wave
goodbye to civilisation for the next 9 days. As we sail out through the
Isfjord we will spend time on deck watching for the whales that
frequent the waters.
2-3: Prins Karls Foreland & Sea Ice
the morning we approach Prins Karls Foreland, an uninhabited island of
beautiful scenery off the west coast of Spitsbergen. We will drop
anchor and launch the Zodiac landing craft to go ashore and visit an
area where walruses haul out. In the afternoon we will do a wilderness
hike. We frequently see Svalbard reindeer here. If the conditions allow
we will sail up to the edge of the sea ice which extends all the way to
the North Pole. In calm conditions, we will cruise the edge of the sea
ice keeping a sharp lookout for wildlife including polar bears that
hunt on the ice.
4-6: Exploring the North-West Coast
voyage we undertake to Svalbard involves an element of exploration. A
part of our Svalbard experience is to have a few days with no set
itinerary. Under the guidance of our expedition leader, we will work
with the weather and sea ice conditions to show you the best that the
north-west coast has to offer. Over the next 3 days we will cruise
around the coast with regular shore landings to visit different natural
and historical sites including glaciers, do wilderness hikes and spend
some time enjoying the raw nature of the Arctic.
7-8: Lilliehook Fjord, Kongsfjorden and Ny-Alesund
we sail back south we explore the area in and Kongsfjorden. Expect
majestic glaciers, some of Svalbard’s most beautiful fjords
and scenery from the decks. Here we encounter one of
Svalbard’s most breathtaking sites, the Lilliehook glacier,
one of Svalbard’s largest calving glacier fronts. We will
spend time here witnessing nature’s beauty in its rawest form
with the option of doing a wilderness hike to a neighbouring fjord. The
following day we will do a short sailing to the scientific community of
Ny-Alesund, the most northerly settlement on earth. Here there are some
interesting historical sites and a great museum.
the morning we arrive back at the port of Longyearbyen. After breakfast
we say our goodbyes after making new friends and sharing a wonderful
above itinerary is a guide only. A part of any Arctic adventure is the
flexibility to take advantage of the weather and ice conditions. Our
expedition leader will make sure you see as much a possible.
