Svalbard / Spitsbergen

Remote, mysterious, extreme and located on the southern fringe of the frozen Arctic Ocean, Spitsbergen is a land forged by ice, wind and sea. Spend time exploring the natural wilderness searching for polar bears hunting seals. Our expedition style landings take you close to the wildlife, the ghost towns of early whaling stations, remote mining towns and spectacular fjords and icebergs.

The Patel family about Svalbard: The feeling of crossing the line of 80° North and arriving at Mofen island whilst experiencing midnight Sun was the one out of this world.

THROUGH THE NORTH ATLANTIC FROM SCOTLAND TO SVALBARD
North Atlantic Expedition
There are few wilder, more magnificent and untouched places than the Arctic Islands of the North Atlantic! And no ships more suited than Ocean Atlantic for such a voyage. Join us for an early summer's cruise from Aberdeen to the lush green Shetland isles, the Faroe Islands small capital Tórshavn and the North Atlantic to the Arctic islands of Jan Mayen and Svalbard. We will travel north along with the migrating birds, and hopefully spot the polar bears hunting from the sea ice in the 24-hour daylight.

The cruise starts in Aberdeen on the Scottish East Coast. Here we embark Albatros Expedition's vessel, the comfortable Ocean Atlantic, which is our home for the next 11 days. Our first stop is cozy Lerwick on “main” Shetland, then we venture further north to Tórshavn on the Faroe Islands. After a day at sea spotting for seabirds and whales we reach the enigmatic and isolated island of Jan Mayen with its looming 2,200-meter high volcano of Beerenberg. We travel north with the spring and 24-hour daylight until we reach the snow-covered mountains of Svalbard. Sea ice will still cover many fjords, but with an ice class of 1B we are safe on board Ocean Atlantic. From the panorama deck we hope to spot the iconic polar bear on the ice and feel the Arctic nature close to us as we cruise in our smaller Zodiac vessels. We venture further north into Kongsfjorden and Ny Ålesund, to Smeerenburg and hopefully as far as Yttre Norskøya in the far North west corner of Spitsbergen Island. Weather and ice conditions will often dictate the course, but each landing with Zodiac-boats will still be unique and adventurous.

The cruise does not have any special requirements for you as a participant, but it is assumed that you are in good shape, agile and good on your legs. Some landings will be made with the ship's Zodiac rubber boats, and this requires some agility to get in and out of. The journey takes place in the mild spring and early summer, and we expect calm sea, sun and temperatures of 10 to 15 degrees.

After 11 fantastic days we will disembark in Longyearbyen for your homebound flight.

ARCTIC WILDLIFE SAFARI
WEST SPITSBERGEN & POLAR ICE EDGE
Not only a frozen wilderness, Spitsbergen is a place of precarious beauty and a stronghold of endangered Arctic wildlife.
This remarkable expedition departs from the far northern settlement of Longyearbyen on the Norwegian Arctic island of Spitsbergen in the famed Svalbard archipelago. We explore the island's northwestern coast, home to dramatic mountain scenery, tidewater glaciers, and some of the Arctic's best wildlife viewing opportunities.
On this voyage we also venture to the jumbled edge of the north-polar ice cap in search of polar bears stalking their prey. Here, at the dynamic boundary between implacable ice and bountiful sea, we have a rare opportunity to experience raw nature and incredible events hardly ever seen.
