    Destination guide
  • Day 3-5


    North West Spitsbergen National Park

    21 Jun 2019 to 23 Jun 2019

    The North West Corner is scattered with islands, fjords and beaches. The ocean here can be full of drifting ice, especially in the early season and the frozen landscape changes constantly.

    You might visit Kongsfjorden, considered one of the most beautiful fjord areas in Spitsbergen, with mighty glaciers calving icebergs into the sea, framed by stunning mountain formations. In the Magdalenafjorden and Gravneset areas, you will hopefully have the chance to swim and earn a rare Arctic swimming certificate. There will also be exhilarating hiking and kayaking opportunities, featuring the nearby Gully Glacier. You may also get to see the enormous Monaco Glacier in Liefdefjord, and enjoy a chance to cruise in small boats

  • Day 6-8


    Eastern Svalbard Nature Reserves & South Spitsbergen National Park

    24 Jun 2019 to 26 Jun 2019

    Eastern Svalbard boasts the highest population of polar bears on the archipelago! If conditions allow, you will sail to Isflakbukta on Phippsøya, part of Sjuøyane (Seven Islands), which are located at the far north of the Svalbard archipelago. Thousands upon thousands of seabirds mate here, while walrus dive for clams in the bays.bays. You will also aim to cruise in Sorgfjorden, which borders the North East Spitsbergen Nature Reserve, and was the site of a famous 17th Century battle between whalers.

    If the weather is favourable, you may wish to join a hike in beautiful Eolsneset or enjoy tender boat cruising in the Hinlopen Strait area. Another part of your journey may be a visit to Torellneset, which is an excellent place to spot walruses sunning themselves on the flat beach. You will continue on to Edgeøya, the third-largest island in the Svalbard archipelago.On its western shores, the landscape is largely un-glaciated, unlike most other places on the east side of Spitsbergen. Kapp Lee is a wonderful site where you will find cultural heritage from all eras of human exploration of Svalbard.

    You will make your way to the southern cape and the southernmost tip of Spitsbergen, where Hornsund hosts a wonderfully varied landscape and geology. Ice being pushed into the fjord attracts polar bears that hunt on the floes, so you may spot some of these magnificent predators

  • Day 9


    The Isfjord

    27 Jun 2019

    Spend today exploring the Isfjord, the most prominent fjord system on Svalbard. The immense U-shaped valleys, carved out of the mountains by the giant glaciers that covered the area some ten thousand years ago are home to large populations of the endemic Svalbard Reindeer
