Eastern Svalbard Nature Reserves Sun 05 Jul 2020

itinerary summary image

Eastern Svalbard boasts the highest population of polar bears on the archipelago – and there is a good chance of spotting one on this journey! The ocean is full of drifting ice and the frozen landscape changes constantly. This is true wilderness, so the captain will work with the elements to decide where you can safely land or sail. Hurtigruten aim to cross 80º N, and possibly head even further north to Sjuøyane (Seven Islands), at the extreme of the Svalbard archipelago. You may also sail east of Nordaustlandet to Kvitøya, before continuing towards Edgeøya, the third-largest island in the Svalbard archipelago

Exploring Spitsbergen

South Spitsbergen National Park & Bellsund Area Wed 08 Jul 2020

Exploring Spitsbergen

Make your way to the southern cape and the southernmost tip of Spitsbergen, where Hornsund hosts a wonderfully varied landscape and geology. Ice pushed into the fjord early in the season attracts polar bears that hunt on the floes, so with a bit of luck you may spot some of these magnificent predators

Isfjord

The Isfjord Fri 10 Jul 2020

Isfjord

Spend the day exploring the Isfjord, the most prominent fjord system on Svalbard. In the inner parts of Isfjorden, the landscape is forever changing. 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 Svalbard reindeer

The Ship - MS Spitsbergen

The Spitsbergen is named after the Arctic crown of Norway - the archipelago of Spitsbergen. Hurtigruten has a long history of travelling to this destination, starting back in 1986 with the Sports Route. After a complete reconstruction MS Spitsbergen will be included in the Hurtigruten fleet in 2016. The ship will feature high standards and comfortable and modern public areas and cabins. The fresh Scandinavian design reflects the colour palette from the sea. The ship is modern and environmentally friendly and we will make further improvements inorder to reduce emissions and fuel consumption. The new Ship's maneuverability and optimal size make her very suitable for exploring the coast of Norway. She will also be equipped and adapted for future sailings in polar waters.
