Spitsbergen is the crown of Arctic Norway; an island forged by wind, ocean, ice and snow. Its location creates a biological hot spot, where the frigid Arctic Ocean meets the warmer currents of the Gulf Stream. We might get lucky and spot a polar bear searching for seals.

During the entire adventure, our programme of shore excursions will take you close to both Arctic wildlife and cultural reminders of the early whaling era.
