Spitsbergen in Depth

Spitsbergen in Depth

The call of the Arctic has a particular allure – a promise of vast icy plains, untouched fjords and wildlife rarely seen anywhere else. This voyage captures the essence of the Arctic, taking you on an unforgettable trip around Spitsbergen, the largest island of Norway’s Svalbard archipelago. It boasts a rich array of rocky coasts, glimmering fjords and glacial structures. As you circumnavigate the island, get up close with the wild beauty of the landscape; hike towering glaciers, explore remote coves and roam through flowering tundras. There’s plenty of opportunity to spot iconic wildlife, with polar bears, Arctic foxes, walruses and many varieties of seabirds all living in Spitsbergen’s vast wilderness. Take a breath of crisp northern air and let the endless winter wash over you.

Holiday Highlights

  • Uncover the incredible landscape of Spitsbergen, from the quirky northernmost city of Longyearbyen and brilliantly blue glaciers like the ‘14th July Glacier’, to stunning fjords and towering mountains and cliffs
  • There are few things as unique and memorable as experiencing bright sunlight in the middle of the night – try it for yourself with the 24 hours sunlit Spitsbergen
  • Scour sheets of ice and hopefully be rewarded with unforgettable sightings of the ruler of the Arctic – the Polar Bear
  • Endless sunlight brings with it endless wildlife-viewing opportunities – seek out elusive Arctic foxes, breaching whales, lounging masses of walruses, and enchanting seabirds dotted along the cliffs of Alkefjellet
  • Get even closer to this amazing environment with optional activities like snowshoeing, hiking, and gliding along pristine waters between icebergs in a sea kayak
