Circumnavigate Spitsbergen, the Arctic archipelago north of Norway also known as Svalbard. This is the largest wilderness area in Europe and home to polar bears, walrus, various seals and whales, including the elusive Narwhal. You will also see an abundant variety of seabirds, including the Northern fulmar.
This voyage is offered aboard two sister ships, M/V Ortelius and M/V Plancius. Both are comfortable, expedition class ice strengthened ships, perfect for traveling through the Arctic region.
Spitsbergen is also rich in history, as it has been the launching point of many polar expeditions, some successful and some that failed. You will visit some of the actual bases used by explorers such as Amundsen and Perry.
