Days: 8 to 11
For Arctic wildlife viewing - polar bears, whales, reindeer, seabirds - a Spitsbergen cruise can't be beat. And, the M/S Expedition will take you there in comfort and safety. We offer both 8 day and 11 day cruises aboard Expedition, in a selection of top-of-the-line cabins.
We will make daily landings in this remote archipelago, using the ship as our comfortable base. You will see enormous tidewater glaciers, ancient camps of early whalers and polar explorers, enormous seabird colonies and walrus and polar bears on the polar sea ice.
Spitsbergen, a protectorate of Norway, lies far above the Arctic Circle, only about 600 miles from the North Pole. You'll experience the fabled "Land of the Midnight Sun" - 24 hours of daylight. More time to spend photographing and watching wildlife and the stunning Arctic scenery!
