Start your journey and board your ship in Longyearbyen, Norway's largest settlement. Enjoy the incredible view of the island's rugged, glacier-topped mountains as they rise from the icy waters!
Each day you'll embark on a new adventure as you begin the circumnavigation by travelling north around the island of Spitsbergen. Along the way you'll explore smaller, outlying islands. You'll gaze in awe as you witness the array of wildlife and geological formations of the area.
If conditions are favorable, you will not only circumnavigate Spitsbergen, you'll also attempt to circumnavigate the entire Svalbard archipelago.
Visit sites like Ny London, Sundneset, and Alkhornet where you'll see reindeer. Phippsoya and Isbukta are two sites you'll explore to witness Polar Bears.
While on your journey you'll learn more about the culture of Spitsbergen, not just how they live today but how the land was first explored. Whaling was a key industry of this island and you'll even see 16th century blubber ovens and other evidence at sites like Smeerenburg.
Return to Longyearbyen where you'll have a chance to say goodbye to your new friends. Return to the airport for your flight home or onto your next destination!
