Run by: Discover The World
Reference number: SPITSBERGEN-AROSPI10NT
This is the ‘star’ voyage in our Arctic portfolio, exploring the full coastline of the largest island of the Svalbard archipelago, Spitsbergen. Renowned for wildlife watching opportunities both on land and in the marine rich coastal waters, discover this last frontier of the inhabitable world on a fabulous 11 or 13-day voyage. Encounter polar bears and walrus in their natural habitat, cruise past past glaciers, ice-floes and towering sea cliffs and visit fascinating historic and scientific sites. Optional kayaking is available on selected departures (additional cost).
Please note that the chance of circumnavigation is higher later in the season, when the ice has melted and more channels are open. Early departures are better for those wanting to see the region's rich birdlife and to experience large ice-floes. All voyage itineraries are dependent on the sea-ice conditions at the time of travel!
Available June to July. Return airfares from the UK are quoted separately to ensure you receive the best price and are not included in the price. Please contact us for a flight quotation.
