The Arctic’s scenic extremes have long beguiled visitors. In the far north of Svalbard, in the Norwegian Arctic, you’ll see glacier fronts, icebergs and mountainscapes. Thousands of guillemots turn towering cliffs into a riot of movement. In other parts, it’s the encompassing stillness that can stagger you — lonely bays dotted with icebergs, or an unbroken bed of sea ice engulfing the horizon line. Our Polar cruising team have experienced Svalbard on their own voyages, and they’re well-placed to help you choose the ideal itinerary and vessel for your Arctic expedition cruise.

Polar bear sightings, understandably, receive much fanfare. But, as our specialists will tell you, there are also walruses and numerous whale species to look out for, not to mention a host of birdlife. They’ll also recommend you explore Longyearbyen, a permanent human settlement whose existence and history are a surprising and enriching aspect of Arctic travel.
