From the earliest Greek legends of ‘ultima Thule’ to overwintering trappers, it seems mankind has always felt the pull of the Far North. Our Polar specialists have journeyed to the Arctic, and they understand its lure. But they’ll also tell you that there’s more to this realm of water and ice than the chance to spot polar bears.
They’ll describe the Arctic’s attractions, from tundra ecology to possible birdlife. They’ll talk to you in detail about what to expect on an Arctic expedition cruise around Spitsbergen (Svalbard), from boarding in Longyearbyen to the long, light Polar nights, and how to choose your vessel. Then they’ll craft an itinerary to suit your timeframe, budget and interests, which could even include Arctic destinations beyond Svalbard, such as East Greenland.
