Itinerary idea in detail

Includes international flights from a choice of UK airports, including London, Birmingham, Manchester, Newcastle, Edinburgh and Glasgow.

  • Today you begin your journey by boarding your international outbound flight to Longyearbyen. Arrive in Longyearbyen and make your way to your hotel.

  • After a morning to explore Longyearbyen and the excellent Polar Museum you will board the ship and set sail along the fjord. This entry level option is based on a berth in a twin cabin on the MS Expedition.

  • Each and every day will be different as you explore the coast. Polar bear sightings can happen anywhere at any time.

  • Spend time out on deck watching for belugas and other wildlife.

  • Visit an old whaling station and imagine what it must have felt like to live there.

  • Pay a visit to Ny Alesund, the most northerly permanent research base in the world.

  • Go for a long hike across the Arctic tundra, keeping an eye open for Arctic foxes.

  • Absorb the scenery of Spitsbergen and listen to the sound of ice against the hull.

  • Disembark in Longyearbyen and fly south to Oslo to begin your journey home. Your return flight will arrive the same day.
