The Best of Spitsbergen
Explore the Far North on this 8-day expedition cruise to the heart of Spitsbergen, the largest island in the Svalbard archipelago. The scenery is spectacular and the flora and fauna exceptional. Longyearbyen is the northernmost territorial capital on the planet and the starting point of your Arctic voyage. Witness the alpine glaciers, floating icebergs and tundra of Cross Bay; marvel at the impressive wall of ice at the 14th July Glacier and admire the snow-capped mountains of Magdalena Bay where polar bears roam. Discover former trappers huts and abandoned mining towns and see the beautiful blue-tinged jagged walls of Monaco Glacier. This cruise takes you to the top of the world, to the last islands before the North Pole to reach latitudes of 80° north. This is a true Arctic adventure!
