Also known as Spitsbergen, the name of the archipelago's largest island. Svalbard Is located within the Arctic Ocean, midway between Norway and the North Pole, Svalbard is an incredible place with beautiful landscapes and a myriad of mesmerising wildlife. As you explore the archipelago you will glide through iceberg-strewn seas to the Arctic coast where you’ll find large flat plains, mossy tundra dusted with snow and sharp mountains jutting from the earth like icy blades. The landscapes are a delight to behold and a photographer’s dream, with awe-inspiring frozen lands littered with towering icebergs over 10 storeys high. Wildlife in the Arctic is hugely diverse and perfectly adapted to the cold. Polar bears are undoubtedly the stars of the show, but accompanied by walruses, seals and whales at every turn, you’ll have a hard time picking out a highlight.
Our team of Arctic specialists are on hand to help you find the perfect cruise for your requirements, taking into account when you want to travel, the wildlife you want to see and the type of ship you want to travel on.
