This 8-day expedition takes you to the remote and pristine island of North Spitsbergen, in the Arctic Svalbard archipelago. Led by an expert team of guides, you'll have the opportunity to see polar bears, a variety of bird species, and other Arctic wildlife. You'll also experience the midnight sun, a phenomenon that occurs during the Arctic summer when the sun is visible for a full 24 hours in fair weather.
Longyearbyen is the administrative centre of Spitsbergen - the largest of the Svalbard islands. This former mining city is a fascinating place to stroll around. The parish church and Svalbard Museum are both interesting attractions. The landscape may appear barren, but it is home to more than 100 species of plants. Early evening, the ship leaves Isfjorden. You might see the first Minke Whale of the voyage.
