Arctic Circle

Covering nearly 4% of the Earth’s surface, the Arctic Circle is brimming with glaciers, icebergs, and snow-white islands, with colorful indigenous settlements nestled by its palatial fjords, and unique and diverse wildlife and marine life thriving in its vast expanses.

Included Activities

Spitsbergen In Depth: Big Islands, Big Adventure (Day 2)
Embarkation in Longyearbyen, Svalbard: Breathe in the crisp Norwegian air as you head towards the airport in the morning. You will board your charter flight to Longyearbyen, the largest settlement in Spitsbergen. Having landed, you can enjoy a quick snow scooter ride or drop by the Svalbard Museum to check out the city’s frontier history. Soon, it is time to embark on your journey. Climb on board and acquaint yourself with the ship and its crew. As the vessel pulls out of the harbor, you can witness the grand Arctic scenery of towering glaciers and icy mountains unfold in the distance.

Spitsbergen In Depth: Big Islands, Big Adventure (Days 3 – 13)
Exploring Spitsbergen: Explore the rugged landscape of beautiful Spitsbergen! Begin your journey by sailing north around the island, exploring the fjords and the smaller islands along the way. Spitsbergen is truly a treat for the eyes, with stretches of wildflower tundra meadows interspersed with massive glaciers. Depending on the weather, you might circle more of the region, including many outer islands of the Svalbarg Archipelago. Some of the stunning places you may visit include the 14th of July Glacier, the Phippsøya Island, the Alkefjellet Cliffs and the seldom-visited Kvitøya or White Island. Look out for the puffins, purple sandpipers, common eiders and Arctic terns which inhabit the 14th of July Glacier, while the Alkefjellet Cliffs are famous for nesting Brünnich’s guillemots. Ny London, Sundneset and Alkhornet are great places to spot reindeer. If you’re lucky you might catch a glimpse of the elusive polar bears in Phippsøya and Isbukta, both sites of sea ice which are the bears’ preferred hunting grounds. Learn about the history of the island and its whaling industry from on-board experts. See the remains of 16th-century whaling outposts when you visit Smeerenburg and other such landing sites.

Spitsbergen In Depth: Big Islands, Big Adventure (Day 14)
Disembark in Longyearbyen and fly to Oslo: End your Arctic adventure at Longyearben! Return to this charming settlement and say goodbye to the ship as you gather your luggage and disembark. You can linger a bit in Longyearben to share a drink with your fellow shipmates and newfound friends. Your expedition team is there to answer any questions you may have on the last leg of your journey. Head to the airport and board a return charter flight to Oslo where your group will disband to go their separate ways. You can stay on in Oslo for a few days to explore the city or head back home.
