Begin your adventure today. There are no planned activities so feel free to explore or rest up for the excitement ahead. This afternoon, join your fellow passengers to begin your journey on the G Expedition. (D)
Visit ice-covered fjords with breathtaking mountain scenery and glaciers. Spend time exploring the natural wilderness searching for polar bears hunting seals. Look out for arctic foxes or Svalbard's unique reindeer.
Early-season voyages often provide the greatest opportunity to see large ice floes in the Arctic pack ice, which means excellent wildlife viewing. Later in the season, we can cover more territory, which may allow the chance to explore the entire archipelago, including the less explored regions of Nordaustlandet and Kvitøya, or the continental edges where large whales are attracted by nutrient rich upwellings.
Each day will be planned to take advantage of local ice and weather conditions. Distances are relatively short in the Archipelago and the seas are normally calm.
There will be the possibility to cruise in Zodiacs along the ice edge viewing seals or walrus, in fjords with glaciers spilling down to the sea or in front of spectacular seabird cliffs.
There will also be lectures hosted throughout the trip on anything from local wildlife to the history and exploration of the Arctic. (B) (L) (D)
