About the cruise

Route: Longyearbyen - Longyearbyen

The town on top of the world 

Your adventure starts in the unique town of Longyearbyen, located right at the edge of an arctic wilderness. Enjoy a guided tour that includes visits to the Svalbard Museum before sailing the Isfjord to the Russian settlement of Barentsburg. You’ll learn about the history and culture of the people who first discovered Svalbard and even get to see some of their art on display alongside Russian artefacts.  

Where beauty and history combine 

Your Captain and Expedition Team will decide which parts of Spitsbergen’s fabled North West Corner we’ll explore. We’ll attempt to land at Magdalenefjord. Framed by spectacular views of jagged mountain peaks and glaciers, you’ll be setting foot on an island with fascinating explorer and whaling history. If the conditions are favourable, we plan to sail above 80° North, bringing you within 600 nautical miles of the North Pole.  

Dramatic fjords and glaciers 

We plan to explore Kongsfjorden, also known as King’s Bay, the largest fjord on the Northwest coast of Spitsbergen. You might get to see glaciers calving into the sea as we enter the fjord and, with luck, polar bears as they trek along the coast’s drifting ice on the hunt for seals. Your expedition will end where it all started in Longyearbyen.
