This voyage is undertaken in the spirit of discovery, and our travel in the archipelago is exploratory by design. In a region ruled not by humans but by polar bears, we let nature guide our course.

Zodiacs and kayaks take use closer to experience the region's geologic features and wildlife and wildflowers that flourish during the summer months. With a team of National Geographic photographer and a seasoned naturalist staffs, venture to the foot of stunning tidewater glaciers, kayak among sparkling icebergs, and explore fjords that split the rugged coastlines. Hike through miniature gardens blooming on the tundra; and search the edge of the pack ice for polar bears, walruses, seals, reindeer, and arctic foxes. Svalbard is one of the most extraordinary places on the planet to observe majestic polar bears in their natural environment.
