Trip at a Glance


  • Sail along the coast of Norway’s Spitsbergen island, dotted with fjords and glaciers, searching for bearded seals and seabird colonies among the extensive ice sheets.
  • Keep your eyes peeled for polar bears at every turn, paying close attention to expertly trained guides who are adept at spotting these white, furry, and well-camouflaged creatures.
  • Weather permitting, come within sight of the 3-mile-long behemoth Monaco Glacier, a favorite feeding spot for seabirds and thus a popular polar bear hunting ground.
  • Partake in daily zodiac excursions to get up-close and personal with marine wildlife, floating icebergs, and impressive ice floes.
  • Visit Hinlopen Strait on a land excursion, home to endemic Arctic wildlife such as pink-footed geese, walruses, and velvety-antlered reindeer.
  • Weather permitting, sail to 80-degrees north, coming within approximately 540 miles of the geographic North Pole!
