THE SVALBARD ARCHIPELAGO

THE SVALBARD ARCHIPELAGO

Norway’s magical lands at sea

Svalbard offers you a fantastic introduction to the Arctic. A deserted archipelago full of other-worldly landscapes, polar bears, walrus, whales and ice. Beyond the vast glaciers, towering mountains and rare wildlife, what makes Svalbard unique is how barren it is. Sailing 80 degrees north, depending on ice conditions, you may yourself anywhere from 600 to 400 miles from the North Pole. Here, you’ll learn about polar history and experience this extraordinary region on foot, by Zodiac® and in utmost luxury onboard.

Embark on a life-changing expedition to the Far North in 2023 and enjoy savings of up to 20% on Door-to-Door All-Inclusive fares when booked by 28 February 2023.

EXPLORE THE HIDDEN SECRETS OF SVALBARD

Located halfway between the northernmost tip of Norway and the North Pole, Svalbard is the Land of the Polar Bear – a High Arctic archipelago of rugged mountains, towering ice caps, immense glaciers and deep frozen fjords. The immense silence creates a tranquillity unrivalled almost anywhere on Earth. There’s nothing like suddenly hearing chunks of ice break off a millennial glacier from the seat of a Zodiac® while floating on the icy sea. Up here at 78° North, the world’s most seasoned expedition experts will take you closer to the heart of the Arctic to reveal the true wonder of this region.

SEE EPIC SCENERY AND RARE WILDLIFE

Hiking in Fjortende Julibreen, you’ll discover majestic landscapes teeming with walruses, seals, foxes and bears. Kayaking at Magdalenefjiorden, you’ll explore the sea, bays and inlets first hand where you can catch these sights and more. Floating alongside towering icebergs while a humpback whale or curious seal glides beside you, or hops out of the water to introduce itself, are just some of the many experiences you’ll always remember. From geologists, birders and glacier specialists, to specialists in flora and fauna, our team will enrich your adventure and unlock the secrets of Svalbard.
