Itinerary:

Enjoy the immense beauty of Svalbard on this high Arctic adventure cruise among whales, walruses, polar bears and millions of sea birds. The goal of this Albatros expedition is to cruise as close as possible to the pack ice north of Svalbard, the polar bear´s favorite summer residence. How far north
we reach and the exact route up here will depend on the ice conditions, while the many amazing locations along the west coast of Svalbard for sure are kept navigable by the warm Gulf Stream. Depending on how far north we reach we can add some extraordinary locations south of Longyearbyen like Bellsund and Hornsund to the program. Along the way, we’ll visit national parks and cozy little towns, stand on the polar circle, enter the black lava sand and learn about the Icelandic sagas, an intrinsic part of the Icelanders identity.
