Svalbard Island Cruise (7N/8D): Day One

Settle into your cabin aboard your Svalbard cruiser, meet your skipper and learn about the safety, itinerary and other important facts for the navigation. The boat will then set sail and head north. This evening a welcome dinner will be served to celebrate your first night on board.

Throughout the following days your cruiser will border the west coast of Spitsbergen toward the north, visiting spots such as Ny-Alesund, Magdalenfjord, Prins Karls Forland, Kongsfjorden and Moffen island, among many other beautiful destinations. With more polar bears than people living in the islands (2500 individuals), the main efforts of the cruise will be to find the white bears with each situation varying dependent on the behavior of the animals, with safety as first priority. The final itinerary will be adapted to the polar bears’ movements, tracks and other relevant facts to the route. All meals will be served on board, while picnics will be organised ashore according to weather conditions.
