From the Arctic wilderness of Svalbard to the majestic charm of the Lofoten Islands, this voyage will not disappoint.

From the Arctic wilderness of Svalbard to the majestic charm of the Lofoten Islands, this voyage will not disappoint. Majestic mountains, deep fjords, fascinating wildlife and the golden glow of the midnight sun are all encompassed in this Arctic adventure through the Land of the Midnight Sun.

The voyage begins in Svalbard's main settlement and entry point, Longyearbyen, Visiting Svalbard is like crossing some remote frontier of the mind: Svalbard is as close as most mortals can get to the North Pole and still capture its spirit. During this voyage we spend the first 4 days visiting the West coast of Svalbard, visiting fjords with breathtaking mountain scenery, and glaciers flowing into the sea around us.

Leaving Spitsbergen, we head for Bear Island, 150km South of Svalbard.

Bear island

A voyage to Bear Island is a highlight of this voyage. Bear Island is the southernmost Island of the Svalbard archipelago. The Island is located in the western part of the Barents sea, approximately half way between Spitsbergen and the North Cape. An important Bird Area for seabirds, it supports breeding populations of Northern Fulmars, Purple Sandpipers, Red Phalaropes, Glaucous Gulls, Black-legged Kittiwakes, Little Auks, Common Guillemots, Thick-billed Guillemots, Black Guillemots, Pink-footed geese, Barnacle Geese and Long-tailed Ducks.

Other wildlife spotted on and around Bear Island are Arctic Foxes, White Beaked dolphins, Minke Whales, Ringed Seals, Harp Seals, Hooded Seals and Walruses.

Bear Island is a demonstration of the wonderful diversity of life in very harsh Arctic conditions.

Leaving Bear Island we make the 300 mile journey across the Barents Sea and Norwegian Sea to the Lofoten Islands, with plenty of time to explore Norway’s untamed islands.

The Lofted Islands

The Lofoten Islands are draped across the turbulent waters of the Norwegian Sea, far above the Arctic Circle. This rare wilderness outpost offers an untrammelled landscape of Majestic mountains, deep fjords, squawking seabird colonies and long surf-swept beaches. If you are seeking unforgettable nature experiences, Lofoten will definitely not let you down.
