Expedition Highlights

  • Search for the Svalbard Archipelago’s legendary wildlife: seals, walrus, whales, Arctic foxes, and our ultimate goal—polar bears.
  • Photograph dramatic landscapes, including chiseled fjords, glittering glaciers, and lush tundra blazing with purple saxifrage and moss campion.
  • Explore by Zodiac to discover hundreds of thousands of breeding seabirds, including kittiwakes, guillemots, dovekies, puffins, and rare ivory gulls.
  • Step back in history as you visit former whaling stations and sites that recall the exploits of famous explorers.

Expedition Team

Ocean Adventurer

The 120-guest Ocean Adventurer will be refurbished in 2017 and is a superb oceangoing vessel equipped with stabilizers and an ice-strengthened hull that allow her to navigate easily in the most rugged natural environments. A fleet of Zodiac landing craft allows us to explore at a moment’s notice. Each stateroom has an ocean view, an in-room music system, and en suite bathroom.
