The Complete Spitsbergen Expedition
10 days, June & July 2018
From $7,376 per person
With more polar bears than people, Svalbard provides an excellent chance to see these magnificent predators. This expedition is one of a kind, with a multitude of landing sites and exciting experiences in the Arctic. We will sail above 80º N, to take you to the ice edge of the Arctic Ocean. The adventure will include several excursions including hiking, kayaking and other activities on land and on the water. There’s also a good chance that we’ll see a polar bear – after all, there are more polar bears than there are humans on Svalbard. Starting in Longyearbyen, we sail well above the 80th parallel and place you closer than 600 nautical miles from the Geographical North Pole. Explore the great national parks and some of the most spectacular highlights of the Arctic. One might expect it to be unbearably cold this far north. However, thanks to the Gulf Stream, the Svalbard archipelago boasts a surprisingly mild climate in summer.

Beautiful, beautiful country. I cannot wait to go back.
We had a *fantastic* time in Iceland - so much so that halfway through the trip, my husband and I were "jokingly" wondering aloud what jobs we could get in Iceland so we could stay.
Accessible via a short, five-hour flight from the east coast of the United States, Iceland is a lot closer than you might imagine
