Travel to High Arctic Spitsbergen on these Svalbard expedition cruises
Browse the range of Svalbard cruises and tours here at Expeditions Online. You might also be interested in our Greenland cruises or our Canadian Arctic cruises. Travel to Spitsbergen, the main island of the Svalbard Archipelago. This is a very accessible affordable way to travel to the High Arctic and you’re guaranteed to have an incredible time! The Svalbard Archipelago is halfway between North Cape and the North Pole, yet flights from Norway reach the tiny township of Longyearbyen in just a few hours. From here, you join an expedition cruise and head out to explore the wildly beautiful Spitsbergen coastline, in search of polar bears roaming the pack ice hunting for seals and walruses. Svalbard is one of the most northerly landmasses in the Arctic; it is at the edge of the ice-covered Arctic Ocean. During the short summer, Svalbard comes alive with visiting and endemic wildlife. Vast colonies of seabirds soar and circle over spectacular cliff breeding grounds. Embark on a Svalbard cruise and marvel at the spectacular mountains springing from the sea, blue ice, and grinding glaciers!
