Cruise Description

12 Night Cruise sailing from Longyearbyen roundtrip aboard Sea Adventurer.

This unique 13-day voyage is a first for Quark Expeditions! Like true arctic adventurers, we’re tossing out our itinerary, choosing instead to let our search for polar bears and other wildlife determine our route and shore landings. Your foray into modern-day exploration will bring you to the Arctic of your dreams, immersed as you’ll be in all the natural wonders of the land of the midnight sun. Cruising along the coast, ice edge and inner fiords of Spitsbergen, one of most prolific destinations for viewing arctic wildlife, you’ll be rewarded with the opportunity to photograph the iconic polar bear in its natural habitat. Glacier-topped mountains, massive glacier fronts and deep-walled fjords soar majestically out of the icy sea, providing breathtaking backdrops for vast swaths of untouched tundra. Talk about picture perfect! Exploring this awe- inspiring area of the Svalbard archipelago never ceases to impress with its raw beauty, and you’ll experience it firsthand on this once-in-a-lifetime journey.

Itinerary:

Day 1 — Embarkation Day in Longyearbyen, Norway
Your arctic adventure starts in Longyearbyen, Spitsbergen’s largest settlement and one of the northernmost communities on the planet. Have your camera handy as you embark on your journey—picturesque peaks surround this town in the bay of Svalbard’s second-longest fjord.

Days 2 to 12 — Exploring Spitsbergen
Spitsbergen has an unspoiled beauty that’s just begging to be discovered. On this one-of-a-kind cruise, you’ll sail along the west coast of this magical island, exploring the coastal fjords and smaller, outlying islands. Each day will be a surprise, treating you to spectacular new sightings and experiences.

Day 13 — Depart Longyearbyen
Returning to where your adventure began, Longyearbyen, you’ll have time to bid a fond farewell to your newfound friends before disembarking. From here, we’ll transfer you to the airport for your flight home.
