Itinerary Overview

See Svalbard the way few have ever seen it, during its spring awakening—a true Arctic refuge, covered in snow, surrounded by sea ice. Watch for polar bears returning to the spring hunting grounds to coincide with the seals pupping. Be stunned by astonishing light, as the spring sun mounts higher each day. Capture it all with ace photographers or view it from our exclusive polar igloos.
