Realm Of The Polar Bear in Depth - M/v Polar Pioneer

This Spitsbergen odyssey reveals the diversity of this island archipelago and takes us into the kingdom of the polar bear. You'll explore the coastline, with no open sea crossings, against a backdrop of spectacular glacier-covered peaks and discover deep fjords in the west, mysterious, fossil-rich desert plains in the east and best of all, seals and whales in the Arctic pack ice. This voyage offers the best chance for seeing reindeer and polar bears, and features wildflower walks across sweeping tundra, trapper camps and historical remains of whaling stations.

Tour Highlights

  • See the King of the Arctic, the mighty polar bear
  • Visit the bird cliffs of Alkfejellet, where thousands of Brunnich's guillemots swirl around
  • See walruses lounging around and seals on ice floes - great for photographs
  • Take excursions in Zodiacs, to get off the boat and on shore in the Arctic
  • Travel in the company of like-minded passengers on-board a friendly expedition ship
