Svalbard cruises: a stone’s throw from the North Pole

Cruise to Spitsbergen, the largest and most populated island in the Svalbard archipelago, which floats in the Arctic Ocean a mere 300 miles from the North Pole. Remote, wild and incredibly beautiful, Spitsbergen is peppered with high rugged mountain peaks covered in frozen tundra and glaciers. Arctic birds, polar bears, whales and walruses are all protected on the island. Surrounded by pack ice, its coastline is, however, accessible to visitors during the Artic summer, treating them to dazzling expanses of mosses, lichens and brightly-coloured wild flowers as well as its unique wildlife.
