Weigh anchor and head for one of hte northernmost inhabited archipelagos on the planet - Svalbard (Spitsbergen) in Norway. Just 600 miles from the geographic North Pole and due north of the Scandinavian destinations of Norway, Sweden, and Finland, the frigid waters of the Arctic give you access to wonders like the Northern Lights or the towering fjords that characterize this region. An exploration of the expansive tundras will get you up close (but not too close!) to the polar bears, whose thick fur protects them from the chilling winds. These giant creatures blend right into their glacial habitat, but with a keen eye, you'll be able to spot whole families. These polar islands also provide an excellent starting point for cruises to other destinations in the Arctic Circle, like Iceland & Greenland.
