Day 1: Helsinki, Finland

Your Arctic adventure begins in Helsinki, renowned for its extraordinary architecture and intriguing mix of eastern and western influences. If you arrive early, explore the many museums, galleries and restaurants, relax at a Finnish sauna or wander the vibrant Design District before retiring at your included hotel.

  • 4 Breakfasts, 4 Lunches, 4 Dinners
Explore and enjoy the abundant wildlife and austere beauty found in the largest island in the Norwegian Svalbard archipelago, Spitsbergen. Visit the spectacular glacier fronts and steep-walled fjords, with walrus, polar bears and Svalbard reindeer amongst your possible wildlife sightings. You will be thrilled to see arctic terns, skuas, long-tailed ducks, kittiwakes and ivory gulls and if conditions permit, sail within 10 degrees of the North Pole!

This was our first trip to South America and we were a little nervous. But Adventure Life made things so easy! All our questions were answered before we left, and our guide, Vidal, was amazing! He gave us enough space to explore without rushing us along. He also knew where the best picture taking opportunities were, which was great.
