Expedition mode begins as soon as you depart Longyearbyen – your Expedition Leader and Captain determine the route based on wildlife, weather, and ice conditions. Places to visit include Adventfjorden, Northwest Corner, Hinlopen Strait, Liefdefjorden, 
Kongsfjorden and Isfjorden. MS Villa is an excellent platform for photographing the stunning scenery as you sail towards the pack ice, searching for seabirds, seals, whales, and, of course, the King of the Arctic… the polar bear.

The trip was terrific with great planning on your part. Most of the adventures were not mainstream and somewhat off the beaten path which made it especially enjoyable!! We felt taken care of and you all were readily available to respond to questions and issues. I would highly recommend your company and friends have already expressed interest based on our pictures and excitement.
