The Far North and the expanse of the Arctic polar world and its sea ice stretching all the way to the North Pole are yours to admire during an all-new 9-day exploratory cruise. Discover these remote territories from the North of Spitsbergen to Nordaustlandet, a region inaccessible to traditional cruise ships at this time of year. Aboard Le Commandant Charcot, the first hybrid electric polar exploration ship, you will cross the magnificent landscapes of Kongsfjorden, then the Nordvest-Spitsbergen National Park.

Day 1: Longyearbyen, Spitsbergen | Embark

Longyearbyen is the capital of the Norwegian Svalbard archipelago, located on Svalbard’s main island, and is the northernmost territorial capital on the planet. With winter temperatures dropping to below 40°C, the landscapes of this mining town are simply breathtaking. The glaciers, the mountains stretching as far as the eye can see, and the untouched nature, make you feel like you’re in completely unexplored territory

Day 2-4: Nordaust | Svalbard Nature Reserve

  • Ship
  • 3 Breakfasts, 3 Lunches, 3 Dinners
The Nordaust-Svalbard Nature Reserve has been protecting the northernmost and coldest part of the archipelago, Nordaustlandet (North East Land), since 1973. This vast polar desert covered by two ice caps is the second-largest island in the Svalbard archipelago. Protected by the Gulf Stream, the fjords and cliffs in the west and north are home to large colonies of birds and walruses. The landscapes in the colder east and south are dominated by imposing glaciers that calve majestic icebergs in the vast Hinlopen Strait. Large colonies of thick-billed murres have taken up residence on the sheer cliffs. You may even get the chance to see a bear or an Arctic fox roaming in the vicinity

Day 5-7: Sailing in the Hinlopen Strait

  • Ship
  • 3 Breakfasts, 3 Lunches, 3 Dinners
The Nordaust-Svalbard Nature Reserve has been protecting the northernmost and coldest part of the archipelago, Nordaustlandet (North East Land), since 1973.

Day 8: Nordvest - Spitsbergen National Park

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Like the other protected areas of Svalbard, the Nordvest-Spitsbergen National Park was established in the early 1970s to protect this exceptional environment against the growing interest of the mining industry. Nunataks, glaciers, islands and large bays, arctic tundra scattered with moss and lichen in shades of silver and gold... This region will fascinate you with its landscapes and with the numerous vestiges that bear witness to the history of the men ─ whale hunters and those involved in the first expeditions to the North Pole ─ who found themselves on these shores from the start of the 17th century. In this pristine environment, you will be able to observe arctic sterns or seals on the rocks that emerge at low tide.

Day 9: Longyearbyen, Spitsbergen | Disembark

Longyearbyen is the capital of the Norwegian Svalbard archipelago, located on Svalbard’s main island, and is the northernmost territorial capital on the planet. With winter temperatures dropping to below 40°C, the landscapes of this mining town are simply breathtaking. The glaciers, the mountains stretching as far as the eye can see, and the untouched nature, make you feel like you’re in completely unexplored territory.
