Day 2-8: Svalbard | Embark

  • Ship
  • 7 Breakfasts, 7 Lunches, 7 Dinners
Start your adventure in Svalbard by exploring Longyearbyen. In the afternoon, embark the expedition ship M/S Stockholm and sail out through Isfjorden.

You are now in a part of the world where the cruise is totally dependent on the ice and weather conditions. The exact itinerary depends on these factors and on the wildlife you encounter. The goal is to make landings or cruises every day with the Zodiacs. Here are some examples of places you may visit:

Prins Karls Forland
This narrow strip of land is covered by a magnificent and snow-covered mountain chain. The island is also home to many seabirds and harbour seals.

Virgohamna, Danskøya
Two of the most courageous attempts to reach the North Pole started on the island of Danskøya. Swedish balloonist Andrée made an attempt with a hydrogen balloon and American journalist Wellman started with an airship. There are still interesting remnants from these expeditions left on this site.

Fantastic fjords
Svalbard offers the visitor countless spectacular fjords. During your journey explore a few of them, such as Liefdefjorden, meaning “The fjord of love”, lined with snow-covered mountain peaks. Here, the hope is to cruise along the face of the spectacular Monaco Glacier. Many common eiders and pink-footed geese nest in the area and if you're lucky, you can see the rare king eider. In Krossfjorden, revel in the beautifully sculptured front of the 14th of July Glacier and the raucous greeting of the large number of kittiwakes and Brünnich’s guillemots nesting on the nearby cliffs. Raudfjorden is an area of immense natural beauty dominated by beautiful glaciers. It is also a favorite spot for seals, and the bird cliffs are bursting with activity. The scientific village of Ny Ålesund is situated in Kongsfjorden. It was from here that Amundsen and Nobile started their heroic expeditions to the North Pole.

North Spitsbergen 
North of Spitsbergen you might meet the edge of the pack ice. Not many ships venture here and you can marvel at the silence and grandeur of this icy landscape. Chances of meeting polar bears increase as you sail along the ice floes. 

Southwest Spitsbergen
The grand fjords of Hornsund offer spectacular glaciers and a breathtaking landscape of towering mountain peaks, often reaching above the clouds. On a clear day, you will see the summit of the highest mountain Hornsundtind, measuring 1431 meters. Hornsund is a favorite haunt for some of Svalbard’s polar bears and bearded seals are often seen resting on the fjord ice.

Our guide and driver were very good with their knowledge and were very helpful with our questions. It was a very pleasant visit that would have been impossible to do on our own. Hotels and restaurants were fantastic. The special places we got to go to, like the kitchens, were great. Enjoyed the entire trip!
