Isolated from the rest of the world, Spitsbergen is considered the "wildlife capital of the Arctic" due to its pristine natural icescapes and the hardy creatures that inhabit them. Polar bears and walruses are highlights for most travelers as you hike across glaciers and navigate Zodiacs through daunting oceanic iceberg fields. Expert guides will accompany you on these journeys to narrate the exotic sights of the North. Secluded from the noise and distraction of civilization, it is also the perfect place to see the rainbowed Northern Lights (Aurora Borealis) display waving through the sky during the long winter nights. Just 600 miles south of the North Pole, many cruises will also visit the "top of the world" while sailing. Your cruise will depart from Scandinavia for this enchanting yet seldom seen part of our world.
