Overview

​Arctic Cruise with a focus on seeing Polar Bears: Within a wildlife cruise around Spitsbergen there are known areas where Polar Bear sightings are more common. These may be haul-out areas for their favourite prey, such as Ringed Seals or Walrus, or in the pack ice. This expedition cruise will visit all these key areas, and combine visits to beautiful fjords and glaciers and you search for that special Polar Bear sighting amongst the atmospheric pack ice. This is an Arctic Cruise for those looking to maximise their encounters with Polar Bears but also to keep an eye on the budget.
