“Our main focus is the search for Svalbard’s amazing wildlife: polar bear, reindeer and walrus. Observe seals and actic foxes and search for the very symbol of the Arctic- majestic polar bears. Cruising in Svalbard’s fjords, venture to the foot of stunning tidewater glaciers. We take our zodiacs and kayaks to cruise among beautiful icebergs, and experience the geology, wildlife and wildflowers that give color and vitality to the High Arctic.”
