Land of the Ice Bears: An In-Depth Exploration of Arctic Svalbard
aboard the 148-guest National Geographic Explorer

June 14 - 23, 2013 (11 Days)

Double occupancy: From $8,650 per person
Single occupancy: From $11,540



A remote archipelago situated just over 350 miles north of Norway's North Cape, Svalbard is a place of deep fjords, mountains and massive sheets of ice. During summer, when the sun never sets, the tundra experiences a warm awakening and is carpeted with wildflowers. Icepeppered fjords ring with the thunderous sound of glacial ice crashing to the sea, and walrus raise their sleepy heads to observe us. Witness seals and arctic foxes and search for the very symbol of the Arctic— majestic polar bears. Cruise Svalbard’s fjords, venture to the foot of stunning tidewater glaciers, and kayak among beautiful icebergs. Travel as far north as it is possible to go without an icebreaker, and experience the geology, wildlife, and wildflowers that give color and vitality to the High Arctic.
