13Nights Spitsbergen – Northeast Greenland – Aurora Borealis Including Long Hikes

At A Glance

A classic three island voyage: Ice , Inuit and Remoteness

The Spitsbergen and Northeast Greenland cruise sails waters filled with breath-taking scenery. The expedition passes through areas that are home to seals, seabirds, whales, and polar bears, topped off with nighttime viewing of the Northern Lights.

Long hikes are for groups of 24 passengers maximum, accompanied by two armed expedition staff and a Zodiac that will sail ahead to watch for polar bears along the shoreline. Passengers who join this activity should have the willingness and ability to walk at least 15 km (9 miles) in semi-rough terrain that includes shorelines, tundra, low hills, and river crossings. Walks will take around six hours from start to finish, rest times included. We will walk at a modest pace and not cross any alpine terrain. Passengers who do not take part in long walks will have a landing in the morning at the start point of the walk, then sail to the end point of the walk for their second landing in the afternoon.

Destination Highlights

  • Enjoy strolling around Longyearbyen, the largest island of the Svalbard archipelago, whose parish church and Svalbard Museum make for fascinating attractions.
  • Sailing to Raudfjorden, on the north coast of Spitsbergen, you take in an expansive fjord spilling with glaciers – and maybe even visited by ringed and bearded seals.
  • Onward to east Greenland see the jagged edge of the east Greenland sea ice flashing into sight ahead
  • You may sail through the sea ice into Foster Bay and land at Myggebugten
