Day 2: Longyearbyen. Time at leisure.
Day 3: Longyearbyen/Spitsbergen. Transfer to the G Expedition for a late afternoon embarkation. Includes lunch & dinner on board.
Days 4–9: Cruising Spitsbergen. This voyage is spent travelling in the world in which the polar bear survives. Your wildlife viewing opportunities are enhanced by exploring as many remote areas as possible. Spotting wildlife like the arctic fox, Svalbard reindeer, and land or sea birds can be difficult, but well worth the effort.
Ice and weather conditions permitting, the G Expedition can explore near sea ice, through fjords that lead to glaciers and icebergs, and discover bird nesting colonies, all from the platform of the ship. Alternatively, you can hop in a Zodiac to explore more closely, or be brought to land to visit historical sites and experience the tundra.
Your crew are always on the lookout for wildlife, ranging from endangered and rare polar species to sea mammals and birds. And, of course, keep your eyes peeled for polar bears - they can be found all throughout this region, but finding them can require patience and persistence. Come join us in the search!
Day 10: Spitsbergen/Longyearbyen/Oslo. Disembark the G Expedition and transfer to the Longyearbyen airport for your flight to Oslo. On arrival transfer to your hotel for an overnight stay.
Day 11: Oslo/Fly UK. Transfer to the airport for your return flight back to the UK.
