Region: Arctic

Destinations: Svalbard

Ship: s/v Noorderlicht

Highlights: Arctic Fox, Polar Bear

If you ever wanted to know how it felt when the first settlers or whalers set foot on the remote, cold, rugged shores of what must be referred to as the classic Ultimate Thule you have to join a ship as the Noorderlicht. With an extraordinary experienced and warm crew and guide you get to explore waters and landings round Spitsbergen: an almost primal and pristine wilderness where humpback whales accompany your morning coffee and a wandering polar bear catches the first rays of the sun. Polar foxes rummage alongside the shoreline in the shade of a massive gletscher. And hear your heart beat, really beat, on top of a hill overlooking green waters and marble blue ice fields. Floris, Robert, Mick, Gabriella and Sarah, thank you for plotting the right course, setting sail, providing the food and taking care of a bunch of people by teaching them about the beauty and vulnerability of a place like Spitsbergen.
