PLEASE NOTE: N.B. The chances that we can complete a full Spitsbergen Circumnavigation (based on our experiences from 1992 until 2015) are about, 20 % in the first half of July, 50 % in the second half of July, 80 % in the first half of August, 90 % in the second half of August. In case we cannot complete a full circumnavigation we will mostly resort to a program in Northeast or Southeast Spitsbergen. A typical itinerary to Around Spitsbergen is illustrated right. All itineraries are for guidance only. Programs may vary depending on local ice and weather conditions, the availability of landing sites and opportunities to see wildlife. The final itinerary will be determined by the Expedition Leader on board. Flexibility is paramount for expedition cruises.
