Land of the Ice Bears: An Exploration of Arctic Svalbard - Endurance
This brand-new ship with National Geographic-level guiding, offers one of the world's most outstanding trips for searching out the elusive polar bear.
The Arctic: Drink It In
Sail to the high Arctic archipelago of Svalbard, the best place on the planet to see polar bears—wild and majestic in their native habitat. Over the past 30+ years, ace spotters have given this ship's guests multiple opportunities to experience close sightings. In addition to the bears, you’ll have the opportunity to see and observe walrus, fascinating creatures and wonderful photo subjects, reindeer, elusive arctic foxes, fur seals, and a glory of birds. The islands of the archipelago are ideal for walking, with some hikes revealing artful, sculptural arrangements of whale bones on pebbled beaches, and the ghostly remains of trapper’s huts.
- • Search for polar bears and walrus alongside skilled veteran spotters who know where to look for them.
• Explore under the midnight sun—and take advantage of spectacular photo ops with tips from a National Geographic photographer.
• Travel on a brand-new, purpose-built expedition ship with kayaks and an underwater viewing device for seeing the ocean floor.
