The Arctic: Drink It In

 
The largest island of the Svalbard archipelago, Spitsbergen is known as the “wildlife capital of the Arctic,” and on this unforgettable 12-day voyage, you will discover why. This journey has been designed to maximize time on the west and northern/southern tips of the island, providing you optimal chances to witness the remarkable array of creatures who call this spectacular yet forbidding environment home: whales, walruses, Svalbard reindeer, seabirds by the thousands, and that most iconic of Arctic residents, the polar bear. In addition to opportunities to observe wildlife, this itinerary allows you time to explore the vast tundra, and appreciate the natural beauty of the surprisingly colorful Arctic wilderness. Come aboard the Ultramarine for an extraordinary High Arctic adventure.
