Journey on an extraordinary expedition far beyond Svalbard, where you can follow in the footsteps of legendary polar explorers. Watch majestic polar bears hunting on the pack ice as you sail the Barents Sea and keep your binoculars out in hopes of spotting the bowhead whales that call this stretch of ocean their home. Discover unparalleled landscapes, seascapes dotted with beluga, minke and humpack whales, and experience the midnight sun from the bow of the M/V Sea Spirit.
