Explore the stunning west coast of Svalbard aboard the M/S Polarfront for this special June departure, exclusive to 12 passengers, this intimate ship charter focuses on sightings of the amazing polar bear and other Arctic wildlife of Svalbard.
Polarfront will sail through the ice, heading north and west in search of pack ice and wildlife. This trip ensures that wildlife opportunities are at the forefront, with access to two zodiacs on the ship to make landings across the Archipelagos.
With weather and ice conditions permitting, sail into the Bay of the Cross to witness glaciers falling into the sea, step off onto the shores of Magdalen Bay, a 10km long fjord surrounded by alpine peaks, where you will begin your hike to the great glacier, come face-to-face with the breath-taking Monaco Glacier, observe Svalbard's rich history and spectacular landscapes at Smeerenburg fjord and hike to beautiful panoramas over King's Bay.
By not having a fixed itinerary we can ensure that we put you in the right place at the right time to maximise wildlife encounters.
This morning you are free to explore Longyearbyen at your leisure. Boarding is at 5pm. Once on board, you will be shown to your cabin and be given time to settle in before preparing to set sail through the spectacular ice fjord this evening.
Spend the next seven days aboard the M/S Polarfront exploring the Svalbard Archipelago in search of Arctic wildlife.
The itinerary for this voyage focuses on the spectacular fjords, coasts and islands of Western Spitsbergen, the main island of the Svalbard archipelago. This area contains Svalbard’s most impressive scenery and some of the Arctic’s best wildlife viewing opportunities including Cross Bay, Magdalen Bay, Monaco Glacier, King's Bay and Smeerenburg Fjord. Our exact schedule and route will be shaped by the weather and ice conditions we encounter.
Polar bears and other iconic Arctic animals can be spotted anytime, anywhere in our area of exploration. There are also plenty of possibilities for world-class hiking through wild polar bear landscapes with fascinating geology. Wildflowers are especially abundant during this time. By not having a fixed itinerary we can ensure that we put you in the right place at the right time to maximise wildlife encounters.
