Fully escorted by Peter Jones ARPS DPAGB LSINWP
Depart UK to Longyearbyen O/N
Before embarking there will be an opportunity to visit the parish church the polar museum and art gallery which are all well worth visiting, while we stay in the small town of Longyearbyen and the surrounding country side, we will be able to explore for some of the Arctic flora which also can be found along with the possible sighting of Arctic Fox, Reindeer and Arctic Birds.
In the late afternoon we will board our ship and set sail out of Longyearbyen.
We will set off to sail to 80 degrees north well beyond the Arctic Circle and attempting to sail around the islands of Svalbard. Where snow capped mountains rise high above the pack ice.
But it’s the wildlife that makes this adventurous expedition so exciting seeing huge colonies of Kittiwakes, Little Auks and Brunnich’s Guillemots thronging along the cliffs and shores.
Passing cobalt blue glaciers watching out for Walrus’s wallowing in the waters, and Whales which can be found in the deeper waters.
Looking out for the Arctic Fox, who is often seen searching along the shores and beneath the cliffs of bird colonies for fallen eggs or chicks, along with the Reindeer grazing on the slopes.
Of course we will search most of all for the mighty Polar Bear occasionally found hunting on the ice flows for their favorite meal the Seal. (We have not yet failed to find Polar Bears).
Having some 24 hours of daylight, the time will be maximized amongst this breathtaking Arctic scenery, whether by, on foot, zodiac or on our state of the art ice strengthened ship.
