Day 2 Svalbard Archipelago
Freechoice: Our cruises include a vast range of tailored discovery experiences. Equipped with a fleet of Zodiacs, kayaks, snow shoes, depending on ice and weather conditions, you’ll enjoy daily excursions to discover the wildlife, marine life and their predators.
Scenic Eclipse cruises during the prime time for wildlife spotting, and there will be many opportunities to see the dominant predators including the Polar bear, who number as many as 3,000 roaming the sea ice, as well as the Arctic fox and wolf. Marine species abound including the carefully protected walrus with its characteristic tusks and several species of whales. Hunted almost out of existence in a region now transformed into a dedicated conservation area, your encounters with these giants of the sea will be a memory to treasure. Your crew will navigate close to some of the most beautiful glaciers such as the Monacobreen Glacier on Svalbard and the 14th of July Glacier in northwestern Spitsbergen where one of the most astonishing experiences will be the chance to witness a glacier calving. There will also be the chance to cruise some secluded bays and stunning fjords like Hornsund on the western side of the southernmost tip of Spitsbergen Island as well as spotting the many species of birdlife that are present during the short Arctic summer.
Each day the Discovery Leaders will schedule things so that even when you’re on board you’ll have plenty to keep you occupied from entertaining presentations to documentaries and more. There will be time for you to relax in your suite, watch the live streaming on your TV from the exterior cameras, and tempt your palate as you explore the extensive range of dining options.
