Svalbard Polar Bear Expedition 2015
Written By Admin
Join us for a 10 night cruise aboard the classic M/S Stockholm in search of Polar Bears and other arctic wildlife in the remote and stunning Svalbard.
15 – 25th May 2015
MAXIMUM NUMBER OF GUESTS
12 – Only 1 male share berth remains, book now.
Day 1 – The ship will depart in the afternoon, allowing people to fly from Oslo on the same day, if they wish. Anyone who opts to spend the previous night in Longyearbyen will be provided transport from their hotel to the ship.
Day 2-10 – During our trip, we will try to see as much as possible of Svalbard within the framework of a very flexible itinerary, given variability in the weather and the movements of sea-ice. We will constantly be on the lookout for wildlife, and will spend time in the pack-ice as conditions allow looking for polar bears, walrus, bearded seals and beluga. We will attempt to visit some of Svalbard’s tidewater glaciers and walrus haul outs. And visit its seabird rookeries, where we will see guillemots (murres), razorbill, puffins and kittiwakes. We will also deploy the Zodiac as often as possible, for more detailed exploration and for going ashore, to walk, study the tundra flora and to look for reindeer and Arctic foxes. Our expert guides will be with our guests all the time, providing information, interpreting what we see in the field and making sure that whatever we do is safe and sustainable. We will have a broad range of lectures on offer and we will have a democratic approach to making the most of specific conditions and wildlife viewing opportunities. If we have an option to accommodate something unforeseen, we will not try to fulfil an itinerary at the expense of an extraordinary experience.
Day 11 – We disembark the vessel in the morning, in Longyearbyen. Guests departing Svalbard the same day will be taken to the airport for the afternoon flight to Oslo.
