Travel Route

Itinerary

Svalbard is situated at about 80 degrees north, so we schedule the expedition in accordance with prevailing weather and ice conditions. The map on this page shows the estimated route for this expedition. We plan to sail all the way up to the drifting ice edge, wherever nit will be at that time, and also visit the northern parts of Nordaustlandet.

Day 0 We always recommend to arrive Longyearbyen at least one day in advance.

Day 1 Departure from Longyearbyen through Isfjorden. Heading north to the drifting ice.

Day 2-7 Looking for wildlife around Sjuøyane and up in the drifting ice. Visiting Storøya if weather is good. If time and good possibilities for finding wildlife we sail down Hinlopen on our way back.

Day 9 Leaving the ship after breakfast and prepare the travel home.

We will probably have time to spend with some Arctic Foxes during this expedition. August is the perfect time to experience these funny creatures.
