Elemental landscapes and unique wildlife

  • 12-day expedition cruise from Oslo, beginning in Longyearbyen, attempting a full circumnavigation of the Svalbard archipelago.

  • Look out for Arctic wildlife, like whales, reindeer and polar bears, as we travel deep into this beautiful, remote territory.

  • Sail through hidden channels and dramatic fjords past rugged islands, sparkling glaciers and towering mountains.

The world's edge

Your adventure begins in Oslo with a flight to Longyearbyen, the world’s northernmost town. An overnight stay gives you time to explore before we attempt to cross the 80th Parallel North. Explore Svalbard's stunning nature reserves, where seabirds like Brunnich’s Guillemots and kittiwakes nest on the soaring cliffs.

Journey of discovery

Watch out for reindeer and polar bears on land, and whales and seals in the water, as we head for the fjords of Hornsund. Learn about the history of Arctic whalers and explorers as we continue to Isfjorden, before returning to Longyearbyen.

Our Svalbard Attempts are expeditions where we, in true expedition style, challenge the elements and the ice-edge of the Arctic Ocean, to circumnavigate this remote archipelago – in a safe way. Several alternative routes combined with our deep knowledge of the area and flexibility are key factors to giving you the most amazing experience.
