Explore a world of endless daylight where polar bears, beluga whales and walruses can be spotted among the breathtaking Arctic landscapes of fjords, tundra and glaciers

Norway's Svalbard archipelago is the Arctic wilderness at its best, and this 12-day cruise with specialists Aurora Expeditions lets you experience these islands in all their rugged beauty.

You'll explore sprawling tundra covered in colourful wildflowers, push through pack ice and glaciers to find walruses and bearded seals, and enjoy the spectacular sights of the magnificent Norwegian fjords.

An experienced expedition team will be travelling with you, and they'll use their expertise to design a special day-to-day itinerary, choosing the best options based on the weather, sea conditions and likely wildlife encounters.

One of the most exciting parts of a trip to Svalbard is the chance to encounter majestic polar bears in their natural habitat. Your expedition team is just as keen as you to find them - and they will be on the look out for these incredible creatures at all times.

You'll be staying for 10 nights aboard The Greg Mortimer, a ship specially designed for adventurous expedition cruising. Its sleek, modern design ensures you'll be comfortable for the length of your voyage, and observation platforms guarantee incredible wildlife sightings. Plus there's a sophisticated restaurant and wellness centre on board.
