What to expect

This exceptional journey to Franz Josef Land is as special and genuine as the place itself. Starting in Longyearbyen in the territory of Svalbard, we cross the icy, wildlife-rich Barents Sea to the Russian High Arctic. In Franz Josef Land we explore unique landscapes, wildlife, and history in one of the wildest and most distant areas of the Arctic.

Back in Svalbard, we explore gorgeous fjords and islands on the northwestern coast of Spitsbergen. Here we can expect to see the full range of Arctic wildlife in one of the world’s most amazing polar deserts.

Franz Josef Land, part of the vast Arctic National Park, is a nature sanctuary. Polar bears, walrus, endangered bowhead whales and other Arctic wildlife can be spotted around the archipelago.

There are huge colonies of nesting seabirds on the steep cliffs such as dovekies, guillemots and rare ivory gulls. The daylight hours are 24/7, which allows us to explore the wildlife in this unique polar ecosystem at any time.

This Arctic adventure includes seeing local animals, like reindeer, Arctic fox, millions of seabirds, numerous marine mammal species and a high concentration of polar bears and glacial mountains and coastal plains where we will also visit the historical sites and the Arctic research community of Ny Ålesund.

Please note: Itinerary, landings, and all other activities during the cruise depend strongly on ice and weather conditions and are subject to the decisions of the expedition leader and the captain of the vessel.
