      From polar deserts to vast glaciers, the natural landscape here is as varied as the wildlife.

      When cruising this Arctic Circle island, your expedition team will ensure you get ashore as often as possible and don't miss out on anything interesting.

      The island offers plenty of wildlife photography opportunities. Svalbard's wildlife is well protected and largely uninhabited by humans, it is one of the best places in the world to see polar bears in their natural habitat.
