Incredible flora and fauna – the Arctic’s finest | 12 days
Revel in the diversity of Svalbard’s coastline against a backdrop of spectacular glacier covered peaks. We’ll discover deep fjords in the west, fossil-rich desert plains in the east and seals and whales in the Arctic pack ice. There’s an excellent chance of seeing reindeer and polar bears, with wildflower walks across sweeping tundra, trapper camps and historic sites. Visit abandoned whaling settlements, search for walrus and arctic fox and observe millions of migratory birds, including little auks, guillemots and puffin.

Fiona’s travel tips
DID YOU KNOW: Svalbard has more than 20 per cent of the world’s population of polar bears?
WEATHER: Strong winds can occur in late autumn and winter, but are rare from late March to mid-October. Snow and sleet are not uncommon in winter.
TOP TIP: Book a Scotland to Spitsbergen voyage and then the consecutive North Spitsbergen one. It’s fun to leave the UK by ship and you will get a discount off the second voyage.
