Northern polar cruise to Spitsbergen

Discover the icy Spitsbergen. A trip could start in Norway and make a first stop at Bear Island in the western Barents Sea where many birds live. At the southern tip of Spitsbergen, you can visit South Spitsbergen National Park and marvel at the impressive fjords and glacier fronts like the Hornsund Fjord. In the north is the Northwest Spitsbergen National Park where many whale hunters used to work in the past. The area is still frequented by numerous species of whales. On a Spitsbergen trip you can visit the international science station Ny-Alesund. It is an old mining town that was the starting point for many expeditions to the North Pole.
