9 Days - MS Sjoveien
Join the classic 12-passenger ship M/S Sjøveien on a true Arctic adventure through Svalbard’s magnificent wilderness! In May, Svalbard is characterised by a wonderful purity and offers breathtaking sceneries. The fairytale winter landscape is dominated by sparkling ice formations, snow covered mountains, fjord ice and pastel coloured skies. The polar bear yearlings venture out for the first time, the Arctic foxes and the Svalbard reindeer still wear their winter fur and seals and walruses can often be seen resting on the fjord ice. The little
auks and the Brünnich’s guillemots have returned to their summer nests and the bird cliffs are teeming with life.
We stay one night in Longyearbyen and then spend seven nights on board the expedition ship exploring this Arctic pearl that has fascinated explorers for centuries. We cruise along glistening glaciers, go ashore to enjoy the unique nature and keep a lookout for Svalbard's iconic wildlife.
