Northern EU Cruises NORTHERN EUROPE CRUISES

Svalbard Cruises

Cruises to Svalbard typically depart from one of the cities in Northern Europe, such as Bergen, Kiel, Reykjavik, Rotterdam, Southampton, Tromso, which are among the most popular departure ports. Cruises to Svalbard take passengers into an ocean at the furthest edge of the globe. When you take a cruise to Svalbard, you'll get to see a stunningly pristine environment of glaciers and icy peaks. The island of Svalbard is the largest of the four islands that make up the Norwegian archipelago of Svalbard. The other three islands are Nordaustlandet, Barentsoya, and Edgeoya. Polar bears are known to roam free in this region, which is characterized by its pristine fjords and rugged mountain peaks. Sailing on an cruise here in summer increases your chances of possibly spotting polar bears along the shores or across the ice. In the summer, the islands receive two types of cruise ship visitors. Those who arrive by large cruise liners on long voyages often make a single call at one of the three permanent settlements, at either Longyearbyen, Ny-Alesund (a research station), or Barentsburg (a Russian mining camp), before continuing cruising to the rest of the fjords and coastline. Spitsbergen, located about 1,300 kilometers from the North Pole, is in perpetual darkness for four months of the year; however, beginning in April, the days begin to lengthen until sometime in June, when the sun never sets. This is ideal for tourists visiting Svalbard to see polar bears, as well as walruses, reindeer, arctic foxes, beluga whales, seals, and seabirds. Massive flocks of seabirds swoop and circle over their dramatic clifftop nesting sites. Take a voyage to Svalbard to see the stunning mountains that rise straight from the ocean as well as the blue ice and grinding glaciers. Each Svalbard cruise features a one-of-a-kind combination of thrilling activities and luxurious amenities, all of which are designed to make the most out of every moment.
