ITINERARY

Day 0: TRANSFER AIRPORT/HOTEL (CHARTER) GRAND HOTEL OSLO (CHARTER), Oslo, Norway

Day 1: TRANSFER HOTEL TO AIRPORT OSLO AIR CHARTER TO LONGYEARBYEN
Beautiful Oslo was named as 'Europe's Green Capital.' As Norway's largest city, it is a cosmopolitan hub with an abundance of world-class architecture, museums, restaurants and shopping. Oslo buzzes with energy, from its new neighborhoods to its cutting-edge food, fashion, art scene and famous museums. The Oslo Opera House is a magnificent architectural wonder, resembling a massive iceberg, while Frognerparken showcases the work of Norway's best-loved sculptor, Gustav Vigeland, in an open-air setting. The Astrup Fearnley Modern Art Museum is an exemplar of Oslo's modern metropolitan atmosphere. Yet the city maintains a refreshing closeness to nature that few other capital cities can match.

Founded in 1049 by King Harold Sigurdsson, Olso celebrates its long-standing traditional Norse heritage. Those with an interest in its history may discover the sprawling castle-fortress of Akershus Slott, strategically built along the shores of the fjord in 1299 by King Håkon V, or explore Vikingskipshuset with its preserved Viking long-ships dating from the year 1100.  

Day 1: Longyearbyen, Norway

TRANSFER AIRPORT/SHIP
Longyearbyen, the seat of the Governor of Svalbard, is located in a narrow valley along the shores of Adventfjorden a small tributary of Isfjord, the largest fjord system in Svalbard. It extends 100 kilometers (60 miles) into the island of Spitsbergen. Nine large tidewater glaciers, with a combined ice-front of 21 kilometers (13 miles), as well as dozens hanging glaciers drain into the fjord.

The town's 2,100 inhabitants exist in one of the most northern settlements on Earth, making their living by a combination of coal mining, education and tourism. Because of the town's extreme isolation, proximity to wildlife, and Svalbard's pristine environment, unique laws exist that are found in few other places. All individuals venturing outside of town are required to carry a rifle for protection against polar bears, possessing a cat is illegal, no one is allowed to be buried here and how much alcohol can be purchased each month is restricted.

Longyearbyen was named after the American industrialist John Longyear whose Arctic Coal Company began mining here in 1906.

Day 2: Svalbard Experience
The islands of Svalbard rise dramatically from the Arctic Ocean halfway between Norway's North Cape and the North Pole. They give eloquent evidence of Nature's slow but ceaseless industry, scored and corrugated by glaciers that still cover 60 percent of their mass. Stony, sentinel peaks soar above deeply carved fjords and sparkling bays. In summer, the sparse tundra vegetation erupts under the endless encouragement of the Midnight Sun. Migratory birds in their millions arrive from more southerly realms, to nest and breed and nurture their young on steep, striated cliffs, shingle beaches and tundra meadows. Elaborately-antlered reindeer graze the slopes. Arctic foxes and predatory gulls haunt the nursery edges, alert for opportunity. Seals and walruses haul out to join the breeding season, and patient polar bears patrol the rocky shorelines and floating ice, while whales roll and breach offshore, feeding on the sea's summer abundance.  Here and there, bleached testaments to past human endeavors endure: whalebones and weathered trypots from medieval whaling stations; the wind-sanded timbers of an expedition's launching site; a hut where someone whiled away a long-ago, dark winter. Riding in Zodiacs and paddling kayaks, observing from the decks and trekking on the islands themselves, we will experience and explore this isolated, unspoiled and breathtakingly beautiful place, as it revels in the endless days of its short, exuberant summer.
