MV Togo - 12 Guests

Frozen Svalbard Cruise

Join a Svalbard expedition cruise on a small ship with 12 guests. Experience the magical wonder of Svalbard as it emerges from winter. As we head up the north coast of Spitsbergen we will land on frosty shores and witness beautiful snow-covered mountains from the warmth of an expedition vessel. The exact route will be determined by the sea ice conditions which is all part of the spirit of adventure of exploration.



HIGHLIGHTS

This Svalbard expedition cruise is aimed at anyone with a passion for exploring the Arctic with a small group of like-minded individuals on a comfortable small ship cruise and include :

Amazing Wildlife
We will visit areas where walruses haul out, encounter reindeer and Arctic foxes on land, observe whales and other marine life and explore coasts where polar bears are known to roam.

Stunning Scenery
We will encounter mighty glaciers, cruise tranquil steep-sided fjords and spend time outside exploring the beautiful untouched wilderness. 

Expedition Vessel With 12 Guests
We believe the best way to experience an environmentally sensitive place such as the Arctic is with a small group of travellers. With the new expedition cruise ships now taking over 300 passengers, we believe smaller is better.

Expedition Leader and Guide
An aspect of our journeys is to learn about the place you are visiting. Our onboard guides are the core of what we do and will share their passion and knowledge of Svalbard throughout the trip. We offer the best guide to guest ratio available.

Zodiac landing craft for shore landings
Shore landings are the essence of every expedition and your guides will take you exploring on a daily basis. The vessel is equipped with landing craft that can be used to reach remote beaches so you can experience the wilderness firsthand.

Climate Compensated
Caring for the environment is what we do. For every Svalbard expedition cruise, we run we plant trees in Greenland to offset the emissions. As a member of AECO we follow strict guidelines to ensure we cause minimal disturbance to wildlife.

ITINERARY

Day 1 : Longyearbyen
The Svalbard expedition cruise departs from Longyearbyen, the most northerly town in the world. Embarkation is in the afternoon at the port of Longyearbyen a short walk from the town. After a welcome, our expedition leader will do an introduction outlining the plan for the voyage based on local sea ice conditions which vary year on year.  As we cast off we will wave goodbye to civilisation as we head off into Svalbard’s frozen wilderness to spend the next 7 days exploring.

Days 2 and 3 : Isfjord & Prins Karls Foreland
Our first area of exploration is Isfjord which is home to some magnificent glaciers. Working with the sea ice conditions we plan to do a shore landing by Zodiac landing craft so you can enjoy the frozen scenery shore. If the conditions are good we may have the opportunity to do a short hike using snowshoes. As we sail out of Isfjord we will keep a lookout on deck for whales that are known to frequent this area. We then plan to land on Prins Karls Foreland at a walrus haul-out area with another opportunity to do some exploration ashore.

Days 4 and 5 : North-West Coast, Kongsfjord & Ny Alesund
We will sail north along the west coast of Spitsbergen keeping a lookout for wildlife including polar bears that inhabit the area. We will do regular shore landings with our expert guides to visit different places of interest including glaciers, and do short hikes ashore in the beautiful nature. The ice conditions will likely permit us to visit the scientific research settlement of Ny Alesund, the most northerly settlement on earth, and visit the museum. We will explore the area around Kongsfjord and sail as close as we can get to one of Svalbard’s largest glaciers on the Lillyhook fjord.

Days 6 and 7 : Southern Spitsbergen
On the final two days we will follow the compass south and explore the region along the southwest coast of Spitsbergen. If conditions allow we will sail as far south as Hornsund where we will spend some time doing shore landings and exploring the beautiful coast.

Day 8 : Longyearbyen
After breakfast, we say our goodbyes and disembark at the port of Longyearbyen after making new friends and sharing an exciting adventure together.

The above itinerary is a guide only. A part of a Svalbard expedition cruise is the flexibility to take advantage of the weather and ice conditions. Our expedition leader will make sure you see as much a possible.
