The remote Svalbard archipelago, halfway between the north pole and mainland Norway, features spectacular scenery. Jagged snow-covered mountains, icy tundra, rugged cliffs and blue glaciers jostle for your attention. The largest island is Spitsbergen and the archipelago is dotted with fascinating small settlements, including former whaling stations and research centres. Wildlife is abundant. There is a great chance of spotting polar bears, walruses, colonies of sea birds, foxes, reindeer, seals and whales. Expedition cruises around the whole archipelago are possible in the summer months when the pack ice breaks up.
