Polar bears of Svalbard – up close and in the utmost of comfort and style on our 12 person luxury motor expedition vessel.
This 12 person luxury expedition vessel specifically designed to travel in Arctic conditions has 6 staterooms – each with its own private bath. We will depart Longyearbyen and explore the west coast of Svalbard in search of the wonders of wildlife and ice that it is ready to reveal. Able to go where large expedition vessels cannot, and free to explore and stay how long we like in any location this will be Svalbard on your schedule. Zodiac boats are included and allow us to make shore or ice landings to get us just that little bit closer.
Svalbard is a vast, glaciated archipelago dominated by wild, pointed mountain ranges – often referred to by the name of its largest island, Spitsbergen. Our classic expedition ship exclusively carries just 12 passengers, assuring you the best possible experience. Welcome to a magic world of midnight sun and pack ice, of glittering glaciers and abundant wildlife.
To many people, an expedition cruise to Svalbard is a life-changing experience. The overwhelming scenery, extraordinary wildlife and unpredictable encounters with animals such as polar bears and walruses are simply very special. Not to forget the delicious meals and the comfortable cabins onboard the expedition cruise ship, with its warm and friendly atmosphere.
Travelling on this intimate and luxuriously appointed expedition vessel with Arctic Kingdom allows you to enjoy the amazing Arctic wilderness without in a virtual private experience. A curious mind and a sense for nature and wildlife is all you need!
Few people ever set foot in these areas, but we make sure that everyone soon feels comfortably at home. Travelling in a small group is the best way to explore and to tread carefully in the unique and fragile environment. A Zodiac cruise along a mighty glacier is an experience to be shared by everyone at the same time, and these safe and solid little boats are the perfect way to get ashore almost anywhere in this Arctic wonderland.
As an expedition cruise passenger you must be on standby for action at all times. Sometimes you may be woken up in the early morning or even in the middle of the bright night as we sail past a glorious iceberg on a smooth sea – or because a polar bear has been spotted on the ice. Chances are good that you will see some of the more than 2,500 to 3,000 polar bears that inhabit Svalbard.
