PONANT invites you to experience something exceptional - an expedition that will explore the Far North, discovering the immense open spaces of the polar Arctic and its ice floes that extend to the North Pole.

You will board the ship at Longyearbyen in Norway for an in-depth exploration of the Svalbard Archipelago during a 14-day expedition cruiseDuring your expedition at sea, you will be in the company of our specialist crew on board as well as an experienced PONANT expedition team.

Remote, mysterious, authentic... The history of the Svalbard Islands is exceptionally rich from Polar explorers to travellers just like you. Your ship will take you up close to vast landscapes that are coloured in polar hues: icebergs, icecaps and ice floes. You will also discover the exceptional flora and fauna that lives in these extreme conditions, where temperatures reach -30°C in winter.

You will next set sail to the vast Isfjorden, one of the largest fjords in Svalbard whose different branches reach right into the heart of the island of Spitsbergen. The Templefjord Nature Reserve, the Alkhornet cliff, home to a wide variety of birds, and the spectacular Nordenskiöld glacier, will also be among the highlights of your voyage.

Your ship will then sail towards the magnificent glaciers of Krossfjorden, and to the superb landscapes of the Nordvest-Spitsbergen National Park. The deep blue waters of its fjords surrounded by snow-capped mountains are home to many species of cetaceans while its islands, beaches and wide bays shelter the remains of old whaling stations and trappers’ cabins. 

You will then sail eastbound to reach the coasts of the Nordaust-Svalbard Nature Reserve, and Kvitoya Island, the eastern-most island of the archipelago, which means White Island, named after its large ice cover of more than 700 km2.

Perhaps you will also be lucky enough to be able to observe the emblematic species of the region, such as colonies of sea birds, walruses, polar bears and Arctic foxes, as you sail along the islands of Edgeøya (also known as Edge Island), in the Søraust-Svalbard Nature Reserve, which is the largest protected zone in Norway.

During this unforgettable expedition, our ship will sail to latitudes of 80° north and you will discover that unique feeling of having reached the top of the world.

Itinerary is subject to change according to port authorisations and government regulations. We are privileged guests in these remote lands where we are at the mercy of weather, ice, tidal and current conditions. Landings on particular sites and the observation of specific wildlife cannot be guaranteed. They vary from day to day, making each PONANT cruise a unique experience. The Captain and the Expedition Leader will make every effort to ensure that your experience is as rich as possible, while complying with the safety rules and instructions imposed by the AECO.
