Nature at its best: sea kayaking the Norwegian Arctic
11 day voyage 8–9 days kayaking
Kayaking amongst the wonder and beauty of Spitsbergen, in the Norwegian High Arctic is something very special! Life explodes during the brief Arctic summer, and sea kayaks are a superb way to see walrus, reindeer, and millions of migratory birds. Our circumnavigation of Spitsbergen (Svalbard) takes us within 600 miles of the North Pole, well into the realm of the polar bear. Using the mother-ship as a base, and with 24 hours of daylight, we make the most of each opportunity on this Arctic kayak trip. Hikes over flower-speckled tundra are a pleasing contrast to paddles through narrow ice-choked fjords. The fossil-rich polar desert in the east, towering mountains in the west, and panoramic glacial vistas provide stunning backdrops to Svalbard’s rich Arctic wildlife, and the remains of 16th and 17th century whaling activities.
