Arctic Expedition

June 16 to June 26, 2021

From $6,995 Per Person

Europe’s last great wilderness, the extraordinary High Arctic lands of the Svalbard archipelago summon awe and adventure like few places on earth. Journey to 80 degrees North where the human impact is slight and magnificent ice formations exert a mythical pull on the imagination.

Follow in the footsteps of Vikings, explorers and scientists as you experience the Arctic’s sublime landscapes at the best time of year, when the region is bathed in the magical light of the Midnight Sun. Join this once-in-a-lifetime, 11-day program and navigate pristine fjords, see stunning views of glimmering glaciers, land by Zodiac for Arctic ice walks and search for rare Arctic wildlife, including the King of the Arctic— the polar bear—walruses, whales, elusive Artic foxes, reindeer and several species of Arctic seabirds.

Enjoy Five-Star accommodations aboard the Ice Class, eco-friendly LAustral, the finest expedition ship to cruise these Arctic waters. The ship features 95% private balcony Staterooms along with spacious observation lounges and open-air decks conducive to optimum viewing and it is ideal for cruising fjords inaccessible to larger vessels. An expert Arctic Expedition Team will accompany you on board and during Zodiac excursions to explore the natural beauty of this untouched wilderness up close.
