Women of the Artic Expedition


Today you will arrive in Longyearbyen, ready to board your expedition ship in the afternoon. Meet Kate and your fellow passengers, settle in, and set sail through the spectacular fjords of the Svalbard Archipelago on the adventure of a lifetime!


Spend your time exploring Svalbard in search of wildlife and spectacular scenery. Your expedition team will be on hand to teach you about the wildlife you encounter along the way, as you explore ice-filled fjords, witness bird cliffs with colonies of seabirds numbering in the tens of thousands, and search for the mighty polar bear hunting along the shores and pack ice. Your exact itinerary will depend on the weather conditions, the density or scarcity of the pack ice, and the wildlife-viewing opportunities. You may spend time hiking across the green tundra in search of Arctic fox and reindeer, enjoying zodiac cruises around huge glaciers and icebergs, or simply watching for whales and bears from the deck of the Freya. Throughout your journey you will be exploring with a fantastic group of women and men and making history at the same time.


After arriving back into Longyearbyen overnight, you’ll disembark the ship after breakfast and say your farewells. Depending on the time of your flight, you may have time in town to buy some last-minute souvenirs before you begin your journey home.
