Enjoy the feeling of gliding through the water in serene silence while admiring the sight of glaciers and mountains dappled in summer’s grass and flowers.


With sailings during the Midnight Sun, days of exploration get longer. Expect landing at isolated settlements, scenic beaches with historical artefacts, on tundras and more


Hike through spectacular fjords, mountains and glaciers at a time when the Midnight Sun is in the sky and Arctic flowers are in bloom. Extended hikes will also be offered as optional

Small Boat Cruising

At places where its difficult to dock the ship, the expedition will launch RIBs to take you on land, or simply cruise around icebergs, glaciers or ice floes, as part of your included experience

Northwest Spitsbergen

Scattered with islands, fjords and beaches, the ocean here can be full of drifting ice especially in the early season.

Forlandet and Isfjord National Park

One of the best regions to spot walrus, and the Svalbard reindeer or Arctic fox at the latter

South Spitsbergen National Park

Sail to the southernmost tip of Spitsbergen, promising varied landscape and geology. Ice being pushed into the fjord early in the season attracts polar bears to hunt on the floes

Polar Bear

Welcome to the land of the polar bear. From a safe distance, here you might catch a glimpse of one of these rare apex predators stalking a seal beside a glacier or swimming from one ice floe to another, multiple times during the journey


Catch sights of walrus diving for clams in the bays when sailing past 80º N , at North East Spitsbergen Nature Reserve or sunning themselves at the flat beaches of at Easter Svalbard Nature reserve

Nesting Birds

A haven for birds, providing prime annual breeding spots for 41 species of seabird. Keep your eyes peeled for Black Guillemots, Common Eiders, Brünnich's Guillemots, Glaucous gulls, Little Auks and many more


You might see bearded seals in a shallow bay or sunbathing on ice floes close to the glacier front of Monaco; or bearded seals while discovering Magdalenefjord in North West corner Spitsbergen

Svalbard Reindeer

Located all around the Archipelago, mainly on the non-glaciated parts. On Edgeøya and Barentsøya lives the largest densities of the animal, where we might sight them in groups of 2-4

Arctic Fox

Can be found all across Svalbard. In summer, look out for a shorter coat of brown or grey fur. This darker coat matches the rocks and plants of the summer tundra, providing camouflage when there’s less snowfall.

MV Sea Spirit

Enjoy an intimate atmosphere aboard this small expedition ship, with a capacity of just 114. Its ice-strengthened hull, ample deck space for wildlife viewing, & state-of-the-art fin stabilizers, make it ideal for polar expeditions

Bridge Visit

The captain & officers welcome you to visit them at the Bridge any time, to have a simple chit chat, discuss their life on board, their experience in polar regions or simply watch the views from the special angle.

Outdoor Bistro

The top deck of the ship features an outdoor bistro, with a jacuzzi, allowing you to enjoy the scenic views while you share meals with fellow travelers or simply sitting to have a hot chocolate
