MS Spitsbergen - 156 Guests

Circumnavigating Svalbard - The Ultimate Expedition

12 Day Oslo/Longyearbyen to Longyearbyen/Oslo


The world's edge
Your adventure begins in Oslo with a flight to Longyearbyen, the world’s northernmost town. An overnight stay gives you time to explore before we attempt to cross the 80th parallel north. Explore Svalbard's stunning nature reserves, where seabirds such as Brunnich’s Guillemots and kittiwakes nest on the soaring cliffs.

Journey of discovery
On land, you’ll be keeping an eye out for reindeer and the elusive polar bear, while in the seas, whales and seals can be observed as we head for the fjords of Hornsund. Learn about the history of Arctic whalers and explorers as we continue to Isfjord, before returning to Longyearbyen.

    MS Spitsbergen (Expedition, 156-guests)

    MS Spitsbergen joined the Hurtigruten fleet in 2016. The ship features high technical standards as well as comfortable, modern public areas and cabins. The vessel's fresh Scandinavian design reflects a colour palette derived from the sea. She is modern and environmentally progressive, and further improvements have been planned that will reduce emissions and fuel consumption even more. The new ship's maneuverability and optimal size make her quite suitable for exploring polar waters.
