"Everyone at TravelWild was super helpful, knowledgeable and friendly. The Spitsbergen cruise itself was incredible and exceeded all expectations!"  — J. S. 

Spitsbergen cruises offer one of the best opportunities—if not the best opportunity—to view polar bears in the wild. On many of our Spitsbergen cruises, we’ve watched polar bears hunting seals on the pack ice, swimming between ice floes, traveling with cubs and sparring with rivals over freshly caught prey. As they roam their crystalline kingdom, they do so amid a backdrop of rugged coastal mountains, expansive calving glaciers and open water leads. Overall, polar bear trips don’t get any better than this!

While the polar bear viewing is reason enough to join one of our Spitsbergen cruises, there is much, much more to see and do! Walruses, reindeer, arctic foxes, bearded, ringed and harp seals, Minke and, occasionally, humpback whales are among some of the Arctic wildlife you’re likely to see—often at very close range. We’ll board inflatable Zodiac boats and cruise along the foot of towering sea cliffs, home to tens of thousands of raucous seabirds. Commonly-seen bird species in Spitsbergen include Arctic terns, Arctic skuas, Atlantic puffins, thick-billed murres, dovekies, northern fulmars, long-tailed jaegers, little auks and more. All of these wildlife sightings are made in the relatively benign weather (and calm seas) of Spitsbergen’s summer.

There is no better way to experience the pristine beauty of the Arctic than on one of our Spitsbergen cruises. Be among the few lucky travelers to visit this spectacular realm of the polar bear!
