Europe Arctic Cruise

Norway’s Fjords & Arctic Svalbard

On this 17-day Norway’s Fjords & Arctic Svalbard expedition, follow Norway’s fjord-carved coast, from the charming town of Bergen, past the North Cape to the ice and wildness of the Svalbard archipelago, for a perfect balance between the charmingly scenic and the spectacularly wild. Explore Tromso and Bear Island on the way to Svalbard in the high arctic, where polar bears prowl and walruses haul out on rocky shores. 

“The land divides us, the sea unites,” Norwegians have said for centuries. Here, the sea carves a 1,100-mile-long coastline (longer than the U.S. west coast), and on this expedition you’ll explore almost the full length of its varied contours, from the jaw droppingly lovely Norwegian fjordlands to the heart-pounding icescapes of Svalbard. 

The 126-guest National Geographic Endurance and 148-guest National Geographic Explorer offer active exploration via hiking, walking, kayaking and Zodiac riding amidst stunning scenery. Explore under the sure guidance of expedition leaders, an assistant expedition leader, veteran naturalists, a National Geographic photographer, plus a Lindblad-National Geographic certified photo instructor, a Global Perspectives guest speaker, an undersea specialist, a wellness specialist and a video chronicler. Their collective knowledge and passion paired with the unparallelled beauty of the Arctic region ensures an extraordinary experience on this once-in-a-lifetime Arctic cruise.
