Svalbard with Daniel J. Cox

Join Dan and Tanya for an 11-day voyage in Norway’s archipelago! The MV Polaris I is ideal for small group expeditions to discover remote locations in the great north that are inaccessible to the larger cruise ships. Polar bears create an unforgettable spectacle whether hunting seals on pack ice, shepherding cubs along the beach, or swimming near our Zodiacs. High above the Arctic Circle, we’ll explore deep fjords, polar deserts, tundra tinged with wildflowers, and vast glaciers calving into the sea. Summer in the Arctic! On foot and by Zodiac, we’ll be on the lookout for walrus, Arctic fox, and reindeer, and revel in millions of migratory birds, including little auks, guillemots, and puffin. The seas are alive with whales along with bearded and possibly ringed seals.
