A one week holiday sailing along the coastline of Svalbard, walking and snowshoeing in the arctic wilderness
From our sailing ship, the beautiful Rembrandt van Rijn, we can access small remote fjords, rugged peaks and isolated settlements of the Svalbard archipelago. Each day we disembark and have different walk or snowshoe options, each allowing us to truly experience this arctic wilderness, witnessing the simply stunning views of this unique landscape. This remote area has a freshness and beauty seldom found elsewhere; we will soon be in awe of this tremendous land. Sailing to a new location on most evenings, we are also on the lookout for wildlife such as walrus, seals, arctic fox, abundant birdlife and the undeniably impressive polar bear. It is truly an honour to see any of these incredible animals in their natural environment. With short and long walk options each day, this is a polar cruise holiday with a difference, one for the more adventurous!
