The goal of this expedition cruise is to sail as close as possible to the pack ice from the North Pole, the polar bear's favorite summer residence. How far north you can reach and the exact route up there will depend on the ice conditions. However, the many amazing locations along the west coast of Svalbard are for sure kept navigable by the warm Gulf Stream. On your way to Greenland you will cruise along the pack ice before continuing to the mysterious Jan Mayen island. From here it is onwards to Ittoqqortoormiit and the deep fjord system behind. Crossing the Denmark Strait to the capital of Iceland, Reykjavik before disembarking right in the city center. Enjoy the immense beauty of the Arctic on this adventure cruise among whales, walruses, polar bears and millions of seabirds. Experience high summer in the Arctic with Ocean Albatros - one of the few ice-class expedition ships built to withstand the North Pole’s pack ice.

I reached out to Polartours while researching options for an expedition cruise to Antarctica. I was impressed with their prompt and attentive follow-up! Natalya scheduled a video call immediately and while on the call took the time to carefully listen to my family's requirements and constraints. She then came back as promised within two days with a host of options for our consideration. Her follow through was terrific with relevant added details as needed and, of course, gentle reminders on looming deadlines. If the entire Polartours team is like her, you can do a lot worse than reaching out to them to plan out a once-in-a-lifetime adventure!
