Welcome to the Realm of the Polar Bear! Svalbard is one the most exciting areas in the world, home of the Svalbard Global Seed Vault, designed to store duplicates of seeds from seed collections around the globe.
In Svalbard you can experience reindeer outside your hotel room or see the polar fox as you walk around in the administrative center Longyearbyen (Longyear City). 60% of Svalbard is covered by glaciers and you can watch icebergs in many different shapes on the boat excursions in Isfjorden, and of course on the spectacular cruises taking you to more remote corners of the archipelago. Here the chances of seeing polar bears are usually good (but never guaranteed).
Hurtigruten Svalbard offer you the finest collection of adventure cruises and expeditions. For those who prefer to stay in Longyearbyen and choose day trips, we offer boat trips to Barentsburg and Pyramiden in the breathtakingly beautiful Isfjorden (meaning 'the Ice Fjord'), mountain treks, dog sledding, kayaking and several other activities. The snow mobile excursions will get you close to the Arctic nature. Svalbard is an adventure that you will remember your whole life.
