Remote, mysterious, grandiose, wild and extreme, Spitsbergen is a land forged by ice, wind and sea. Gigantic glaciers descend from the summits of majestic multi-colored mountains in the cold waters of austere Greenland sea, abundant with ice. Animals who do not know humans, inhabit this land and its numerous fjords: wild reindeer grazing in endless tundra, seals and walruses basking on the rocky shores and ice ﬂoes, curious polar fox keeping close to bird colonies, and the whole world is reigned by the polar bear, the king of the Arctic. This trip gives an insight to Svalbard in summer: in only 6 days, you travel along the island and visit all stunning bays and fjords of Spitsbergen, inaccessible otherwise than by open boat Polarcirkel. You follow the traces of the famous Arctic explorers and hunters, stay in the ghost settlement, and ﬁnally relax in comfort.
