Cruising and exploring Svalbard
Day 2 to 8

Svalbard is the northernmost tip of Europe and, a few research bases aside, its settlements are the northernmost permanently inhabited spots on the planet. Located between the 76° and 81° parallels, they are far more northerly than any part of Alaska and all but a few of Canada's Arctic islands. In fact, they would be permanently locked in by ice if not for the moderating influence of the Gulf Stream, and it is this comparative warmth that makes them habitable. The islands cover a total of 62,050 km2, the largest of which are Spitsbergen, Nordaustlandet and Edgeøya .
This wondrous archipelago is a land of dramatic snow-drowned peaks and glaciers, vast icefields and forbidding icebergs.
It is an elemental place where the seemingly endless Arctic night and the perpetual sunlight of summer carry a deeper kind of magic. One of Europe's last great wildernesses, this is also the domain of more polar bears than people, a terrain rich in epic legends of polar exploration.

Norway & Svalbard - Bear Island - Luxury Charter Itinerary | C&N
Bear Island
Day 9

Bjornøya (or Bear Island) is the southernmost island of the Norwegian Svalbard archipelago.
The island is located in the western part of the Barents Sea, approximately halfway between Spitsbergen and the North Cape.
The only indigenous land mammals are a few Arctic foxes. Despite its name, Bear Island is not a permanent residence of polar bears, although many arrive with the expanding pack ice in the winter. Occasionally, a bear will stay behind when the ice retreats in spring and remain through the summer months.
Bear Island offers spectacular landscapes with amazing sea cliffs and caves, that can be visited by tender.

Norway & Svalbard - North Cape - Luxury Charter Itinerary | C&N
North Cape
Day 10

From Bear Island, cruise to the North Cape or Nordkapp. The Nordkapp is a 307m high cliff rising above the Arctic Ocean. Nordkapp is promoted as the northernmost point of Europe.
This is however not true; the neighbouring point, Knivskjellodden, is actually 1,457m (4780 ft) further north, which can also be visited, weather permitting.
Pay a visit to the Sami people who are the only indigenous people in Scandinavia that are recognized and protected under the international conventions of indigenous peoples, and are hence one of the northernmost indigenous people of Europe.
Their best-known means of livelihood is semi-nomadic reindeer herding.

Troms County
Day 13

Continue cruising south into the Troms County. Due to the long distance to the more densely populated areas of the continent, this is one of the least polluted areas of Europe. Troms has a very rugged and indented coastline facing the Norwegian Sea. However, the large and mountainous islands along the coast provide an excellent sheltered waterway on the inside. Take the tender or kayak among the thousands of islands. This region is also great for hiking and fishing, and encounters with wildlife such as Otters, Harbour Porpoises, Ptarmigan, Sea Eagles and Lynx. Also recommended is a visit to Tromsø. In this modern city, nature and culture go hand in hand. Tromsø - has many activities on offer, from an aquarium and several quality museums, to the world's northernmost botanical garden.
