Life explodes during the brief Arctic summer and sea kayaks are a superb way to view walrus, seals, reindeer and millions of migratory birds.

Our circumnavigation of Spitsbergen (Svalbard) takes us within 600 miles of the North Pole, well into the realm of the polar bear. Hikes over flower-speckled tundra are a pleasing contrast to paddles through narrow ice-choked fjords.

The fossil-rich polar desert in the east, towering mountains in the west, and panoramic glacial vistas provide stunning backdrops to Svalbard's rich Arctic wildlife, and remnants from 16th and 17th century whaling activities.
