Ursus maritimus
King of the Arctic

Tour description:

This trip goes to the magnificent east coast, where the nature is untouched and the land frozen solid. A view that is hard to describe. You don’t want to miss this amazing experience.

There is about 3000 polar bears in Svalbard during the winter months. However, it is not easy to spot one of these fantastic creatures. The best chance of seeing one, is at the east coast of Spitsbergen. To get there we need to drive through one of the largest valleys of Svalbard and across the glaciers towards the east. At the top of the glaciers we will stop to admire the view of Barents- and Edgeøya.

After a long, but easy ride, we will arrive at the east coast. Here, we need to be on guard. This is the realm of the Polar Bear. We don’t have permission to track down polar bears, but if we use our binoculars we might have an opportunity to observe this majestic creature from a distance.

Ocean ice and huge icebergs as far as the eyes can see, and enormous glacier fronts that protrudes from the sea, is a unique sight. Here we will enjoy the deafening silence and the magnificence of nature. This is Svalbard.
