About this trip

Travel with Jim Falk as you voyage through the pristine beauty of the Arctic Circle on this unique 11-day itinerary featuring an extraordinary seven-night cruise on the Five-Star, eco-friendly L’Austral, exclusively chartered for your expedition. Visit during the region’s most enchanting season, when shimmering ice basks in the midnight sun’s constant glow. Sail the shores of secluded Spitsbergen, the jewel of Norway’s seldom visited Svalbard archipelago; see glaciers crease and calve in luminous blues; and look for the “King of the Arctic,” the polar bear. Survey an ethereal topography of red sandstone mountain ranges, lush green tundra and awe-inspiring ice formations and enjoy Zodiac excursions led by a team of expert naturalists in diverse, serene terrains, where remarkable wildlife—including whales, walruses, seals, Svalbard reindeer, Arctic foxes, northern fulmars and Arctic terns—roam freely. The program’s round-trip flights to Longyearbyen originates in Paris; spend one night each in the deluxe Hilton Paris Charles De Gaulle Airport Hotel before and after your Arctic cruise. Extend your expedition with the Normandy/Rouen Pre-Expedition and Paris/Giverny Postlude Options.
