Midnight sun, endless tundra, polar bears, and walruses – experience the magic of the Arctic, located at the northernmost part of the planet. Take advantage of Scenic Eclipse’s discovery elements and see even more via Zodiac, kayak, snow shoes and submarine*.

Circumnavigate the wild, frozen lands of the Arctic in absolute comfort with this 12-day cruise on board the pioneering Scenic Eclipse. With its rugged glaciers, sweeping tundra, and remarkable native predators – including the Polar bear, Arctic fox, and the wolf – the Svalbard Archipelago is an untouched wilderness prime for the adventure of a lifetime.

Throughout your journey, our Discovery Team will be on hand to ensure each day brings unforgettable experiences and rare moments, introducing the natural wonders of the Arctic with knowledge and expertise. The ship’s size and technological capabilities mean you can enjoy close encounters with a huge collection of natural spectacles – from a glacier calving at the exquisite Monocobreen Glacier to whale watching experiences in the waters of Spitsbergen.

Navigating the archipelago clock-wise, you’ll experience beautiful bays and stunning fjords like Hornsund, choosing from an extensive collection of Scenic Freechoice excursions designed to bring you closer to breath-taking natural encounters. Soar above the tundra via helicopter*, or negotiate deep, frozen lakes via kayak or Zodiac – the choice is yours with Scenic Eclipse.

Meals included: Dinner
Day 3
Svalbard Archipelago

The Svalbard archipelago is one of the world’s northernmost inhabited areas with rugged glaciers and frozen tundras waiting to be explored. Due to her smaller size, technological capabilities and environmental controls, our Discovery Yacht will take you on an in-depth exploration of this fragile and remote region with minimal impact. The extraordinary nature of this part of the world dictates the flexible sailing schedule. Your experienced Captain and Discovery Leaders will carefully plan each day’s activities based on the conditions.

Scenic Eclipse cruises during the prime time for wildlife spotting, and there will be many opportunities to see the dominant predators including the Polar bear, who number as many as 3,000 roaming the sea ice, as well as the Arctic fox and wolf. Marine species abound including the carefully protected walrus with its characteristic tusks and several species of whales. Hunted almost out of existence in a region now transformed into a dedicated conservation area, your encounters with these giants of the sea will be a memory to treasure. Your crew will navigate close to some of the most beautiful glaciers such as the Monacobreen Glacier on Svalbard and the 14th of July Glacier in northwestern Spitsbergen where one of the most astonishing experiences will be the chance to witness a glacier calving. There will also be the chance to cruise some secluded bays and stunning fjords like Hornsund on the western side of the southernmost tip of Spitsbergen Island as well as spotting the many species of birdlife that are present during the short Arctic summer.

Each day the Discovery Leaders will schedule things so that even when you’re on board you’ll have plenty to keep you occupied from entertaining presentations to documentaries and more. There will be time for you to relax in your suite, watch the live streaming on your TV from the exterior cameras, and tempt your palate as you explore the extensive range of dining options.

Freechoice
