Make the most of your vacation with a shore and land excursion that appeals to your interests. Knowledgeable, professional guides lead all excursions and offer special insights into the culture, history, wildlife, and geology of each destination. Discover first-hand how islanders went about the business of growing, harvesting and refining sugar in 18th century Barbados. Take an invigorating mush across a snow-covered glacier aboard an Alaskan dogsled. Or stroll through the maze of tiny streets in Mykonos, the birthplace of Apollo.
Your guide will pick you up at the pier and you will start your guided walk in Longyearbyen. Longyearbyen is situated between high mountains in the Advent Valley. We will stop for a visit at Svalbard Museum, where you will learn about the history of the archipelago and you will understand the relationship between nature, culture, landscape and environment in the Arctic. After the visit you will continue your walk. Your guide will tell you about the local flora and fauna and maybe if you are lucky, you will be able to spot some reindeers in the city center! Return to the pier on foot.
