Summary

Cruise the Spitsbergen archipelago in search of the wildlife, stunning landscapes, and the whaling history of the region. At Smeerenburg you’ll visit a 17th century whaling station, followed by sailing to Sorgfjord which provides a chance for spotting walruses and yet more history. You’ll go ashore at Kapp Lee and may walk in Rosenbergdalen to search for reindeer. Another jaunt will take you to Homsund with its view of the glaciers and its opportunities to lock eyes on the Kings and Queens of the Arctic, the Polar Bear.

Remarks

Important!

All itineraries are for guidance only. Programs may vary depending on local ice, weather, and wildlife conditions. Landings are subject to site availabilities, permissions, and environmental concerns per AECO regulations. Official sailing plans and landing slots are scheduled with AECO prior to the start of the season, but the expedition leader determines the final plan. Flexibility is paramount for expedition cruises, and willingness to compromise on comfort is a basic requirement on board a historic sailing vessel. Important information about the use of sails: The vessel is equipped with sails to be used in good conditions (based on open sea, water depth, wind, and time allowance), but the use of sails is not guaranteed. The captain decides whether to use the sails or the engine. If sails are used, the crew will operate them. Guests must follow the safety instructions of the team. The average cruising speed for s/v Rembrandt van Rijn is 6.5 knots.
