Wildlife holidays in Spitsbergen

Two words: polar bears. Spitsbergen is one of the best places in the world to spot the king of bears. Wildlife watching holidays in Spitsbergen are best done by small ship, and you can also look out for whales breaking the surface, Arctic terns wheeling in the sky, and huddles of walruses out on the ice. In summer, voyage over land instead, and spot young birds learning to fly.
