[July 11 - July 23, 2012] The Svalbard archipelago includes the "big island" of Spitsbergen. It is rugged, wild, unspoiled - and utterly unforgettable - as it glistens under continual daylight. Quark's Spitsbergen is rapildy becoming one of the world's great adventure destinations on par with safaris to the Galapagos Islands or Africa's Seregenti. This circumnavigation of Spitsbergen delivers more Arctic than any other Quark expedition in 2012.
Here the mythic ice bear is king. Walrus populate the water surrounding Spitsbergen in great numbers - hauling out on rocky beachheads to rest after feeding in the food-rich icy shallows. Zodiacs and sea-kayaks bring you up-close-and-personal with these and many other Arctic mammals, seabirds and glaciers.
Choose Quark for your Spitsbergen expedition, and join the privileged few to have explored, in depth, this pristine Arctic wonderland
