Our expedition begins at the richly historical former mining town of Longyearbyen, which is also the administrative capital of Spitsbergen. Svalbard Reindeer, a subspecies that is endemic to Spitsbergen, may be seen here, along with Arctic Fox. We will embark on our fabulous adventure as we sail through Isfjorden, the second longest fjord in Svalbard.
