Wildlife & Marine Life North Spitsbergen Sailing Voyage
With Aqua-Firma Marine Scientist, Charlotte Caffrey
Although only one species of bird (the ptarmigan) is able to withstand the harsh Svalbard winters, this Arctic archipelago is a hub for many species of visiting breeding birds, especially sea birds.
As you explore the ancient fjords and sail along the untamed coastal waters, you are likely to encounter a range of beautiful and fascinating species which visit Spitsbergen during the summer months. Whether watching the comic mishaps of little auks bouncing off the waves, admiring the carefree glide of the fulmar or watching the startling ivory gull to see whether it will lead you to a polar bear, the seabirds are an enigmatic aspect of any Arctic experience.
