From Tromsø, the "Gateway to the Arctic," this Svalbard polar bear
expedition heads for the North Cape, where we'll stand on the
northernmost tip of the European continent. The Island Sky whisks us
to the former whaling station of Bear Island, now home to thousands
of breeding seabirds, and into the Svalbard Archipelago, where we'll
come face to face with immense glaciers and black basaltic islands as
well as our ultimate goal—polar bears. Zodiac excursions bring us even closer to these magnificent creatures.
