There’s life in that ice

WHILE on the surface the Arctic may appear to be a barren ice shelf, Abercrombie & Kent is intent on debunking the myth via a cruise which highlights just how many amazing species call this region home.

While few people have the opportunity to see the majestic and endangered polar bear up close, A&K’s Arctic Cruise Adventure: In Search of the Polar Bear 2020 itinerary, which takes place on Ponant’s Le Boreal, is sure not to disappoint any traveller holding that ambition, as the vessel cruises through the polar bear haven of Svalbard — where the operator enjoys unrestricted access to landing sites.

The 15-day luxury expedition cruise departs from Oslo, Norway on 31 June 2020 and sails through the Svalbard Islands, Greenland and Iceland in search of the most elusive flora and fauna in the region. Usually priced at $17,495, passengers who book before 30 November will receive a $1,500 discount.
