Arctic Expedition with Dr. Carla Thorson

June 21 - July 1

Voyage through the otherworldly Arctic Circle on this unique 11-day itinerary featuring an extraordinary seven-night cruise on the Five-Star L’AUSTRAL. Visit during the region’s most enchanting season, when shimmering ice basks in the midnight sun’s ceaseless glow. Sail the shores of secluded Spitsbergen, the jewel of Norway’s rarely visited Svalbard archipelago.  Enjoy expert-led Zodiac excursions in diverse, serene terrains, where remarkable wildlife—from whales and walruses to Svalbard reindeer and Arctic foxes—roam freely. Accompanied by Dr. Carla Thorson, you will explore the politics of this Arctic region.  Spend one night in Paris before the flight to Longyearbyen and one night in the deluxe Hilton Paris Charles De Gaulle Airport Hotel upon return from the Arctic. 

From $6,995 per person plus airfare.
