Bear Island owes its name to the polar bears which were to be seen here when it was first discovered in 1556 . Today the steep coastline is the home of puffins and fulmars. You can look forward to intensive observation of the animal world before you continue in a northerly direction to meet your Spitzbergen adventure.
