    On a spectacular exploration route through the ice
    Spitsbergen welcomes you with the wild and raw beauty of its icy coast. The Dutch seafarer Willem Barents discovered the archipelago whilst searching for a north-east passage to Asia in 1596. Fascinated by the mountain peaks rising up to 1,700 metres out of the waters of the North Atlantic, he gave the archipelago its name. You too can discover the fascination of Spitsbergen. Spend days filled with wondrous experiences as the BREMEN slowly circumnavigates the archipelago as per the itinerary. The midnight sun makes the magically glistening ice world sparkle all the more. Discover the most beautiful fjords and bays in all their glory thanks to the captain and officers’ years of experience in the polar regions. They always react flexibly and spontaneously to grant you some unforgettable animal observations. For example, they will change course if someone cries “Polar bear spotted!” Such poignant natural experiences can only happen with a ship like the BREMEN. Small and nimble with a low draught and the highest ice class for passenger ships, the BREMEN and its Zodiacs are ideal for unforgettable moments in these nautically challenging waters, such as at Hornsund, shaped by powerful glaciers with scarps reaching right to the shore. You can always expect exciting animal observations in the habitat of reindeer, Arctic foxes and little auks. Ny-Alesund, one of the northernmost settlements in the world, is no different and numerous Arctic terns brood in the vicinity. In 1926, Amundsen and Nobile set out from here in their airship Norge and became the first people to reach the North Pole. Today, a few researchers live here to study climate change and its effects on the flora and fauna.

    Upon reaching Moellerhafen, you will be welcomed by the northernmost bar in the world, the Lloyd Hotel, a refuge constructed for Arctic explorers. A once-in-a-lifetime view awaits you in the Magdalenefjord with its glacial backdrops, and you can discover the historic graves of whalers. Feel the power and sensitivity of raw nature in this overwhelming panorama, and these unforgettable impressions will also shape your view of the Raudfjord. The red mountain slopes are a charming contrast to the white and blue of the majestic Monaco Glacier in the Liefdefjord. It is breathtaking to watch the glaciers calve and huge blocks of ice fall into the ocean. Marvel at this spectacle from the ship or at a safe distance in the Zodiacs and, with a bit of luck, see seals and whales in the water nearby. A trapper will tell exciting stories about life at the end of the world if he invites you to visit his lonely cabin in Mushamna. You can observe imposing walruses gathering in large herds on the flat coastline of the small island of Moffen.

    The north-east coast of Spitsbergen: a real expedition
    The Hinlopen Strait seems to be made for the BREMEN, which can make its way through the pack ice. Along with some spectacular views, you may even spot Arctic foxes or wandering polar bears. Thick-billed murres, kittiwakes and black guillemots inhabit the rocks of Alkefjellet in their thousands – an unforgettable natural display. The excitement level increases with the promise of a special adventure ahead: will you be one of the few explorers to press forward to Nordaustlandet? The uninhabited island, the second largest in the Spitsbergen archipelago, is a special highlight on your expedition. With its flat expanses, ice caps and glaciers, the landscape has a unique atmosphere. Depending on the condition of the ice, you can ride the Zodiacs and land at Palanderbukta and hopefully see reindeer and Arctic foxes whilst trekking through the bleak tundra. Your heart will then beat all the quicker when you see the front of the Braswell Glacier sparkling like a crystal in the bright polar light. Your journey around Spitsbergen will be complete after cruising through the Freeman Sound, where walruses can be seen in front of Cape Lee – an experience granted to a select few.
