Lindblad Expeditions to Explore the Arctic in Spring

Lindblad Expeditions will bring its newest polar vessel, the 126-guest National Geographic Resolution, to Svalbard on two newly added departures in April, thus venturing to the Arctic earlier in the season than ever before.

The expeditions will take place during the Arctic’s spring awakening—a true Arctic refuge, covered in snow and surrounded by sea ice. It is an experience few have witnessed, and National Geographic Resolution has been built for these exact conditions. 

Set against stunning icescapes and snow-covered mountains, the expedition will voyage deep into and around the Svalbard Archipelago in search of walrus, seals with their pups, and polar bears returning to their spring hunting grounds on the pack ice. Guests will have the opportunity to walk on the frozen sea ice, an adventure only possible in early spring. Photographers will enjoy the lights and landscapes, and novices and experts alike can capture it all with expert photographers onboard to help bring their skills to the next level.

Good to know: Sven Lindblad, founder of Lindblad Expeditions, will be joining the April 18 departure. Sven led a small reconnaissance team in Svalbard to determine whether early spring would be a good time of year to explore the region for their guests. 

The 11-day "Svalbard in Spring: Polar Bears, Arctic Light & Epic Ice" voyages are set for April 18 and April 25, 2022.
