Spitsbergen: Land of Ice & Bears
Famed for its rugged beauty, pristine wilderness and remarkable wildlife, the Arctic realm of Spitsbergen should be at the top of any wildlife traveller’s list. Marvel at the beauty of dramatic fjords, towering peaks, vast glaciers, the Arctic ice sheet and wondrous encounters with species such as polar bear and blue whale, as Bret Charman gives you a taste of what’s on offer on our Festival of Wildlife in Spitsbergen in 2020.
