Our range of Arctic holiday adventures and cruises introduces you to a spectacular region unlike anywhere else on the planet. By land and sea you’ll discover the secrets of this magnificently diverse place, which is brimming with life in the form of birds, land mammals, marine animals, native people and stunning displays of flora during the spring and summertime. Vast and enigmatic, this magnificent ice-strewn region surrounded by land is yours to explore.
Have a look at all the incredible adventures you can enjoy on Wildfoot’s Arctic holiday itineraries...
The polar bear isn’t the only animal you’ll find here. The region is full of other land and sea mammals such as Musk Ox, Sea Otters, Whales, from Blue to Beluga, Narwhal, Walrus and many more. If observing Polar Bears is on your wish list, Spitsbergen or the Canadian Arctic are the key destinations to see these incredible mammals.
There are more polar bears than people in Spitsbergen, so the chances of spotting one of these amazing animals, if not a mother and her cubs, is high. Spitsbergen and Greenland are authentic destinations for wildlife spotting, and aside from polar bears, you’ll get the opportunity to observe Seals, Whales, Arctic Foxes, Reindeer and much more.
Join us on an Arctic cruise and experience breath-taking natural beauty first-hand.
Discover the many species of local birdlife in luxury on an Arctic cruise or expedition.
See unique and rare species from Steller’s Sea Eagles to Ivory Gulls, plus Spoon-billed Sandpipers and beautiful Gyrfalcons, while thousands of Auks, Gulls and more, await you somewhere in the far north. Steller’s Sea Eagles, usually found in the Russian Arctic, are rare and are a birding marvel for their impressive wingspan.
If you’re a keen birdwatcher, a visit to Spitsbergen is a must. This Arctic Archipelago has an array of magnificent birds to observe from Brunnich’s Guillemots to Skuas and other seabird colonies. Skuas are the most common bird species to be seen in Spitsbergen, while Puffins can also be observed along the fjords of the South West.
Ross’s Gulls boast a distinctive black necklace and are the only bird from the gull family with wedge-shaped tails. They predominantly breed around the Siberian Rivers in the Russian Arctic. However, they can occasionally be spotted south of the Arctic Circle. Migratory birds can be seen from the end of May until circa the middle of July.
Whatever time of year you visit, you’ll be nothing less than amazed at the incredible birdlife the Arctic has to offer.
If you’re after an even more immersive experience, you can look for wildlife a lodge in Arctic Canada or experience extreme skiing, climbing, dog sledding and snowmobile camping on Spitsbergen – a true adventure! The Canadian Arctic has plenty to offer, so get in touch to find out more and book your dream Arctic adventure.
Snowmobiling and dog-sledging are some of our most popular land-based activities. These are both exhilarating experiences and offer the opportunity to admire Spitsbergen’s magnificent and unspoiled white landscapes.
During the activity, you’ll get to explore some interesting and unique Spitsbergen towns and settlements. Land based activities requiring snow are only generally available between November to February. During the summer months, dog-sledding is on wheels. Hiking is another incredible adventure to do in Spitsbergen.
You’ll be able to hike across mountains while covering even more of this stunning land. If seeing the Northern Lights is also on your bucket list, the Arctic should be at the top of your agenda. During your trip, you may be lucky enough to see a magical display of colour across the sky. Please note, you are not always guaranteed to the Northern Lights as it’s dependent on clear skies between Mid-September to March.
Not only this, but the popular wildlife hotspot Svalbard is also a hub of history with its links to World War 2. There’s something to inspire all adventure seekers.
