Arctic Circle

April is when the real “arctic” feeling occurs in the Arctic Circle. From the Lofoten Islands to Svalbard, the Norwegian Arctic's endless vistas and icy magic are at their most heightened during this time. We recommend exploring the national parks and nature reserves of the region with a private guide in search of the area’s many land and marine animals. Alternatively, opt for a thrilling expedition cruise around Svalbard. Look for long haired reindeer, foxes, seals, walrus colonies, and more than 2,500 polar bears who make their appearance around this time.
