This twin-centre break is a superb introduction to the Arctic region. It starts in the northern Norwegian city of Tromso where you'll spend two nights, before travelling on to Svalbard's tiny capital, Longyearbyen. Once there, you'll have the chance to savour the Midnight Sun and enjoy a scenic cruise to Barentsburg, Pyramiden or Tempelfjorden – during which you'll learn about the nature, history, hunters and wildlife of Spitsbergen.

Day by day itinerary

Days 1-2
Tromso

Arrive in Tromsø and spend an evening exploring the city under the Midnight Sun or in one of the city's fine restaurants – we recommend Fiskekompaniet and Emma's Dream Kitchen. You might also like to visit Mack Brewery, the world's northernmost brewery, for a beer or two. The next day, take the cable car up Storsteinen Mountain for panoramic views of the city or visit the Polaria Arctic Aquarium, which is home to fish species native to the Barents Sea and a group of bearded seals.

Day 3
Longyearbyen

From Tromso, fly north to Longyearbyen, the largest settlement in Spitsbergen, where you'll check into the super-stylish Funken Lodge for a three-night stay. With views over the Lars Glacier, interiors furnished in the latest Scandinavian chic and a restaurant reputed to be the best in town, it's a wonderful base from which to explore Spitsbergen's frozen wilderness. And, if you do need to pop into town, you're just a ten-minute snowmobile ride away.

Stay: Funken Lodge, Spitsbergen (Superior)

Days 4-5
Longyearbyen

Spend the next two days discovering Longyearbyen at your own pace, enjoying an optional hike or wildlife-watching trip, or taking an optional boat trip to Barentsburg, Pyramiden or the magnificent Tempelfjorden. The cruise will give you plenty of time to take in the immense landscape and learn about the history and wildlife of the region.
