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.

Days 4-5
Longyearbyen

Spend the next two days discovering Longyearbyen at your own pace, perhaps doing a bit of tax-free shopping, enjoying an optional excursion 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.
