Norway's Fjords and Arctic Svalbard

Glide into dramatic narrow straits and survey secluded inlets and coves by kayak and Zodiac. Experience the seabird spectacle of Bear Island, cross the Barents Sea, and spend five days exploring the icy wilderness of the Svalbard archipelago in the midnight sun above the Arctic Circle—where polar bears prowl and walruses lumber. A choice of activities allows guests to tailor their days as they see fit and experience an extraordinary adventure in Norway's coastal wonderland.

Dates & Rates
National Geographic Endurance
The most advanced ice-class expedition ship afloat offering unprecedented access to polar regions
The first new polar build in Lindblad’s 50-year history, National Geographic Endurance is named to honor explorer Ernest Shackleton and his legendary Transantarctic Expedition. A fully-stabilized vessel of ice class PC5 Category A, she will enable adventurous guests to go where few have or can. National Geographic Endurance’s most striking exterior feature is her distinctive profile, the patented X-Bow®, a game-changing design that guarantees the smoothest, most comfortable ride in all kinds of conditions; and since it eliminates bow impact, a quieter ride, as well.
National Geographic Resolution
The sister ship to National Geographic Endurance, she explores polar & temperate regions
One of two new ships expressly built for polar waters, National Geographic Resolution is named to honor the second voyage of the legendary Captain James Cook. A fully-stabilized vessel with ice class PC5, Category A, she will enable adventurous guests to go where few have or can. National Geographic Resolution’s most striking exterior feature is her distinctive profile, the patented X-Bow®, a game-changing design that guarantees the smoothest, most comfortable ride in all kinds of conditions—and, since it eliminates bow impact, a quieter ride as well.
