Ever wonder what it would be like to cruise through the sea ice in search of polar bears in their natural habitat? One of the main reasons people travel to Svalbard is to see polar bears in the wild. This video takes place far north in the Svalbard archipelago and through the sea ice in search of Polar Bears. We were aboard the icebreaker ship Plancius on the August 2015 trip with Oceanwide Expeditions.
Glaciers, rugged coastal mountains and snowy landscapes offer the perfect backdrop to seeing polar bears. We encountered lots of other amazing wildlife including walruses, whales, seals, Svalbard reindeer and tons of seabirds including puffins, kittiwakes and skuas among others.
We visited glaciers, research stations, historical sites with lots of shore landings with chances to hike in the unique landscapes.
Hope you enjoy and let us know if you have any questions!
