Tour Itinerary

Join Aboard Ocean Atlantic
With an international ice-class rating of 1B, General Tours expedition vessel is perfect for exploring remote regions of the North Atlantic. Its exceptional maneuverability, shallow draft and powerful engines, allow the Ocean Atlantic to navigate all the way north to the 80th Parallel – and into the deepest and most remote fjords. General Tours ship was recently renovated with welcoming public spaces and comfortable accommodations for just 198 passengers – and an experienced crew and Expedition Team of 140. All staterooms feature private en suite baths, individual climate control and television. International cuisine is served in a bright, spacious restaurant and the panoramic lounge features large windows, plenty of comfortable seating – and even binoculars. A full fleet of Zodiacs allow for exciting exploration on land and water with General Tours fine Expedition Team.

Day 1 - Day 1 - Welcome to Oslo, Norway

On arrival, you’ll be escorted to the Thon Hotel Opera. Join your fellow travelers for dinner at the hotel. Meals D

Day 2 - Day 2 - Tasting tour of Oslo

Experience Oslo’s history and culture through its food, from the vibrant Aker Brygge waterfront to the trendy Grünerløkka district. Meals B+L+D

Day 3 - Day 3 - Board the Ocean Atlantic

Fly to Spitsbergen in the Svalbard Islands. Tour Longyearbyen and board the ice-class Ocean Atlantic to begin your voyage. Meals B+D

Day 4 - Day 4 - Into the Kongsfjorden

Sail through the Kongs Fjord to visit Ny Ålesund and its scienti‚c research stations. Conditions permitting, make another landing at Ny London, home to Arctic terns. Meals B+L+D

Day 5 - Day 5 - Nordvest-Spitsbergen

In the secluded bay of Virgohamna, you’ll learn about its infamous history as the starting point for several failed attempts to reach the North Pole. On Fugelsongen Island, you’ll find Svalbard’s largest colony of little auks, a diminutive black and white bird that can dive up to 95 feet into the sea. Meals B+L+D

Day 6 - Day 6 - North to the 80th Parallel

Even before Hampton Sides published his gripping account of the USS Jeanette’s 1879 attempt to reach the North Pole, the 80th Parallel has been a lure for world adventurers. Today we’ll navigate as far north as sea conditions allow – possibly bringing us to within 10 degrees of the North Pole – and 5 degrees farther than the Jeanette’s ill-fated voyage. Meals B+L+D

Day 7 - Day 7 - Fjords, islets + glaciers

Navigating the pristine waters of northern Svalbard as far east as possible, General Tours hope to explore the Wood Fjord, where walruses can be spotted, and the Andøyane Islets, a nesting ground for migratory birds. Sailing deep into the Liefde Fjord would bring you close to the Monaco Glacier. Meals B+L+D

Day 8 - Day 8 - Spitsbergen's Western Coast

Going ashore on the so-called Blomstrand Peninsula, we’ll ‚nd that it is now an island – the result of a receding glacier. A hike up the 1,263-foot peak of Irgensellet is rewarded with a view of rugged mountains, icy seas and the Kongs Glacier. Later, if conditions permit, a Zodiac excursion will show you the impressive curved face of the Lilliehöök Glacier. Meals B+L+D

Day 9 - Day 9 - Svalbard's Southwest Coast

Sailing into Bellsund Inlet, you’ll go ashore at Vårsol Bay with General Tours Expedition Team to explore the moss-covered tundra and a rocky cliff where hundreds of thousands of little auks have built their nests. Along the majestic Recherche Fjord, a Zodiac landing at Calypsobyen reveals an important cultural and historic site that bears witness to the early 20th-century mining exploits of the Northern Exploration Company. Meals B+L+D

Day 10 - Day 10 - Husky Adventure + Tromsø

Disembarking in Longyearbyen, A+R guests will enjoy a special Husky adventure. Learn to harness these hard-working dogs and set out across the Arctic landscape in wagons specially built to keep the dogs trained and exercised when the snow is gone. Then fly to Tromsø and check in to the Clarion Hotel The Edge. Tonight General Tours take you to Whale Island to experience and photograph the Arctic wilderness under the magical light of the Midnight Sun. Enjoy a hearty dinner and Nordic tales around the camp fire. Meals B+D

Day 11 - Day 11 - Fly back to Oslo

After breakfast, we’ll take you to the airport for your included flight back to Oslo. Meals B

    Questions & Answers

    Question: How many suitcases can I take with me on my trip?

    Each person is allowed one "check-in," and one "carry-on." Remember to take all valuables with you as "carry-on", because electronic equipment, cameras, laptops, jewelry, business documents and money are not covered by the airlines' liability, so always carry them aboard with you.

    Question: Is Airfare Included in the Price?

    Airfare from your point of origin to and from the trip is not included in the land price.
