 on this cruise with Fred Olsen Cruise Lines

"An unforgettable week within the Arctic Circle is at the heart of what makes this itinerary so special. On board Balmoral, you’re in for magical scenic cruising in areas of outstanding natural beauty, while each destination you visit will offer many unforgettable moments ashore. The two days in Spitsbergen – found just 700 nautical miles from the North Pole – is top on the list of highlights. Time in Longyearbyen and eerie Pyramiden is something not many get to experience; these far-away towns, situated amongst scenes of stunning Arctic landscapes, offer an insight into the Svalbard archipelago’s Soviet-influenced history, with their imposing architecture and abandoned mineshafts. Go inside the abandoned buildings and wander amongst the industrial communities that thrived here, for a taste of what life was once like. Your time in Svalbard also includes memorable sails by the by the magnificent Nordenskiöldbreen and Tuna glaciers, as well as the jaw-dropping stratifications of Tempelfjorden’s Temple Mountain."

Below: "Scenic cruising":
"The Trollfjord is a spectacular 2 kilometre long branch of the Raftsund straight that divides Norway's Lofoten and Vesterålen archipelagos. 
One of the most popular sight-seeing destinations in Nordland county, the Trollfjord is a relatively short and narrow fjord that's lined with steep mountains and vast rocky cliffs. Fred. Olsen's more compact ships allow you to cruise directly into the heart of the Trollfjord to join the flocks of native Sea Eagles in their natural habitat."
