We begin our exploration of the Svalbard archipelago in Longyearbyen, capital city of this Norwegian Territory. Following our embarkation of Akademik Sergey Vavilov
, our home for the next nine nights, we sail out of Isfjorden (Ice Fjord) and begin our exploration up and around the northwest coast of Spitsbergen, the larger of the two principal islands that make up the bulk of the Svalbard archipelago. From the moment we throw the lines and start our voyage we are in the land of the polar bear, beluga, walrus and reindeer so keep your eyes peeled for wildlife.
