Spot The Polar Bears In Spitsbergen

The King Of The Arctic – The Mighty Polar Bear. 

Spitsbergen is the place where I would most like to see the world’s largest carnivore. The polar bear population in the Svalbard archipelago and Barents Sea is around 3,000, which means more polar bears than humans!

Sightings are most common to the east of Spitsbergen however being wild animals roaming free they can appear anywhere, so never let your guard down when in Svalbard. 

Adult polar bears vary in size from 200 to 800 kg.

Visit the Association of Arctic Expedition Cruise Operators (AECO) to see a list of cruise providers to learn more.

Natural World Safaris offer an immersive tour to really explore this island and enhance your chances of seeing these beautiful bears.
