Norway

Few experiences are as profound as locating and observing bears in Arctic Svalbard.

  • From afar, the size of icebergs can be deceiving. But that's not the case when you take a Zodiac rides close to one.

  • Keep your eyes peeled for polar bears leaping across ice floes.

  • The fulmar is just one of many seabird species that can be found in Norway.

  • Walruses congregate on small spits of land in Svalbard, cozying up to one another to keep warm.

The high Arctic landscape of Svalbard, Norway is among the most remote wild realms in the world. Massive glaciers flow in winding frozen rivers into the sea. Tundra appears during the short summer, and a carpet of wildflowers adds a burst of color to the white and blue landscape. Polar bears, bowhead whales, reindeer, Arctic foxes and seabird colonies call Svalbard home.

WWF in Svalbard
There are currently 20,000 to 25,000 polar bears remaining in the wild, and their survival is in jeopardy. Climate change, which leads to the loss of Arctic sea ice, is the leading threat to polar bears, and WWF actively works to protect this flagship species. Read more here
