Sailing from Trondheim to Oslo, you’ll experience how the state-of-the-art facilities and amenities of the ultra-luxury, purpose-built expedition ship Seabourn Venture add to the experience of the remote destinations it takes you to. These include soaring Storstappen Island, a nature reserve with great cormorants, European shags, black-legged kittiwakes, razorbills and puffins, and the Hornvika, reached via RIB boat and home to the North Cape Monument. The major highlight is the islands of Svalbard that rise from the Arctic Ocean between Norway’s North Cape and the North Pole, populated by grazing reindeer, arctic foxes, predatory gulls, seals, walruses, polar bears patrolling the rocky shorelines and whales breaching offshore. Exploration here takes several forms: by Zodiac, kayak, on treks and from the decks of Venture.
