Those lucky enough to set foot this far north never forget the thrill of exploring a genuine winter wonderland. This is the 'King of the Arctic's' domain, and polar bear encounters are possible while exploring beautiful coastlines and waters where humpback whales cruise the depths. Silversea's experts will help you savour every moment in this remote, wild, and utterly mesmerising archipelago of towering landscapes and adrenaline-filled adventure.

Embarking on a Silversea cruise to Svalbard is a journey into the Arctic realm that offers awe-inspiring landscapes and unforgettable experiences. As the luxury ship glides through the icy waters, we will be treated to panoramic views of towering glaciers, snow-capped mountains, and pristine fjords. The crisp Arctic air carries a sense of adventure, and the cruise offers an opportunity to marvel at the midnight sun and witness the unique wildlife, including white polar bears, seals, and seabirds, in their natural habitat. Silversea's attention to detail will ensure that we can enjoy the stunning scenery from the comfort of well-appointed cabins and luxurious common areas. Expert guides will provide us with insightful commentary on the region's history, geology, and wildlife, enhancing the overall educational experience of an unparalleled exploration of the Arctic wilderness in utmost style and comfort.


With the Svalbard Silver Endeavour luxury cruise, we are continuing the newest chapter for Sights and Soul Travels: luxury cruises for destinations that lend themselves to touring from the sea. We can't help but be excited about this offering! It will allow a select and very fortunate group of women to embark on a luxury cruise that will immerse us in this remote, wild, and mesmerising archipelago of Svalbard and the majestic beauty of the world's northernmost region, the Arctic Circle.

With the door-to-door package, your luxury experience will begin as soon as you leave your home. Silversea's executive private transfer service will pick you up from your doorstep and transfer you to your nearest airport. Your flight to Oslo is included in the tour's price (major airports only, otherwise an air credit and economy class only, otherwise a business class supplement or an air credit). On arrival, you will be met by a uniformed chauffeur for your private transfer to one of Oslo's top hotels. Here, you will meet your Tour Director and the rest of the Sights and Soul tour group for a festive welcome gathering. The next day, we will return to the airport for a chartered group flight to Longyearbyen, the biggest settlement in Svalbard, Norway, where we'll board the Silversea Endeavour luxury expedition cruise ship and settle into our suites.

The high-quality service onboard Silversea Endeavour imparts an all-encompassing sense of well-being from the moment we board and set sail. This is relaxation at its most distilled: we will be welcomed into the supreme luxury by a team of butlers, trained to very high standards, who will guide each of us through every aspect of our cruise. They are there to ensure that all our need are taken care of before we even need to ask. A polite, professional, and friendly butler makes the difference between a great cruise and an amazing one. From unpacking your suitcase at the beginning of your voyage to shining your shoes and making your restaurant reservations, your butler will be happy to serve you. He or she will make sure that your room is always in pristine condition, provide white tablecloth in-suite service, and guarantee that your customized, in-suite bar is always full. From drawing a scented bath to ensuring that your every desire is fulfilled, the Silversea butler service can't be beat. But perhaps the greatest gift of the butler service is knowing that they are always there when you need them and mysteriously disappear when you don’t.

Throughout the cruise, we will enjoy the 24-hour gourmet dining options inclusive of all alcoholic beverages, classy entertainment, lectures on the history and culture of this unique country, and several shore excursions every day. It simply doesn’t get any better than this. All you have to do is relax and enjoy the mesmerizing beauty of Svalbard and the Arctic region. Indulge in a glass or a bottle of champagne, wine, beer, or spirits on the house. Your butler will also ensure that you have enough water, juices, and soft drinks in the public bars as well as in your suite. Silversea promises to keep your mini-bar full of your favorite drinks and alcoholic beverages. Your butler will replenish them daily, but if you want a little extra, just ask! No wish is too big or too small. You’ll wonder how you ever managed before! 

We'll enjoy our meals as a group in one of the four fine dining restaurants onboard or you can choose to have any meal in the comfort of your own suite. The Silversea Endeavour's restaurant menus are curated to be a deep-dive culinary immersion beyond anything you have ever experienced aboard a cruise ship. Each gourmet dining option offers unforgettable food and atmosphere, creating long-lasting gastronomic memories.

Because the Silversea Endeavour is an expedition-style ship, able to venture into narrow fjords, inlets, and channels where bigger ships cannot, we will have the fullest experience of visiting this remote and fascinating area. Added to that are superlative service, extreme comfort, gourmet dining, and of course the wonderful company of other like-minded, intelligent, and funny women traveling companions. We guarantee that this is the one adventure that you will never forget.
