⬤ IMPORTANT INFORMATION TRAVELLERS: ARCTIC UNVEILED

Arrival and departure in Longyearbyen

We strongly advise you to book a night's pre-accommodation in Longyearbyen in the case of flight delays. Please contact your booking agent to discuss accommodation and flight options. On the day of disembarkation we highly recommend that you book your flights to depart Longyearbyen from late afternoon. Please be aware that we will not be held responsible for the late arrival of the ship from your voyage.

Fuel Surcharges

Please note that your cruise booking may be subject to fuel surcharges should world oil prices increase significantly prior to the time of your departure. Cruise operators do attempt to factor this price into your tour cost. However, unexpected rises in the cost of marine fuel can result in a fuel surcharge that will depend on the cost of oil per barrel and the individual ship operator. By booking a tour with us, you agree that this may be the case with your booking. You will be advised of any surcharge once we have been notified of the surcharges from the cruise operator if this situation arises.

Flights to Meet Your Cruise

Flights to join your Arctic cruise are now available and we are also operating return charter flights from Copenhagen to Longyearbyen to meet the start of the cruise. Please contact your booking agent to discuss flight options available for your travel arrangements.

Travel Insurance

Travel insurance is compulsory for all travellers and policy details must be provided prior to your final documentation being issued. We strongly recommend you obtain a policy for the level of cover at the time of booking you are comfortable with ensuring it meets our minimum guidelines. For more information on Travel Insurance please refer to the Artic Travellers Guide below or contact your booking agent.
