Things to Do on an Arctic Cruise with Crystal Cruises


A remote area, one might think there isn’t much to do in the Arctic Circle, but we are here to prove you wrong! Search for polar bears on the outskirts of the quaint city of Svalbard, treat yourself to a relaxing spa treatment in the geothermal hot springs of Iceland, or maybe hop in a kayak and explore the fjord-speckled coastline of Greenland. There is so much to explore in the Arctic with Crystal Cruises, so continue below for some of our expert recommendations on how to spend your time here:



A penguin on Hinlopen Strait
  • Hinlopen Strait (Svalbard, Norway)
    A narrow strait perfect for scenic cruising, guests will be delighted as they try to spot the elusive wildlife that roam the icy shores. Artic fox, Svalbard reindeer, and polar bears are but a few of the animals you might see in the Hinlopen Strait.




Panorama of Spitsbergen National Park
  • Spitsbergen National Park (Svalbard, Norway)
    Bird enthusiasts *flock* to the Spitsbergen National Park for some of the top birding in the world! In fact, it was established as an Important Bird Area shortly after its inception in 1973 due to large populations of barnacle geese and black guillemots!




Sled dogs in Svalbard
  • Dogs of Svalbard
    When in Svalbard, do as the locals do and get around with a team of sled dogs! If you’re lucky, these adorable huskies will have energy to play with you when you return.




Tiny homes in Longyearbyen
  • Gateway to the North Pole (Longyearbyen, Svalbard, Norway)
    A small town of just 2,000 people, this is the gateway to the North Pole. Enjoy a meal with some locals while gazing out into the beautiful fjords.




Abandoned buildings in Pyramiden
  • Ghost Town (Pyramiden, Svalbard, Norway)
    An old mining town, this is not so much a ghost town but an abandoned one. Home to a maximum of eight people during the warm months, there are still buildings and empty mines from which the last bit of coal was mined in 1998.




Hot Springs in Reykjavik
  • Geothermal Wonderland (Reykjavik, Iceland)
    The average hot tub on a cruise ship is around 94 degrees, but if you want a real hot tub, head to a thermal spring in Reykjavik, where the temperatures reach 111 degrees and have the added benefits of minerals!
