Longyearbyen

Longyearbyen is the world’s most northerly town; once your ship has docked, come ashore and admire the colourful wooden houses, visit the old church and gain a sense of place in the Svalbard museum and art galleries.

Cruise to the world’s most northerly town: visit Spitsbergen

MSC holiday cruises to the Nordics offer once-in-a-lifetime opportunities to visit some of the world’s most remote places and to witness some of the most breathtaking scenery on the planet.
The wild islands of the Svalbard Jan Mayen archipelago off the northern tip of Norway are prime examples of this.

For nature lovers or keen photographers, Spitsbergen and the surrounding islands truly make for a memorable vacation. These beautiful rugged islands, with their glaciers and mountains, icebergs and bird cliffs, are located in the Arctic Ocean, just 600 miles from the North Pole.
Leave your luxury MSC cruise liner for the day and join one of our MSC excursion packages, to ensure you get the most out of this region and the best deals on key sights. Longyearbyen, the largest settlement on Spitsbergen, is the world’s most northerly town; once your ship has docked, come ashore and admire the colourful wooden houses, visit the old church and gain a sense of place in the Svalbard museum and art galleries.

Trips such as whale watching, seal spotting and husky adventures are also available here. Polar bears are regular visitors; lucky travellers may spot walrus, too. Birdwatchers will delight in the colonies of little auks that reside here, and winter travellers may see native reindeer walking across the ice from island to island.
