Unique and remote: cruise Magdalenefjord in Arctic Svalbad

The Magdalenefjord is located on the northwest coast of the island of Spitsbergen, one of four islands in the highly remote Svalbad Jan Mayen archipelago.
This is a vacation destination like no other along the MSC Nordic cruise itinerary.

Spitsbergen is under Norwegian sovereignty but although the islands lie 400 miles off the north coast of Norway… they are just 600 miles from the North Pole! Located in the Arctic Ocean, these islands offer stunning examples of Arctic scenery, with icy tundra, icebergs and glaciers… as well as the flora and fauna that inhabit this hostile region.

Nature lovers will be thrilled to catch a glimpse of polar bears and the occasional walrus, families of seals and colonies of auks, geese and ducks. In the 17th century, at the peak of Norway’s whaling industry, Magdalenefjord was regarded as one of the most important harbours in the area, frequented by several hundred whaling boats each summer.

Today renowned for its great beauty, Magdalenefjord boasts a spectacular circle of rugged mountain peaks and glaciers. The harbour is dominated by the craggy peaks of the Waggonway Glacier which stretches down into the fjord, creating a breathtaking panorama.
