The Svalbard Islands are located in the Arctic Ocean, halfway between Norway and the North Pole. Here, you will find untouched arctic wilderness and unique wildlife in a setting that is both rugged and fragile at the same time.
You're very likely to spot walruses on this Arctic Safari that takes you to Greenland, across the Davis Straight and to the Canadian Arctic. Besides walruses, you're also likely to see whales, seals, polar bears and tons of birds.
Walruses are probably best known for their oversized tusks. In fact, the species' scientific name Odobenus rosmarus is Latin for “tooth walking sea horse.” There are two subspecies of these marine mammals, the Pacific walrus and the Atlantic walrus.
