A cruise to Norway's Svalbard Archipelago:
Condé Nast Traveler highlighted Svalbard in their July issue and I immediately set my sights on this island in the Arctic Circle. This region features icebergs and glaciers, plus roaming polar bears, lounging seals, and fat walruses. Luckily late summer is the only time conditions allow for much visitation— Bri's work schedule works out perfectly for a change.
Clipper Cruises offers a nice 2-week cruise from Oslo and GAP Adventures offers a slightly shorter cruise. Both offer small Zodiac expeditions to see the wildlife. However, I really want one that will let me bring home a baby seal.
