I took a wonderful 10 day cruise around Svalbard with Cheesemans' Ecology Safaris in June/July 2016. We were aboard a 12 passenger ship that had the flexibility to travel into smaller inlets than the larger ships in the area. If there was wildlife to be seen or land to explore, we took small Zodiac skiffs which made for nice excursions. My favorite day was when we went to the puffin colony. I could have stayed there all day watching puffins take off and land from their cliffside nests.
