This is one of four main regions where you can travel to watch polar bears. The best chance to see one is on a longer cruise around Svalbard, which will take you to the North and East of Spitsbergen in July and August, according to Spitsbergen Travel. Polar bears are also occasionally seen on snowmobile safaris to the east coast and on summer boat trips to Pyramiden.
