Svalbard Arctic Expedition

Tour Details

Svalbard has fascinated travellers for a long time. Rich wildlife, arctic nature, and old mining towns are all found on the islands, which have a stark and eerie beauty that’s all their own. On this expedition you will experience all that Svalbard has to offer.

Halfway between mainland Norway and the North Pole lies Svalbard – one the world’s most spectacular wilderness and wildlife areas. For this incredible adventure we will be using the M/S Stockholm, a small expedition ship built specifically for Arctic waters. Nimble and flexible, they allow us to make regular landfalls with sturdy Zodiacs and explore the polar wilderness and it’s spectacular wildlife.

As a member of our Svalbard Expedition you will be on standby for photographic action at all times. At times you may be woken in the early hours of the morning because a polar bear has been spotted, truly exciting. May/June is characterised by a lot of snow and a wonderful purity. From Polar Bears and Walruses to Arctic Foxes and innumerable flocks of birds, this photo expedition promises not only unbelievable photo opportunities but memories that will last you a lifetime.
