All about the Svalbard Arctic Expedition.

Overview

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. A smaller ship like this offers you an entirely different experience than the one you will get on a larger, more conventional cruise ship. Nimble and flexible, they allow us to make regular landfalls with sturdy Zodiacs and explore the polar wilderness and it’s spectacular wildlife. Our exact route and activities will be determined by weather, ice conditions and wildlife sightings.

As a member of our Svalbard Expedition you will be on standby for photographic action at all times. Sometimes you may be woken in the early hours of the morning as we sail past a glorious iceberg on a smooth sea – a sight not to be missed.

Other times we might wake you in the middle of a bright night because a polar bear has been spotted in it’s amazing white domain.

May / June is characterised by a lot of snow and a wonderful purity. It is still spring in the Arctic and Polar Bear cubs and seals can sometimes be seen on the I’ve of the fjords in front of the glaciers. The mighty pack ice is not far away.

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.
