Dog sledding in the Arctic

Arctic & Svalbard adventures

You'll see ice and snow, of course. But also an extraordinary colour palette of greys and blues, an amazing glimpse of the very bones of the land and to top it all, wildlife everywhere, from huge flocks of birds to seals scattered across the ice, from lounging walrus to the mighty polar bear.

Our insight

Exploring the Arctic & Svalbard

From Northern Norway travel north and further north towards the archipelago of Svalbard - next stop, the North Pole. These islands are true Arctic wilderness. A couple of so called 'towns', Longyearbyen and Ny Alesund, house scientists and a few intrepid visitors. Occasionally as you explore by sea you might glimpse a small hut left by whalers, trappers or a scientific mission. Once or twice, a ship might appear on the horizon. But apart from that, day after day is filled with extraordinary scenery, and amazing wildlife.

On board your expedition ship, lectures cover such diverse topics as the race to the North Pole, the fight for ownership of the sea bed beneath, the nesting habits of Arctic birds or the life of the polar bear. All are fascinating in the context of this amazing adventure.

Day by day, your expedition leader plans how to make your adventure as stimulating as possible. Guests are divided into groups to minimise queuing when you set forth to explore by zodiac, or for a hike ashore.
