Tour Itinerary

Chart a course along Svalbard's coastline and explore the spectacular Arctic wilderness on a 14-day polar expedition, led by expert photographers and guides. Take advantage of continuous daylight to search for Arctic wildlife including walruses, whales, Arctic foxes, Svalbard reindeer and the powerful polar bear. Reach areas that larger ships can't access and make Zodiac landings to hike the colourful tundra and photograph wildlife up close. This one-off adventure is the perfect way to capture the stunning scenery, history and wildlife of this untouched region.

Day 1: Oslo
Welcome to Oslo – Norway’s modern and museum-stuffed capital. You are free to arrive at any time today and make your own way to the pre-expedition accommodation located near the airport – check-in is at 3 pm. This afternoon is free for you to head into Norway city and explore if you wish. Keep in mind that you will have an early morning flight to Longyearbyen scheduled tomorrow, so relaxing this evening is recommended.

Day 2: Longyearbyen – Embarkation Day
Early this morning, transfer back to Oslo Airport and board a charter flight bound for Longyearbyen. Once arrived, you may have some spare time in Longyearbyen, so perhaps visit the Svalbard Museum or North Pole Expedition Museum to learn more about the environments you will be exploring (and photographing!) in the coming days. You will embark this afternoon, settle into your cabin and have the chance to explore the amenities of your ship. After receiving your polar gear and joining a safety demonstration, meet your expedition crew over a drink at the Captain’s welcome and enjoy an onboard dinner as you begin your voyage.

Day 3-13: Spitsbergen
Prepare for the next ten days of rugged wilderness, spectacular landscapes and unique wildlife sightings as you explore the wonders of Spitsbergen with your camera in hand. Your expert crew will ensure they track ice, sea and weather patterns to maximise wildlife sightings and shore landings, all for the perfect photo opportunities. This voyage has the opportunity to deviate from a rigid itinerary to allow for any changes in weather or special events that present themselves, such as a polar bear sighting over dinner or a herd of Arctic wolves prowling in the distance. Expect to come across puffins, Arctic terns, reindeer and walruses on multiple Zodiac trips and wilderness hikes, cruising past calving glaciers and strolling by fields of colourful tundra. A typical day usually consists of two excursions with lunch served on board; however, if there happens to be any adverse weather or sea conditions, a range of onboard activities will be available, including wildlife presentations, documentary screenings and photography masterclasses, led by your expert polar team. There may also be the chance to truly take a polar plunge into the icy Arctic waters if you dare! Over the course of the voyage, your crew will be dedicated to curating the perfect itinerary so you can capture the best moments, on film and off. One thing is for certain – be sure to check your camera charge each night so you don’t miss a beat.

Day 14: Longyearbyen – Disembarkation Day – Oslo
Your Arctic adventure ends back at the frontier settlement of Longyearbyen at 7–8 am, after an overnight sail. After an early morning breakfast, disembark the vessel and transfer to the airport for your charter flight back to Oslo. With no other activities planned after this, you are free to leave Oslo Airport any time after landing.
