May in Svalbard is an ice lover’s dream. On our expedition you will have a chance to photograph one of the last great Arctic frontiers on earth under the cover of ice and snow – the landscape and wildlife of the Svalbard Archipelago. Because of the Atlantic Gulf Stream, Svalbard has an arctic climate that significantly higher temperatures than other areas at the same latitude. Here lives the mighty polar bear, or Isbjörn (“ice bear“) as it is known, and they will be our main focus during the expedition.

“There is a magic about the Arctic that is difficult to describe …even for me having lived in the far north for more than two decades. You have to experience it for yourself. Svalbard is one of the best places to do so.”
“Ice is a photographer’s dream. Polar bears are the ultimate predator – top of the land- bearing food chain. Light is the one element that makes a photograph become a piece of art. Svalbard has all three of these combined that make this trip one of my favorite places in the world to photograph. This expedition is the ultimate adventure and a chance to see the mighty polar bear in his natural and magical habitat.”
