May 02 – 13, 2019
April and May in Svalbard are 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. Here lives the mighty polar bear, or Isbjörn (“ice bear“) as it is known, and they will be our main focus during the expedition all though our expedition will allow us to meet walrus, seals, reindeer, sea birds and maybe polar fox. The light at this time of year is magical and we will travel to the northern areas of Spitsbergen. Usually at this time of year, Svalbard travel is limited to snowmobiles only close to Longyearbyen. However, with our experienced Captain and expedition ship, the M/S Freya, we will be able to explore more areas in comparison to larger group vessels.
Because we specialize in exclusive small group travel (12 – 16 passengers maximum), we have freedom and extra flexibility on our expeditions that may not be enjoyed with larger groups. We can linger as long as we like at wildlife sightings. We have time to capture the perfect light while enjoying or photographing the majestic landscapes.

“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.”
