Svalbard

Svalbard Photo Tours

Svalbard is the largest Norwegian archipelago located in the Arctic Ocean partway between Norway and the North Pole.

In March and April the light conditions on Svalbard are quite simply magical. Soft, pastel shades of orange, pink and blue bathe the landscape in an otherworldly light that that is indescribable!

Winter trips to Svalbard are limited due to the coverage of ice but thanks to the special permission granted by the Norwegian authorities, we are able to charter during this time of the year and have access to explore the northern and western areas of Spitsbergen that are not usually reachable.

With towering snowcapped mountains, forbidding glaciers and flower-studded tundra, it is here where the formidable Polar Bear reigns as the apex predator and we hope to capture these white bears on the drifting ice sprinkled across the ocean. Although Polar Bears are not as numerous as in the summer because there is more ice to hide on in winter, April is peak breeding time for them and these kings of the ice will be out on the glacier floors looking for a mate. Walruses, seals, arctic fox and reindeer are often seen, and seabirds are in the process of returning to their breeding grounds. Zodiac trips will be incorporated to get closer to wildlife, the ice and glaciers as we explore this unforgettable destination when it is completely devoid of humans.
