SVALBARD EXPERIENCE


A special journey to discover these remote islands located less than a thousand km from the North Pole. The islands form an archipelago in the Arctic Ocean, located between 74 ° and 81 ° north and between 10 ° and 34 ° east. They are the northernmost part of Norway, and the northernmost inhabited lands on the planet. During the summer, it is possible to navigate to places where during the rest of the year, due to the completely iced polar cap, it is practically unthinkable to venture. The journey will take place aboard a fantastic sailing boat, where it will be possible to experience this 100% uncontaminated place. The goal is to live a unique experience, looking for breathtaking landscapes and fauna, from glaciers that drop steeply over the sea, to the colonies of walruses, to the fascinating puffin, the arctic fox, whales, orcas, beluga , narwhals and finally to the majestic polar bear.

The sailboat, small and agile hull, houses 5 double cabins with services for a total of 10 people. The trip is assisted by expert guides and includes the flight, an overnight stay in Longyearbyen, full board on board and a program of daily shore excursions to discover the most suggestive and remote areas of this fantastic archipelago.

Day 3 to 10

We will sail to the north of the archipelago, with a program that will be dictated by weather and marine conditions. With the assistance of an expert guide we will try to spot as many polar bears as possible (main interest of every trip to these beautiful islands) as well as whales, walruses, seals, reindeers and foxes. Always depending on the weather conditions, we will try to make one or two shore excursions a day in order to make beautiful and short treks. This will happen with the assistance of armed guides because the ground it is always a bit uneven since there are no marked paths.
