Arctic Adventure Overview

Our expedition to Spitsbergen on board the MV Freya offers you the chance to have the experience of a lifetime with a small group of privileged travellers appreciative of the untouched nature of Norway’s Svalbard archipelago. You sail along sculpted glacier fronts, through breathtakingly scenery and amongst sparkling ice caps lit by the midnight sun. The wildlife watching around Spitsbergen is excellent with Arctic foxes, bearded seals, walrus, beluga whales and the ultimate wildlife encounter – the mighty polar bear.  

This unique expedition will not only offer hiking, zodiac cruising and photography opportunity at its best, but also Polar Snorkel and Diving activities upon request. The combination of land and water activities, makes this trip one of the most unique in its kind !

On the landing sites our 'footprint' is very small – we are few enough to cause virtually no disturbance, leaving us with more rewarding interactions with the wildlife and even more of a feeling of being in our own personal wilderness.

The growl of a polar bear this close gave me chills in my spine! That was awesome!
