About The Arctic

Spitsbergen Explorer Escorted by Photographer Steve Davey Summary

Add to Shortlist

Day 1 Arrive in Longyearbyen

Set sail on an Arctic adventure from Longyearbyen, Svalbard's largest settlement. Drift out to sea while looking back across the mountainous terrain that serves as a backdrop for this remote town. This evening, join host Steve Davey for a three course welcome dinner, where you'll get to meet him and hear more about what to expect on your Arctic adventure. Spend the next 10 days benefiting from his photography knowledge and expertise.

Days 2-11 Exploring Spitsbergen

Spend eight memorable days exploring Spitsbergen, an Arctic eden filled with incredible wildlife, polar deserts and immense glaciers. Far from being a wasteland, the tundra-covered landscapes can be surprisingly colourful in summer, with wildflowers bursting forth for a taste of sunshine. Discover the western coast of the island en route to the stunning fjords and outlying islands to the north, and gain a greater appreciation of the history and geology of this unique land. Spot polar bears hunting on sheets of white, look upward toward the nesting birdlife among the towering cliffs of Alkefjellet and scour the coast for imposing walruses lazing on rocky shores. Get closer to the action by jumping in a sea kayak to discover isolated coves, and strap on some snowshoes to venture onto the mainland and visit a historic whaling memorial and abandoned huts. It can be difficult to guarantee specific daily activities due to the weather conditions, but rest assured there will be guaranteed memorable experiences at every stage of the journey. You will also enjoy daily presentations from Steve Davey ensuring you take home the best possible pictures of this unforgettable Arctic journey.

Day 12 Disembark Longyearbyen

Bid farewell to your fellow expedition party members, and return to Longyearbyen, where this unique Arctic adventure ends.
