Arctic wildlife photography expeditions like no other

Arctic Wildlife Tours specializes in Svalbard photography expeditions and in high-quality photo hides in the Nordic countries. Our goal is to fulfill your dreams of taking stunning images of rare Arctic wildlife in its natural habitats. Our Svalbard photography expeditions will bring you closer to nature and wildlife than you ever thought possible.

Professional wildlife photographer Svein Wik and his team of local guides give you the very best opportunities for outstanding photography and wildlife encounters. We know where to go, when to go, how to find the best light, and the best environments for wildlife encounters.

Our typical guests have a high interest in nature photography and as such, these topics are the focus of our expeditions. But we also welcome less experienced photographers and nature enthusiasts into our world, so you can see what we see.
