Arctic expeditions is our specialty. Our expeditions on Svalbard has a focus on wildlife photography. On main-land Nordic countries we rent out high-quality photo hides. Our goal is to full-fill your dreams of taking stunning images of rare Arctic wildlife in its natural habitats. Our Arctic 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 Arctic expeditions. But we also welcome less experienced photographers and nature enthusiasts into our world, so you can see what we see.
