Svalbard October light expedition and workshop. This is a unique opportunity to experience the fantastic light between the Arctic autumn light and winter darkness.
June is considered early summer season for Svalbard photography. Its still good ice conditions, some years its still frozen around the islands. June is considered as a more and more interesting time to search for and see wildlife around Svalbard.
Svalbard is famous for its fjords and mountains, surrounded by drifting ice depending on which season it is. Fascinating wildlife as Polar Bears, Arctic Foxes, Reindeers and Walruses attract a great many visitors. Svalbard also provides the visitor with tremendous opportunities for great scenic views.
This will be the second year we are chartering the ship MS Freya, spacious and strong ship, to do this photo wildlife expedition. In early June we expect it to still be drift ice around Svalbard and we work with animals and birds in the ice.
We are preparing the expeditions for 2019 and 2020. For this mid summer Svalbard expedition in 2020 we are chartering the ship MS Malmö, which is well suited for these kind of expeditions. We have used Malmö several times before and love this old fashion ship.
