We do this exclusive Svalbard photography expedition in August onboard the expedition ship MS Freya. We plan to stay in the drift ice as much as possible on this expedition and we will have high focus on Polar Bears.
We are preparing the expeditions for 2021 after a difficult corona year. For this summer Svalbard expedition in 2021 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.
In August, Arctic is at its explosive best. A lot of the snow has melted yet some of it remains, creating interesting patterns in the landscape. Wildlife are on the move so it’s easier to see Svalbard wildlife at this time of year.
Join us for this Svalbard wildlife photography expedition and search for the autumn light in September on Svalbard. In September a few snow patches are left from winter and the landscapes may be covered by a thin layer of fresh snow.
Explore Svalbard at a time of the year when colors comes back on the sky. Late August will be a few weeks before the autumn and darkness arrives again. This is the best time of the year finding and experiencing Polar Bears.
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.
