SVALBARD OCTOBER PHOTO EXPEDITION 2021
On short notice Arctic Wildlife Tours announce this October expedition on Svalbard onboard the sail yacht S/Y Arctica II. We have used this extremely ice friendly, flexible small yacht with great success.
In October the light can give the most unique light of the year with an extended blue hour and some possibilities for northern lights. This light enhances landscapes because of the remarkable colors and light. During this expedition we will have the opportunity to see and photograph wildlife like Polar Bears, Walruses, Bearded Seals and Arctic Foxes.
This is an expedition for nature photographers who are passionate about photographing in magical light conditions and who want the possibility to get the best out of each unique moment on this tour. October is not commonly used for doing cruises on Svalbard so this rare opportunity.
We will use two zodiac boats as usual to go ashore or when searching for wildlife at sea or in front of glaciers.
