SVALBARD PHOTO EXPEDITION EARLY SUMMER 2019

An adventure into the ice

Once again Arctic Wildlife Tours visits the naked shores of Svalbard and  search in the icy waters for photographing wildlife. We use the old fashion ship MS Malmö for this photo expedition into the Svalbard wilderness. We will have a main focus on searching in the drift ice and fjords for wildlife as Polar Bears, Walruses, whales, seals and birdlife. This will be a specialized Svalbard photo expedition, but not only for the professionals. If you are an amateur or a new beginner with your camera this journey still suites you!

This particular Svalbard expedition will last 10 nights and will give us good time to explore the Svalbard nature. Read about some of the previous trips on Be Inspired pages.

Travel Route Svalbard photo expedition

Itinerary

The expedition and itinerary will be planned in accordance with prevailing weather and ice conditions. Normally we will still have the drift ice close in June/July and where we can sail will be a decision made from the ice situation. We will have two alternative routes, either to the vest and north or to the south and east. In June/July the areas that is accessible probably will be more limited than later in summer.

Day 0 We always recommend to arrive Longyearbyen at least one day and night in advance.

Day 1 Departure from Longyearbyen through Isfjorden. Heading north or south, depending on the drift ice situation, into the drifting ice.

Day 2-10 We set course for the areas where we know we will meet the drift ice. If we sail north or south this will be the focus. Some of the fjords and islands is interesting to visit and we will search systematically for wildlife wherever we go.

The route is just a estimate for where we can sail. This can, and probably will, be changed as we know this from our earlier expedition.

Day 11 Leaving the ship after breakfast and prepare the travel home.
