Sail to Svalbard

Sail to Svalbard


This is the really big one, a true bucket list experience for any adventurer who has dreamt of crossing the ocean to the frozen kingdom of the ice bear. Departing from Bodo in northern Norway, we will first make our way through the stunning fjords before picking a weather window to set out across the open ocean to Longyearbyen in Svalbard. From there we will spend the rest of the expedition exploring the elemental arctic landscape of ice and rock, keeping our eyes peeled for whales, walruses and polar bears.
