Svalbard/Spitsbergen Sailing Expedition - 10 days
Join our flagship adventure during Arctic summer, a sophisticated and experience-packed trip. We intend for it to become your greatest holiday ever! You will take part in a sailing expedition through some of the Arctic’s most staggering landscapes.
This trip is conducted by one of the other quality companies we work with on Svalbard that are hand picked for this cooperation.
For pictures of the boat we normally use, just mail us.
We are also planning a 15 day circumnavigation around all of Spitzbergen which is the biggest island on Svalbard. That is the ultimate sailing expedition up here. Will maybe be from Aug 1st to 15th. Feel free to mail us if you are interested to join.
Svalbard is about as far north you can go, if not to discover only ocean. Midway between mainland Norway and the North Pole, Svalbard offers one of the true paradises on earth.
The Mystery of Svalbard
Geologists can't fully explain how this gorgeous landmass was created. The virgin landscapes of Svalbard generously present you with islands, beaches, breathtaking fjords, stunning wildlife encounters and an arctic color palette producing world’s greatest photo opportunities. You will leave Svalbard with answers and questions.
Did you know: “Arctic” means Bear – so “Antarctic” means No Bear (from Greek: arktos). In other words, you would not see polar bears in the Antarctic.

The boat in the video is now sold. We are now using boats that are more suited for this trip, owned and run by other tour operators.
Like a dream
Our mission is to offer the kind of trips we have been dreaming about, with the right equipment, the right guides, the right destinations, and only in small groups. We offer discriminatingly quality-minded trips.
Advantages of this adventure configuration
We include most of what you need on this sailing expedition. You can save a lot of money not buying expensive equipment that you perhaps don't even need back home.
It is impossible to have a fixed itinerary on Svalbard. The wind, the ocean, the weather, the pack ice, and the wildlife are unpredictable, and we just have to adapt to this on a day-to-day basis.
ON LAND TOO
We will have epic and easy hikes on land every day to embrace the surroundings: Glaciers, birds, wild animals, old settlements, research stations and more. You will get plenty of Instagram-worthy pictures from these trips.
We offer ecologically sustainable and responsible tours. Travelling in small groups is an essential part of the ecotourism concept, as small groups have lesser impact on nature and will not disturb the wildlife unnecessarily.
Our trips are approved by the official travel company to Norway, Visit Norway.
