All guests receive their own exclusive parka, included with their tour.  The high-performance parka is designed specifically for adventuring in the polar regions’ frozen climate, and combines functional cold-weather features like breathable waterproof fabric, a removable 5cm (2 in) ThinsulateTM liner, reflective taping by 3M, and a removable hood with microfleece lining.

Travel in a small ship

  • Our clients are allocated small ships for this journey, ensure that everyone is well taken care of with a high staff-to-client ratio.  In addition, travelling in smaller ships ensure smoother travel in the Antarctic terrain, and also more opportunities to go on land with a smaller group rotation.

  2. Day 2 13th June 2020

    This voyage is spent travelling in the world in which the polar bear survives. Our wildlife viewing opportunities are enhanced by exploring as many remote areas as possible. Spotting wildlife like the Arctic fox, Svalbard reindeer, and land or sea birds can be difficult, but well worth the effort.

    Ice and weather conditions permitting we can explore near sea ice, through fjords that lead to glaciers and icebergs, and discover bird nesting colonies, all from the platform of the ship. Alternatively, hop in a Zodiac to explore more closely, or be brought to land to visit historical sites and experience the tundra. We are always on the lookout for wildlife, ranging from endangered and rare polar species to sea mammals and birds. And, of course, we’ll have our eyes peeled for polar bears – they can be found all throughout this region, but finding them can require patience and persistence. Come join us in the search!

    Early-season voyages often provide the greatest opportunity to see large ice floes in the Arctic pack ice, which usually means excellent wildlife viewing. Later in the season, the group can cover more territory, which may allow the chance to explore more of the archipelago. This can lead into the less explored regions, or the continental edges where large whales are attracted by nutrient rich upwellings.

    Each day will be planned to take advantage of local ice and weather conditions. Distances are relatively short in the Archipelago and as there are no ocean crossings, the seas are normally calm. During these six days visit ice covered seas, fjords with breathtaking mountain scenery and glaciers flowing into the sea.

    Possibility to cruise in Zodiacs along the ice edge viewing seals or walrus, in fjords with glaciers spilling down to the sea or in front of spectacular seabird cliffs.
