Svalbard by Expedition Yacht

Sail Svalbard in search of the mighty polar bear on a small ship with a maximum of 12-14 guests. This is our favourite way to travel in the Arctic as it’s as close as you can get to a real expeditionary feel. The guest-to-guide ratio is highest with two expedition guides per 12-14 guests and the schedule is more flexible than on a bigger ship which means if the Expedition Leader hears word from another vessel that something interesting has been sighted, the captain can turn tail and take us there. Come as a guest, leave as part of our polar family. Location highlights include the usual stunning mountain vistas, bird cliffs, reindeer, walruses, polar bears, and whatever other wildlife we can find.

David makes every stop on the trip a highlight

I had a fantastic trip to Svalbard with David as a guide. His great experience and burning interest in the Arctic and Antarctica really shines through. He has an extensive knowledge of all parts of the wildlife but is at the same time also incredibly competent as a polar historian, making every stop on the trip a highlight.

We’re a different kind of agency. We work on the ships, with the teams, and are currently active in the polar regions. Our insider advice is truly that - straight from the field - and it's updated in real time if things change.


Everything you need to know about traveling to Antarctica. Including what time of the season is best for what you’re most keen to see.


Everything you need to know about traveling to the Arctic. Which is a bit like our proverbial backyard/second home (because we’ve lived there).


Everything you need to know about what to bring on your trip. Including unusual stuff like why you might want goggles in Antarctica, or extra batteries in Svalbard.
