Sailing Around Spitsbergen

This epic adventure with a small group of just 20 passengers will sail aboard the basic but comfortable schooner, the Noorderlicht. Manned by a skilled crew and expert naturalist/expedition leader, this voyage involves some participation with the handling of sails, taking the helm or being on watch during the night. Our journey will endeavour to sail around Spitsbergen, a vast wilderness, which is home to an incredible array of flora and fauna located just some 900kms south of the North Pole. Dramatic geological formations, a plethora of wildlife species and verdent summer flora make for a spectacular introduction to life in the Arctic.These voyages are dependent on the weather and the sea conditions, therefore the itinerary is only an outline.

traveller reviews

Most memorable parts of the trip were: seeing the Northern Lights on the first and second nights on board the ship, seeing a bear on the first morning, and walking onto a glacier.
