Overland Track

The knowledge of the guides was brilliant and really made the trip a great success. The effort they put into everything from our safety to dessert was amazing - I am very impressed. This walk was above and beyond all of my expectations!

Spitsbergen Adventure

Located just some 900kms south of the North Pole, the island of Spitsbergen, is a vast and wild wilderness, home to an incredibly diverse array of flora and fauna. The exhilaration of sighting Polar Bear as they roam the ice in search of food, watching the playful activities of Grey Seals or observing a group of walrus are just some of the highlights found on this voyage. Zodiacs will ferry us from our ice-strengthened vessels to shore to walk amongst the tundra up to high points where there are sweeping views across the vast glaciated inland and down to the iceberg-strewn bay where our ship is dwarfed by the monumental landscape. The island’s bird life is prolific, with colonies of Little Auks, Black Guillemots, Brünnich’s Guillemots, Puffins and Arctic Skuas accessible to visitors. Dramatic cliffs, fjords, glaciers and an abundance of wildlife make this an unforgettable experience in the land of the midnight sun.
