New adventures ahead!

We very much look forward to plan and prepare for great adventures ahead. Many of our Svalbard expeditions in 2021 are already fully booked, so for those of you who wish to explore the kingdom of the polar bear, please note that there is limited availability. Recently, we have also launched several departures to the untamed wilderness of Northeast Greenland with the new 12-passenger ship M/S Balto. 

We enthusiastically look forward to when we once again will explore the beautiful corners of our world.

Our warmest regards,

Marie, Carina, Lillemor, Johanna, Mia, Emma, Johan, Niklas, Sara, Heidi, Jenny, Henrik
