Expedition Svalbard - a life changing experience
Halfway between mainland Norway and the North Pole lies Svalbard – one of the world’s most magnificent wildernesses. From the airplane windows you get a first glimpse of the Arctic landscapes, but the real adventure starts when we leave the civilisation behind with one of our small expedition ships. We set out into the untamed wilderness, surrounded by ice blue glaciers, dramatic mountains and mirror-like fjords. No two days are alike - sometimes you might be woken up in the middle of the bright night if a polar bear has been spotted on the ice. In this short film some of fantastic travellers and guides tell us about their great experiences in the Arctic wilderness.

Since 1999, we have taken travellers on once-in-a-lifetime trips to Svalbard. From May to September our three small expedition ships, carrying only 12 and 53 passengers, explore this magnificent Arctic archipelago. Unpredictability and flexibility are the main keywords when you travel with PolarQuest as the exact route depends on weather, ice conditions and wildlife encounters. Sometimes you might be woken up in the middle of the night if a polar bear has been spotted on the ice.
