TROMSO SVALBARD -    

Welcome on board for our journey of discovery from Tromsø to Svalbard  with time exploring the south west coast of Svalbard, passing stunning Arctic landscapes and hopefully seeing the local wildlife, exploring remote bays and Bear Island after embarking on a 400nm sail across the Barents Sea.


Norwegian Flag  NorwayImage

Land of inspirational landscapes, sheer beauty, cosmopolitan cities, grand architecture, breath-taking deep blue fjords and sublime vistas all are on offer in abundance in Norway. Norway enjoys favourable weather due to the influence of the Gulf Stream means that the weather is milder than expected for a country which is as far north as Siberia and Alaska. The most striking phenomenon has to be the Midnight Sun when the sun never sets during the peak of summer as for those living in Arctic Norway the sun never falls below the horizon. Discover yourself on our Iceland to Norway adventure.

Norwegian Flag  TromsøImage

Arguably offering one of the best vantage points above the Arctic Circle for viewing the famous and spectacular phenomenon of the aurora borealis, or northern lights, which are a result of the collision between solar wind particles and air molecules in the earth's atmosphere, and then transferring their energy into light? The city also has a distinctive skyline and architecture with its quirky wooden houses, many centuries old and the Arctic Cathedral which was built in 1965, resplendent with its peaked roof and lofty stained-glass windows, the cathedral dominates all buildings around it.

Svalbard Flag  SVALBARD (SPITSBERGEN)

The island of Svalbard lies in the Arctic Ocean in an area approximately the same size as Ireland in the Svalbard archipelago. Surprisingly Spitsbergen is neither as cold nor as remote as people might at first think and offers the visitor a truly arctic experience. Sailing along this truly magnificent and hauntingly beautiful unspoilt and undeveloped coastline, visiting secluded inlets and spending time to explore and discover the wonders of Spitsbergen and the archipelago and as importantly to reconnect with life and re-discover your spiritual self whilst contemplating the end of this journey of discovery.
