To Visit Svalbard (Spitsbergen) is a dream many people never achieve. This is your chance. Icebergs, whales, polar bears & stunning beauty. All from our safe 72ft yacht, we will be sailing from Tromsø in Norwary and heading north, across the Barents Sea for over 400 nm and up to 75 degrees north, we will have a full two weeks exploring the coast of Svalbard.

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.

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. 

  • Day 1 – Join the boat in Spitsbergen 18:00. Welcome reception, introductions and itinerary discussion. Dinner served at 20:00
  • Day 2 – Breakfast followed by safety briefing. Our first day sailing will be spent familiarising ourselves with the boat and team building
  • Day 3 – After breakfast we will spend time discussing the route and route planning, before heading out overnight, taking turn on watch
  • Days 4 - 9 – Cruise Spitsbergen. This leg of the voyage will be conditional on prevailing ice and weather conditions; hopefully we will be able to visit the following places of interest including Bellsund, Prins Karls Forland, Edgeøy, Barentsøya and Hornsund. On arrival at each point of interest we go ashore if safety permits.
  • Days 10 - 12 – We will call at Bear Island, the southernmost island of the Norwegian Svalbard archipelago, here we will anchor and spend time relaxing before commencing the journey ahead
  • Day 13 & 14 – After breakfast we sail to our final destination Tromsø, sailing at a leisurely pace we will take turns in taking the watch
  • Day 15 – Disembark in Tromsø where our trip concludes and we bid farewell

We take your safety and that of the vessel extremely seriously and as such we reserve the right to alter or amend itineraries in the case of bad weather, tide or Foreign Office/Maritime Agencies advice.
