Hike & sail Svalbard - 8 days
A once-in-a-lifetime expedition!
Join us for a week of exploration and discover the legendary Svalbard archipelago by sailboat!
The summer is a major time of the year for the Arctic wildlife : reindeers grass on the toundra, thousands of sea-birds migrate for feeding & breeding, whales roam the fjords in search of plankton : blue whales, beluga whales, minke whales, humpback whales... If we are lucky we might also see the Polar bear, the "king of the arctic"!
We use a high comfort steel sailboat build for extreme conditions in Polar regions. Perfect for groups of 8-10 people and all kinds of expeditions around the archipelago. Family groups, friends, photographers, etc. Five cabins, all with private facilities.
Our sailboat brings you everyday from fjords to glaciers, at the start of a new itinerary, through the most beautiful landscapes. Thanks to the boat we can drop off and pick-up the group in many places, and many itineraries are possible, accessible to all levels : loops, circuits, fjord-crossings... We can pick you up almost everywhere.
