2023 Svalbard | Spitsbergen 8 days Arctic Spring
Join the Reade Swan // Noorderlicht in a trip to Arctic Spring of Spitsbergen. Experience the fjords, ice, see the whales and polarbears!
Sailing expedition to Spitsbergen
The trips in the Arctic spring are one of the most beautiful and purest trips that sailing ship Noorderlicht makes. The landscape is still pristine white and because there is often floating ice in the fjords, there is a great chance of spotting polar bears, seals & walruses.
From the end of April in Svalbard we experience the midnight sun, which means that there are 24 hours of daylight. In the mornings and evenings, the light is phenomenal, making these trips extremely suitable for photography enthusiasts.
Day 1: Embarkation in Longyearbyen
You will arrive at the small airport of Longyearbyen, located about 15 minutes drive from the centre of the small town.
Our sailing ship Reade Swan // Noorderlicht will be waiting for you at the so-called ‘floating pier' where you can embark from 16:00. After a welcome from the captain, the mooring lines will be cast off andthe ship sets course towards Trygghamna bay, where it will anchor for the night.
Day 2-7: TBD
Day 8: Goodbye Reade Swan // Noorderlicht
In the morning at 09:00 you will disembark. Our adventure through the Arctic landscape of Spitsbergen has come to an end.
