Exclusive photographic charter in the Svalbard Archipelago accompanied by Paul Goldstein and Mark Carwardine.
The transfer to the ship takes place in the afternoon. Once on board there is a get together for introductions to the expedition team, to learn about the ship and its layout, talk about the itinerary for the next 12 days and participate in the obligatory lifeboat drill. Departure from Longyearbyen is normally around 6:00 p.m.
A photographic charter is unlike any other Spitsbergen expedition. It maximises every possible opportunity for photography and its agenda is very clear. This trip concentrates on Polar bears and will often spend many hours or days in the sea ice searching for them. Polar bears on ice are pretty close to the wildlife grail and it takes work to find them. However, with 24 hours of daylight, the opportunities are increased by the complete lack of a timetable. Walrus, Arctic foxes, bird colonies and ice are also high on the list, but Polar bears remain the principle quarry. With a superb team of experts on board and the finest polar vessel - the Akademik Sergey Vavilov - no-one has ever been short-changed. Expect to become a better photographer, expect some mind-blowing scenery and expect to be woken at all hours. You’ve been warned!
We arrive back into Longyearbyen early this morning and on disembarking after breakfast you are either transferred to your hotel or the airport.
