Svalbard Information

Welcome to our Svalbard information pages. Here you will find a forever-growing resource of information on Svalbard expeditions as we continue to grow our in-house knowledge and expertise, and share it with you.

As one of the best places to see polar bears in the wild, Svalbard safaris predominantly revolve around expedition ships that set out to explore the shorelines and Arctic ice floes of Spitsbergen. Later in the season as the ice melts, some of our expeditions even attempt to circumnavigate Spitsbergen whilst wildlife highlights, aside from polar bears, include walrus, arctic fox, caribou and even whales.

Aside from expedition ships, we also offer some land based safaris even taking in snowmobiling out to a ship frozen in the ice! Spend a few days here exploring the surrounds and then return to the comfort of the Trappers Hotel.

For further information on those questions and answers that you need to know, please browse our resources page below. 

If you do not find the answer you are looking for, please just contact us and we would be more than happy to help.
