The world's edge 

Your adventure begins in Oslo with a flight to Longyearbyen, the world’s northernmost town. An overnight stay gives you time to explore before we attempt to cross the 80th parallel north. Explore Svalbard's stunning nature reserves, where seabirds such as Brunnich’s Guillemots and kittiwakes nest on the soaring cliffs. 

Journey of discovery 

On land, you’ll be keeping an eye out for reindeer and the elusive polar bear, while in the seas, whales and seals can be observed as we head for the fjords of Hornsund. Learn about the history of Arctic whalers and explorers as we continue to Isfjord, before returning to Longyearbyen.

Our Svalbard Attempts are expeditions where we, in true expedition style, challenge the elements and the ice-edge of the Arctic Ocean, to circumnavigate this remote archipelago – in a safe way. Several alternative routes combined with our deep knowledge of the area and flexibility are key factors to giving you the most amazing experience.
