Private Svalbard Expeditions
Svalbard is a magical frozen wilderness situated just 800 miles from the North Pole. It is one of the best places on earth to see polar bears in their natural Arctic habitat along with an abundance of other wildlife including walruses, Svalbard reindeer, Arctic foxes and fascinating birdlife.
Secret Atlas offers private tours of Svalbard onboard an ice-strengthened expedition vessel that can accommodate up to 12 guests in comfortable cabins. We operate private expeditions from 7 – 14 + days in Svalbard between May and September each year. Our expeditions come fully staffed and ready to go with everything you need including an expedition leader and guide who will take you ashore to explore on a daily basis and permits.
Example 9 Day Svalbard Expedition
A 9-day expedition cruise allows enough time to do a detailed exploration of the north-west coast of Spitsbergen. Here we will encounter glaciers, tranquil fjords, and we will attempt to visit the sea ice edge if conditions allow.
Example 14 Day Svalbard Expedition
A 14-day expedition cruise is the perfect amount of time to do a circumnavigation of Spitsbergen. This is possible from July – September each year but is subject to the sea ice conditions which vary from year to year.
Private Greenland Expeditions
Greenland is the largest island on Earth and home to just 56,000 people. The wilderness of Greenland is not like any other place and a perfect way to encounter it is on a private expedition along the coast. Greenland is home to some of the largest icebergs on the planet, varied wildlife and interesting local cultures.
