Spitsbergen Holidays

Lying about half way between Norway and the North Pole, Spitsbergen is the largest island in the Svalbard archipelago which was ceded to Norway by international treaty in 1920. Justin, our MD, took some friends and went dog sledding for four days while both Sue and Sarah have cruised the waters in a variety of different vessels.

Why we like Spitsbergen

For a start it is considerably less than the price of the Antarctic and while the scenery is perhaps not so dramatic it is infinitely more variable and the wildlife, including walrus, polar bear, reindeer, whales and a plethora of birds, is arguably more interesting. In addition it is much quicker to fly there and your adventure starts from the day you arrive without the long crossing of Drake’s Passage.
