This expedition provides the chance to experience the thrills that come with exploring the Svalbard Archipelago, with its stunning landscape and wildlife, in a shorter time.
The Svalbard Archipelago is both remote and spectacular, and yet also relatively small and easily accessible. These shorter 9-day voyages are perfect for those without the time, but with the desire to have a more exciting European holiday than most! Just a short flight from the UK, with no time difference and perpetual summer daylight, this land of peaks and glaciers is an enticing partner for any lover of the wilderness. The wildlife in Spitsbergen is diverse; seals,walrus, Arctic foxes, and at the top of the food chain, Polar bears.
What makes this trip responsible?
We take extremely seriously our responsibility to minimise our impact on these pristine areas. Exodus is an Associate Member of the International Association of Antarctica Tour Operators (IAATO) and has agreed to abide by one of the tourism world's most conscientious codes of conduct. Our ship operators in Spitsbergen are also members of the Association of Arctic Expedition Cruise Operators (AECO), which covers operations in Spitsbergen.
However, perhaps the single most important thing any polar travel company can do, is educate their clients to travel sensitively and compassionately. Our expedition team on each ship takes this part of their role very seriously, and looks forward to explaining how everyone can play their part.
