Epic Expeditions

Epic experience on Svalbard. Photo: Terje NilssenFar out in the Barents Sea, midway between Norway’s North Cape and the North Pole, lies Svalbard as a majestic world of untouched fjords and mountains, glaciers and Arctic tundra. This archipelago is home to around 3,000 people, and even more polar bears, walruses, whales, seals, reindeers and polar foxes, not to mention millions of sea birds.

Experience your life's greatest adventure

Svalbard is one of the world’s most spectacular and best preserved natural areas. It’s also a perfect place to gain content for a book about your greatest experiences. On an epic Svalbard adventure, the main challenges are having a big enough memory card in your camera, and managing to stay awake because, as you will quickly discover, the landscapes and natural attractions up here are hung up like works of art along the entire travel route. In the summertime, this is the land of the Midnight Sun and shining light around the clock. In winter time, you can experience vast starry skies, fluttering dayside Northern Lights, pastel horizons and evocative blue light that lasts virtually the entire day.

Epic experience on Svalbard.The truly great nature experiences

Under Epic Expeditions, we have gathered experiences and services suitable for guests wishing to have majestic nature-based experiences, and who are willing to spend the time and money to achieve them. We are talking about people who allow enough time to travel out into the great landscapes by expedition boat. Or people who are physically equipped and mentally motivated for more challenging expeditions by ski, dog sled or snowmobile. Not to forget people who have an above average interest in the unique animal life and are ready to travel far enough into the wilderness to experience it.

“Great white plateaus, wind, I’m fascinated by the universe, the forces of nature, feeling that I’m alive.” – Polar explorer Liv Arnesen
