Svalbard Liveaboard

The Expedition:

eXplora expedition proposes an expedition to the Svalbard islands aboard the icebreaker “Ulla Rinman”. This expedition will be unlike the ordinary arctic cruises with many people and a tight schedule. Instead we will take advantage of the day by day weather & sea condition and together with you, as part of the expedition team, we will decide the plan of the day. The icebreaker “Ulla Rinman” has a 25mm steel hull which really makes the difference to other cruises. We will be able to beat rough conditions and if required we can even break ice up to one meter thickness. The expedition will focus on the beautiful Isfjorden, Prins Karls Forland & Van Mijenfjorden. As you can see on the overview maps, each destination offers an enormous choice of expeditions targets. Our expedition plan is characterized giving the participants the very high chance to spot both Polar Bears and Cetaceans. You will sail through seas rich in life where it is easy to spot numerous species of whales, to see white bears, seals and walruses on the tops of drifting icebergs. But it goes also without saying, that we are in the wild arctic and wildlife can never be scheduled, or guaranteed to a specific time. Due to the our flexible itinerary we can take all time we need to observe spontaneous appearing wildlife, watch calving glaciers, or spend a day hiking instead of going into rough sea conditions. By using a small raft we get the chance to enter land, or discover beautiful bays. In short, we will have to chance to be at the right time at the right place and use the opportunities mother nature is offer to us. The expedition is particularly suitable for professional photographers and is restricted to only 6 participants. As already mentioned you will be part of the expedition team and we will all work together and act accordingly. Your crew members will be the captain of the ship, the ship engineer and a very experienced arctic guide which is professional arctic photographer at the same time. Together with you we will have an amazing discovery tour. Join us in a totally new and different arctic expedition.
