Encounter Norway in Remote and Refined Svalbard


If there is anything on this planet that can be labelled as 'unique', this is it! Remote Arctic Svalbard Archipelago is one of the last great wildernesses on earth and is just 1300km (810 miles) below the North Pole. Bespoke travel company 'Up Norway' offers a variety of exceptional and memorable experiences and have created two enchanting itineraries for the ultimate arctic adventure.

Far Out in Svalbard

The exotic island is remote enough to house the world's biggest seed bank yet refined enough to boast one of the world's most extensive wine cellars.  Your adventure includes inimitable landscapes, wildlife, surprisingly diverse cuisine including the northernmost brewed beer and insights into Arctic permaculture in sub-zero conditions. Cruise the stunning fjords and conquer glaciers with your new ice-climbing skills. You may even have an 'Attenborough' moment and spot birds, whales, seals or polar bears.  You will also visit the mysteriously abandoned pyramid, an eerie but picturesque uninhabited ghost town which was a former Russian mining establishment.

Duration: 7 days Best time to visit: June - September Price: From UKP 2,710 per person

Includes:

  • Airport express transfers to and from the accommodation
  • Accommodation and breakfast on days 1 and 4, and accommodation and full board on days 2 and 4
  • Beer tasting at Svalbard Brewery, an instructional tour on Arctic permaculture, a guided cruise and glacier hike excursion
  • A Co2 investment of approx. UKP 23
  • Up Norway services and digital travel guide.
