      Photo Safari

      The nine days of your Svalbard Photo Safari will be spent on the M/S Stockholm as it explores the fjords, glaciers, and incredible landscapes of the Svalbard Archipelago. The exact day to day itinerary is flexible and will be determined by photographic opportunities, weather conditions and the density of the pack ice in the North.

      The Stockholm is a great vessel for photography. Some of the photographic experiences will be done from the ship, itself, but numerous zodiac excursions and island landings and also scheduled. The daily itinerary will be discussed each night at dinner and again at breakfast each morning.

      During the cruise, there will be times when the ship spends time at sea merely to get to the next location, but this makes for great time to work on your image catalog, relax in your cabin, or take landscape images of the incredible landscapes that Svalbard is so well known for. On the last evening of the cruise, sail back to Longyearbyen and arrive late in the evening.
