Svalbard Autumn
Polar autumn light in Svalbard
Explore Svalbard in autumn
The main subjects on this Svalbard Autumn Light photo expedition will be wildlife and landscapes in stunning late season light. Svalbard is the best place in the worlf to photograph Polar bears, and we hope to find some of them in the best light available. The ice condition at this time of year usually allows us to explore the northeastern parts of the archipelago, making this a very special Svalbard photo tour.
September is a great time for watching and photographing big whales. We have good chances of finding Blue whale, Fin whale, Humpback whale, Mink whale, Beluga and the White-beaked dolphins. The light conditions are great at this time of year, so get ready for some stunning wildlife photography. This is the Svalbard photo tour for nature photographers focusing on great light. Join us for an unforgettable experience!
As usual on all our Svalbard photo tours we will plan for longer stops than normal tourist cruises when going ashore, in order to provide participants with enough time to get excellent pictures. We use 2 zodiac boats to get ashore or when searching for wildlife at sea.
