Vega Expeditions – Your Arctic guide since 2010

Welcome to Vega! We organize active photo—and nature expeditions to Svalbard and Greenland.

Traveling in small groups allows us to experience the wild while staying safe, comfortable, and responsible. Since 2010, we have accompanied experienced nature photographers, extreme skiers and adventurous tourists to one of the most challenging environments in the world.

Chartering small, ice-strengthened vessels and working with the most qualified guides, lecturers and local experts is what makes Vega a quality brand. We offer the ultimate adventure to those who want to experience the Arctic wilderness.

The Polar Night lasts from 26 October to 15 February, when the only natural light sources are the moon, the stars and the Northern Lights. March to May is the ‘pastel winter‘, when the darkness transitions to light, casting beautiful pastel colours over the snow-covered landscape.

Svalbard – Early summer expedition 10/06 – 18/06/2023

Photo expedition

During early summer, there is a lot of sea-ice around the north of Svalbard and fjords are still covered with fast ice. Breeding birds arrive and are in full display. We sail into the fjords and spend lots of time in the pack-ice, ensuring amazing photo-opportunities.

Summer in Svalbard is unique. Midsummer Sun sets in, nature is at its height, birds are breeding. The fjords are no longer fully covered in ice, the tundra blooms, and we discover large numbers of whales, seals and birds coming to Svalbard. With less pack ice surrounding the archipelago, we sail further northeast to explore the northern border.
