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.

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.
