More information
The majestic landscape of Spitsbergen, characterised by mighty glaciers, deep fjords and imposing mountains, opens up before you. The unspoilt nature of this region will captivate your senses. 

Spitsbergen also offers a remarkable animal world. You could come across majestic polar bears living here in their natural environment. Walruses and reindeer are also at home here and often visible along the coast. The birdlife is diverse and fascinating. 

The Arctic nights turn into a unique experience as the midnight sun bathes the horizon in magical light. You have the opportunity to visit abandoned mines and settlements that bear witness to the rich history of this region. This transitional period, with long twilights, is very attractive for photographers. The lighting conditions during this phase offer a unique opportunity to capture the beauty and magic of the Arctic in pictures. The warm, soft light in the late evening and early morning hours create a very special atmosphere and are perfect for landscape and wildlife photography.
The expedition is accompanied by experienced guides who will impart valuable knowledge about the Arctic and its ecosystems. During the trip, you can take part in exciting activities such as hiking and even polar swimming.
Experience the Arctic in its full splendour by joining this unforgettable expedition with the Tallship Company. Be mesmerised by the magic of the polar region and return with memories of an adventure that will last a lifetime.

Luggage list

You should consider the "onion-skin principle".This means that you wear layers of clothing that you can put on or take off as required (We recommend woollen clothing.) On board and when going ashore, it is best to wear casual clothing. It is important to choose windproof and waterproof clothing to keep you dry and warm and to protect you from rain and splashing water in heavy seas. Weatherproof shoes are essential, and comfortable shoes with non-slip soles, such as trainers or all-terrain boots (hiking boots), are recommended for standing safely on deck and, if you wish, for finding your footing in the rigging. Waterproof boots are necessary to going ashore. Remember to bring several layers of clothing so that you can adapt to the changing weather. This includes a second set of rain or foul weather clothing. Don't forget to pack socks, warm underwear and sleeping clothes.


Good to know: We have two types of cabins on the Antigua: the standard cabins with bunk beds, shower and toilet and the spacious comfort cabins with separate single beds, shower and toilet. There are therefore two different cabin prices on the Antigua. Would you like to travel alone and not share a cabin?Then you can book a single supplement, which corresponds to the normal cruise price + 50%.

TIP: Please allow sufficient time for your journey and consider booking an overnight stay in Spitsbergen.
