  • DAY 1 - Arrival in Svalbard
    We will meet in Longyearbyen, Svalbard’s capital. We will let you know exactly where and when to be there and our driver will pick you up from the airport. This day is mostly about settling in, relaxing and organizing everything for tomorrow’s expedition.
  • DAY 2-10 - The Expedition
    In the morning, Roie Galitz, will show you around lovely Longyearbyen. You will have time to shop for souvenirs and anything else you might need for the expedition - this is the place to get it. In the afternoon, we will embark the M/S Origo and after a safety briefing, we will head out to the northern tip of the Archipelago. We will set out to explore the fjords, bays, icebergs and of course the fast ice of the north pole. The exact locations will be determined while on board, according to sea ice condition and the whereabouts of wildlife, primarily the mighty polar bear. During this journey, Roie Galitz and the boat staff will teach us about the Arctic animals and nature surrounding us. Since it will be the peak season, we expect to see mothers with cubs and single males roaming along the island’s shores. We might even spot Arctic Foxes near their dens with pups. During our extended expedition cruise, we hope to enjoy the view of seals, walruses, whales and many birds. Thanks to our boat size, we will have many opportunities no other bigger boat can get - this is an amazing privilege in the high Arctic!
  • DAY 11 - Disembarkation
    We will get back to Longyearbyen harbor and spend our last night on board in the harbor. Depending on your flight times, you can disembark the boat whenever you wish until 09:00 am the following day.

  • As with any trip, not to mention, a trip to remote destinations, when level of infrastructure and medicine is low or when adventurous activities are involved, there are always risks and dangers on the way. These can cause serious injury and even worse. It is important to be aware of these dangers. It is the responsibility of travelers to make sure they have all the information they need before embarking on a trip.

  • We believe that a good journey is a journey where every participant can work at their own pace and take their unique photos. Therefore, as part of the nature of this journey, travelers will walk independently on the various sites. It is important to note that India is considered safe, but at the same time, it is necessary to exercise caution and travelers must be aware of their orientation, returning to the meeting point at the appointed time. The group and guides cannot wait for delayed participants. 

  • The content of the activities and their order will be determined by the instructors, as they take into account road conditions, weather and other aspects. As with any developing country, tourism infrastructure may differ from those in Western countries. Most issues are usually resolved with a little patience and good spirit.

Why Phototeva?

Our experiences are not your typical organized group trip. We skip the corny tourist traps and seek the immersive cultural experience: the interaction with the locals, the small village where buses don’t stop and the in-depth exploration of country. We won’t sugar coat anything; we’ll talk about the wonderful aspects as well as the history and current challenges that India faces today.
