To Svalbard with skipper and guide

 You will experience the rich bird- and animal life, combined with enormous glaciers and stunning scenery of Svalbard. This is a dream for all nature lovers and photographers. The geological history of Svalbard can be read in every mountain we pass and reminders of ancient creatures like Predator X and historical elements for the last 400 years can be found over the whole archipelago.

The yacht is your home and we comfortably sail to new destinations every day. Along the way we watch out for whales, walruses, polar bears and the extraordinary rich bird life and stop at interesting places. The skipper & guide will plan the journey together with you.

We spend much time a shore. Polar bear is a natural part of the habitat, and we, as human beings need to accept that we are guest on their land and behave accordingly. The guide will ensure that you are safe during land expeditions and the skipper will take you safely throughout the sea journey. Sleeping on the yacht eliminates the risk of a hungry visitor during night.

 Food is one of the most important feel good factors. During the trip, we prepare high quality courses based on the best available supplies. And maybe the skipper has paid a visit to one of Europe's best wine cellars that just happen to be in one of the many mines of Longyearbyen.The Norwegian chef Adolf Lindstrøm was considered to be an important success factor for Arctic expeditions around 1900.
Boreal Yachting proudly maintains this tradition.
