The Arctic Expedition Experience P3 Summit Itinerary and Tour Information
The Spitzbergen Archipelago are the northern most inhabited islands on the planet. Set in the High Arctic a few hundred miles from the North Pole, the archipelago of Svalbard is a silent wilderness of jaw-dropping beauty. This is a realm of pristine fjords and jagged mountain peaks where polar bears are known to roam.
Taking part in our series of short expeditions by dogsled, on snowmobile and on skis will increase your chances of spotting polar bears along the shores or across the ice.
Over 5 days, in temperatures of -20 degrees below freezing, you will participate in a series of extreme physical and mental tasks designed to take you out of your comfort-zone and in doing so challenge you to become an even stronger leader.
