Photo Tour FAQs

The best time of year to join an Arctic photo tour depends on what you would like to see. Consider an early season trip in April or May to encounter the frozen wilderness of the Arctic in Svalbard. Consider a late season in trip to get the best light for landscape photography.

The best place to photograph polar bears in the Arctic is in Svalbard. Polar bears are present in Svalbard all year round. Between April and September we regularly encounter them on our Arctic photo tours. To find out more please visit our Svalbard photo tours page.

Svalbard is one of the best locations in the Arctic for wildlife photography. Due to its relatively small size there is a high concentration of wildlife including polar bears, walruses, Arctic foxes and Svalbard reindeer making Svalbard one of our favourite Arctic photo tours destinations. 

You can read about the wildlife in Svalbard in our guide

Greenland, due to its larger size, means wildlife is spread out further making sightings less frequent.  

Greenland is home to some of the most stunning landscapes on Earth framed by gigantic icebergs. Expect unlimited scenery, high granite peaks in the south, and remote fjords in the east.

Svalbard also offers fantastic opportunities for landscape photographers with 2,000 glaciers, frozen seascapes early in the season and beautiful colours in September.

The best time to visit Antarctica on a photo tour is between November and March. During the winter months it is not possible to reach Antarctica by ship.

The best time to visit South Georgia on a photo tour is between November and March. During the winter months it is not possible to reach South Georgia by ship.
