SVALBARD TOUR IN MAY 2021 OVERVIEW
IN SNOW-COVERED LANDSCAPES.
Welcome to our Svalbard tour in May 2021.
The early summer season is a truly unique month, when the sky is bright yet the landscape remains covered in snow and ice.
Svalbard changes rapidly at this time of the year
The drift ice and fjord ice melts, forcing the wildlife to follow.
We will also meet flocks of birds migrating northwards.
By May there is already constant light from the midnight sun.
The light will be harsh if the sky is clear in the daytime, but the sun is lower in the sky during the night.
Clouds will lower the impact from the sunlight and create different patterns and possibilities for pictures.
Nights can still be very cold and it’s possible to see wildlife resting and hunting on the ice-covered fjords.
In this bright winter-like environment, you can experience wildlife encounters in picture-perfect icy conditions by joining our Svalbard photo expedition.
Our wildlife expeditions are the ultimate in polar exploration at any time of year, but in May the light conditions combined with snow and ice covered landscapes create some iconic photo opportunities.
Nature in the High Arctic constantly changes
On Svalbard, every day is different, and every year is different.
The Norwegian-owned company Arctic Wildlife Tours leads this Svalbard tour
a remote area we know and love.
That’s important, because this is a land where your guides must know how to handle the constantly-changing weather conditions, drift ice, and wildlife on the move 24 hours a day.
The expedition ship is a ship well-suited to polar explorations.
Our Norwegian and Swedish guides that will lead the trip together with experienced crew members all speak excellent English and have long experience hiking and exploring Svalbard.

In May the areas that is accessible probably will be more limited than later in summer.
