The voyage

The Svalbard Express is a nostalgic voyage back to the northernmost reaches of the world, bathed in the ever-changing light of Norway’s summer sun.

The return of The Svalbard Express showcases the best of then and now. Our ground-breaking spirit. Remote hamlets splashed with red rorbuer. Historic ports. Rarely visited islands. Pristine Arctic wilderness prowled by polar bears and sea eagles.



This is our historic voyage from 1968, sailing to the edge of the world, revived for the modern traveller. You’ll journey in comfort aboard beautiful MS Trollfjord, sailing along the scenic Norwegian coast north to Spitsbergen, the largest of Svalbard’s islands.
