Inquisitive Walrus bull and Zodiac by ORYX participant Paolo Stella
Lying a mere 600 miles from the North Pole, Spitsbergen is the largest island of the Svalbard Archipelago. Draped in darkness during the long northern winter, this frigid land is dramatically transformed into a place of perpetual sunshine during our summer visit. The landscape photography is nothing short of sensational, with towering snowcapped mountains, forbidding glaciers and flower-studded tundra. An abundance of iconic Arctic mammals also occur, including whales, Walrus, Arctic Fox, Reindeer and the most sought-after of them all, Polar Bear, which we stand an excellence chance of photographing at close range. Bird photography is also spectacular here, and the more special species include Ivory Gull, King Eider and vast colonies of breeding guillemots. Our epic high Arctic photo safari will reveal the highlights of Spitsbergen as we explore great photographic subjects by zodiac, hike through tundra, and break into pack ice on this unforgettable expedition.
ORYX’s regular client Mr. Paolo Stella from Italy captured this comical image of a Walrus bull who showed immense interest in one of our Zodiac’s on ORYX’s 2014 Spitsbergen Photo Expedition.
For a chance to capture your own images of these majestic creatures we invite you to join multi award-winning photographer and polar expert Elliott Neep on a Spitsbergen – Arctic Photographic Symposium from 03 Jul – 13 Jul 2015 (11 days).
