All about the Paul Goldstein Spitsbergen Photographic Charter.

Spitsbergen has 24 hours of daylight which Paul intends to maximise on this photographic charter. We will not follow a rigid itinerary but instead concentrate on Polar bears, walrus, vast bird colonies and glaciers. Exodus has done many of these special departures and they never short-change.*Paul Goldstein, Expedition Leader*Exodus guide and award-winning photographer Paul Goldstein has often said that he is happiest on the plains of the Masai Mara or the decks of a ship in the Polar regions. Having completed over twenty expeditions, his choice for our summer months is Spitsbergen. Paul has a ridiculous amount of energy and is, as the Sunday Times described him, ‘a preposterously vivacious guide of almost psychotic gusto’.

  1. Day 1  Start Longyearbyen.

    The transfer to the ship takes place in the afternoon. Once on board there is a get together for introductions to the expedition team, to learn about the ship and its layout, talk about the expedition and participate in the obligatory lifeboat drill. Departure from Longyearbyen is normally around 6:00 p.m.

  2. Day 2-10 Exploring Spitsbergen and the Svalbard Archipelago.

    A photographic charter is unlike any other Spitsbergen expedition. It maximises every possible opportunity for photography and its agenda is very clear.This trip concentrates on Polar bears and will often spend many hours or days in the sea ice searching for them. Polar bears on ice are pretty close to the wildlife grail and it takes work to find them. However, with 24 hours of daylight, the opportunities are increased by the complete lack of a timetable. Walrus, Arctic foxes, bird colonies and ice are also high on the list, but Polar bears remain the principle quarry.With a superb team of experts on board and travelling on the Polar Pioneer, you will not be short-changed. Expect to become a better photographer, expect some mind-blowing scenery and expect to be woken at all hours. You’ve been warned!

  3. Day 11 Disembark and end in Longyearbyen.

    We arrive back into Longyearbyen early this morning and on disembarking after breakfast you are either transferred to your post-expedition hotel or the airport.
