With Barents Expeditions, you can travel into the real world of the arctic.

It’s cold, it’s big, it’s challenging, and it is absolutely wonderful.

We invite you on a journey over cold seas, barren landscapes, and exciting moments. With a warm heart and happiness in sight, with cold fingers and frozen toes, we will create memories for life together.

Our ship, Stålbas, holds groups up to 12 passengers. We will travel through the arctic at our own pace to photograph and document the unique experiences this great wilderness has to offer.

Stålbas in an ice classified ship that has traveled through the waters in Svalbard for more than 40 years. For big parts of the year, the ship works as a base for researches at sea around Svalbard and Jan Mayen. During the winter when Svalbard is dark and frozen, the ship spends long periods on the Barents Sea on mission. The ship and crew thrive in the arctic!

The crew onboard are true arctic seafarers. They sail the ship with care between destinations and with great respect for the animal life, nature and history.

Our talented and experienced guides will lead us to the best landings and take us to the most beautiful places that every photographer dreams of.

Barents Expeditions

About us

Having spent many years in the Arctic chasing our dreams, we have gathered lots of knowledge and experience.

The 5 of us started Barents Expeditions in 2018 with the ambition of taking small groups into the arctic world and doing so on nature’s terms with a boat equipped for the ice sea.

Our corporate philosophy is based on the love and care of the place we live in and we would like to share the Arctic greatness with our guests and visitors.

We are convinced that knowledge and interest are important elements to help preserve and help the arctic and the planet in the future.

We are the ones living the arctic dream and invite you to join us:
