Svalbard Photo Tour

The focus of our Spitsbergen/Svalbard photo expeditions is on the Arctic magic of light, the impressive landscapes of the Arctic and the wildlife. The light conditions on Svalbard are simply magical at any time of the year. The landscapes and the ice fjords will cast a spell over you. With a little luck we will also be able to capture great wildlife images of polar bears, walruses, seals, arctic foxes, reindeer and birds.

For all our Arctic photo expeditions we charter a small ship exclusively for our group. The expeditions are fully dedicated to photography and there will be no other tourists on board. You will have enough space – also for extensive photo equipment.

Join us! Explore and photograph the magical Arctic. This will be the trip of a lifetime.

What our clients say


I am still completely blown away that I had a chance to experience this breath-taking, wild beauty of nature. And watching the King of the Arctic in his natural environment is the crowning glory. This trip was rounded off by perfect organisation and execution, first class food, super nice crew and really great tips from the experienced nature photographer Daisy Gilardini and Thomas from Amazing Views, who delivered a perfect all-round carefree package for me. Sorry Thomas, if I have to repeat myself again and again: THANK YOU VERY MUCH to you and Jennifer for making such trips possible!!! I would like to be part of this journey once again.

Spitsbergen, April 2019


I had a dream, and it came true! Svalbard with Jenny and Daisy can hardly be 'topped'. The organisation- incl. consideration of my 'special handicaps' was just great. In addition, the team on board was extremely customer oriented. Thus we experienced indescribable photo events from day to day.

Philip & Barbara

The trip to Spitsbergen with its unspoilt landscape, abundance of animals and the fascinating play of lights was a matter of the heart. We were able to experience a lot on this perfectly organized trip. The accommodation on the ship was perfect and the excursion mode fully met our taste. Among the many photos there are a few great pictures, which are a joy thanks to Jenny and Daisy. Many thanks for the great days Philipp & Barbara.

Svalbard, June / July 2018


Svalbard, Arctic, polar bears, glaciers, walruses, birds, and pure nature. This trip is unforgettable, but not only because of the nature, the animal and bird life and the silence and tranquillity of this area, but also because of the amazing view and One Ocean. Everything just fits: the ship, the crew, the staff of One Ocean, who left no question unanswered, were always helpful, cheerful and obliging. Especially THANKS to Jenny Brühlmann and Daisy Gilardini. Not only do they have a profound knowledge of photography and the area, they are also very good at communicating it, and they managed to turn me from a non-photographer to a proud owner of a camera and have total fun taking pictures. I have learned to appreciate both of them very much, not only as photographers and tour guides, but also as people.

Small ships, exclusively for our groups

For our Spitsbergen photo expeditions we charter small ships exclusively for our groups. This means that there are no other passengers on board. The expedition crew as well as the photographers are professionals with several years of experience in the Arctic. The route is chosen to offer our guests the best wildlife sightings and impressive landscapes. We have two Zodiacs on board for excursions. This gives us the opportunity to come even closer to the photo motifs. The cabins of our two ships were newly built and furnished in 2020/2021. On our expeditions, you can look forward to an unforgettable and amazing photo experience in the Arctic.     

Svalbard Seasons Winter / Spring (April)

Svalbard shows itself in its classic winter wonderland dress. Snow-covered mountains and landscapes and lots of pack ice in the fjords and bays. Depending on the ice situation, the route usually leads along the west coast, which is now easily accessible.
At this time of the year, the photo motives offer themselves in a beautiful and pristine winter dress. White landscapes, much more ice and animals in the middle of an ice landscape. In March / April, depending on the weather conditions, you also have a very good chance of fantastic light moods during sunrise and sunset when the low sun will cover the landscape in warm light.

Summer (June / July)

After winter has gone, many places in Svalbard are now easily accessible by boat, especially the northeast - for example the seven islands (Sjuoyane), one of the best locations for polar bears. On land, the snow is disappearing more and more and shore excursions can be made with the Zodiacs.
The midnight sun shines around the clock in its soft arctic light. The tundra blossoms and there are small flowers everywhere. And it is the breeding season for many bird colonies (which means a feast for the arctic foxes).

Autumn (September)

Many places in Svalbard are now easily accessible, especially the northeast - for example the seven islands (Sjuoyane), one of the best locations for polar bears.
At this time of the year, the landscape wears its beautiful autumn dress. White snow-covered mountain peaks and the tundra in bright autumn colours. In September, depending on the weather conditions, there is also a good chance for fantastic light moods when the low sun will cover the landscape in warm light.
