I fell in love with The Arctic the first time I arrived on Spitsbergen, the largest island in the Svalbard archipelago. There is something about the cold and remote places that I find incredibly peaceful and it will always be one of my favourite places to visit! The sheer abundance of life in a region that seems so desolate and inhospitable is incredible to see. The highlight is of course seeing the Polar Bears, but it is such a beautiful and unique habitat with so many different species and such incredible light throughout the summer months, when the sun never dips below the horizon. I hope you enjoy the photos, some of which are available to order as prints or licence as stock images.
