Oceanwide Expeditions pioneered the way to Spitsbergen, being the first company to organize commercial trips to the archipelago. By inventing Basecamp in Antarctica, we introduced activity-filled cruises to the White continent. We were the first offering the Atlantic Odyssey cruise to the remotest islands, crossing the migratory paths of a variety of birds and whales, as they make their annual expeditions north for the breeding season. Travel with Oceanwide Expeditions, let’s be the first together.
