Arctic Quest 22

What are the aims of the Arctic Quest 22?

The Arctic Quest 22 Expedition travelled to and explored Svalbard, a group of islands which lie halfway between Norway and the geographic North Pole. For more information about Svalbard, please visit Svalbard - Wikipedia and Svalbard Global Seed Vault.

This was a good location for wildlife, Arctic history and of course geography. The team departed in June and returned in July 2022.
