Svalbard-based luxury ski company takes adventurers to the Arctic — in uncompromising style.
Backcountry skiers seeking new terrain can now find new adventures in uncharted territory without sacrificing the creature comforts of full-service luxury. The Empire, a Norwegian company founded by native expeditioners with a knack for hospitality, offers catered expeditions that marry the adrenaline of extreme skiing with the service of a luxury vacation.
The Svalbard-based company takes small groups deep into the Arctic archipelago for skiing, snowboarding and exploring — from ‘inhabiting’ abandoned Russian towns to polar bear spotting. All trips come complete with gourmet meals and expert guides. The newly introduced Radio Basecamp expedition even includes a sauna. See full expedition details.
