This expedition exceeded all our expectations. We went to experience the Arctic and that's what we did. The pack ice, views, wildlife ...all wonderful. Fair Isle was uncharacteristically hot in the British heat wave - the puffins and skuas on form. Jan Mayen was experienced as it should be - wet and wild. The pack ice was just stunning - so inspirational for art work and Svalbard - wow - field sketching at 2am in the morning - it just had to be done! The landings were all exciting and to see polar bears, whales, walruses - brilliant. The blue fulmars accompanied us in the north and are now a favourite - little albatrosses of the north. The ship, staff, lectures - all splendid and the food was wonderful! Thank you for the most amazing experience - we'll be back!

Our trip from Aberdeen to Svalbard via Fair Isle, Jan Mayen and the Greenland drift ice was spectacular. Everyday contained a memorable event, the wildlife watching was constantly inspiring and it was hard to find time to sleep. On board the ship, staff, food, cabin were all perfect. We will be back. Fantastic. Bewertung lesen

This expedition exceeded all my expectations. I loved the trip from start to finish. The little surprises along the way made it exciting while the varied programme kept my interest. I have already been sharing the Web links with friends as they are all asking following my Facebook update on our trip. Thank to all the team on the Honduis. You made our holiday!

Amazing trip with an amazing crew! We had wonderful wildlife sightings during our trip. Also, the daily lectures of the guides were very nice and informative (both for. laymens and more experienced passengers). All the other services on the boat were excellent and everyone of the crew was very nice and friendly. The only tip I could think of is grouping the passengers into groups during the hike on svalbard based on preferred hike length. I ended up doing a short hike which was still very nice, but I would rather have hiked with a different group to get some steps in:) Bewertung lesen

FAQ

The weather around Jan Mayen is often not so good: it is said the weather is foul for 362 days of the year. There may be heavy rain, wind and fog but then, soon after, the sun may break through and the air becomes clear. In June, when our ships visit Jan Mayen, the average temperature is around 2º to 3ºC (36º to 37ºF).

Although it is not always cold, warm and waterproof clothing is needed on Jan Mayen. Waterproof trousers and jacket against wind, rain and salt spray coming into the zodiac. Furthermore fleece jackets, gloves and a warm hat. Rubber-boots for the landings are provided on board our vessels Plancius, Ortelius and Hondius.
