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. Lees review

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:) Lees review

FAQ

Het weer rond Jan Mayen is vaak niet zo goed, er wordt wel gezegd dat het weer 362 dagen in het jaar slecht is. Er kan zware regen zijn maar ook harde wind en dichte mist. Toch komt ook redelijk vaak de zon wel door en kan het helder worden. Begin juni, wanneer we Jan Mayen bezoeken, is de gemiddelde temperatuur tussen de 2 en 3 graden Celsius.

Hoewel het niet altijd koud is op Jan Mayen, is water en winddichte kleding essentieel. Een waterdichte jas en broek zijn noodzakelijk tijdens een landing met de Zodiac op de ruige kust van het eiland. Warme onderkleding zoals thermisch ondergoed, fleecevesten, donsjas, handschoenen en een muts zijn belangrijk. Rubberlaarzen, ook essentieel tijdens de landingen, worden aan boord van de Plancius, Ortelius en Hondius uitgedeeld.
