Region: Arctic

Destinations: Svalbard

We had a great trip with an excellent guide & crew. We found all of the species on my list, though the Blue Whale was a long way off. The Nooderlicht was good fun, the photos of it in drift ice and the mid-night sun are stunners. The fauna & flora were all varied & diverse, I did not expect to see such a range of flora on the tundra. My highlights were, Ice Bear & cubs, Walrus, Arctic Fox, Cetacean's, Bonxie flying in formation, the diversity of the birds, flora, glacier's, drift ice, stunning geology, & good food. We completed a lot of walks & a few hill climbs. I will be back.
