Region: Arctic

Destinations: Svalbard

Ship: m/v Hondius

Our ten day trip around Svalbard with the Hondius was excellent. There was absolutely nothing to complain about, it was perfect. The boat was beautiful, we had a lovely cabin and the food was delicious. The guids were absolutely great, they had so much knowledge and they were very friendly. This trip has defenitely showed us the beauty of Svalbard and her stunning nature. The activities were fantastic and they had nice difficulty levels to make it possible for everybody to have a lovely trip. We have seen so many animals (six polar bears, one swimming around the ship twice, walruses, wales, reindeer, etc) due to an amazing team of expierenced staff. I can truly invent nothing negative about the whole experience, and I would recommend it to everybody. It was an experience to never forget.
