Hildegunde Royle

Region: Arctic

Destinations: Svalbard

Ship: m/v Plancius

Polar bear special - and it was - a group of 3 adults feeding on sea ice and a mother and 2 cubs frolicking on an island. It was glorious. The scenery, the walruses, birds, flora, the majestic scenes of sea ice and glaciers. Unforgettable. many excursions in the zodiacs brought all up close. The guides were fantastic and the daily briefings on the wildlife were very informative. Learned lots. The hotel staff and crew super. Food well prepared with a good choice. A perfect adventure.
