Carl-Gustaf Elinder

Region: Arctic

Destinations: Svalbard

Ship: m/v Plancius

Yesterday I left the ship Plancius together with my two adult boys in Longyearbyen after having taken part in exposition organised by you. The expedition leader was Christian Engelke. I've have travelled quite a lot in the world being a overall nature interested person, in particular birdwatching, for more than 45 years and also at one occasion - on a research expedition - visited the Antarctic, This is just to inform you that we are very pleased indeed with this trip. What we saw and experienced was fantastic. The boat, facilities on board, food and lodging was excellent. All arrangements for landings were handled with great efficiency, environmental concern and safety. What in particular impressed me, and my trip companions, was Christian and his whole teams concern, eagerness and engagement to really show, present, discuss and share with us their enthusiasm for this wilderness. We are very pleased for taking part in this trip! Carl-Gustaf, Tobias and Joel Elinder, Stockholm, Sweden
