Highlights: Hiking, Polar Bear, Walrus

We already heard many stories about luxury cruises along the Norwegian fjords, in the Mediterranean, the Caribbean ... This way of traveling is not what we are looking for! But, Arjan from Thika Travel has convinced us that this is a completely different cruise, an expedition cruise. And he was right, we had all the necessary comfort on board, without superfluous luxury. Moreover, the crew (captain ...), the staff (restaurant, bar, cabin ...) and the expedition team (with Beau Pruneau as expedition leader) were very good from the first to the last. For us it was a unique, instructive experience.
