Destinations: Svalbard

Ship: m/v Plancius

Everything about this adventure was incredible. The expedition crew were highly professional, knowledgeable and experienced, outings were very well organised and supervised. Safety was a priority but didn’t impede our experience. Wildlife viewing was above expectations and at close range. It was a huge thrill to watch a polar bear for some considerable time and to see large numbers of walrus in and out of the water. And to experience the pack ice and pristine scenery of Svalbard was a great privilege. On board the food was always ample and delicious, and service from the multinational ship’s crew was very friendly and efficient. Plancius is a very comfortable ship with lots of viewing space both inside and on the decks and zodiac outings run very smoothly. Overall this was a trip that will live long in our memories and we would definitely recommend it to anyone wanting to visit Svalbard.
