Destinations: Svalbard

Ship: m/v Plancius

We had an excellent trip on Plancius! Due to unexpected amounts of ice for the season in the north of Svalbard we could not do the routing that was originally foreseen for the Polar Bear Special. However, the expedition team and captain went out of their way to come up with alternative solutions and - clearly based on their extensive experience in the area - changed the plan frequently in order for us to see polar bears in other areas and also otherwise to make the absolute most of our trip. Plus, the entire crew was very warm and welcoming, we felt absolutely comfortable on board and were sad to leave the ship. We will be back!
