Region: Arctic

Destinations: Svalbard

Ship: m/v Plancius

Highlights: Walrus

it was a overwhelming travel in the rough beauty of the north. The landscape was as endless like the silence. The clouds on the heaven and the rare sunshine make breathtaking pictures. For me it was astonishing to see so few animals. And the big polarbear looks so tiny in the huge landscape. Our crew was so experienced, charming and friendly. The meals were excellent.
