Prachtige reis ! Onze verwachtingen werden overtroffen ! De expeditie-crew heeft zich echt professioneel ingezet om de ganse poolbevolking voor onze ogen en camera's te brengen. Daarenboven zorgden ijsberen voor nodige medewerking. Schip en bemanning waren even professioneel en bijzonder vriendelijk. We hadden misschien wat meer open weer en zon gewenst, maar de lage mist op de bergen gaf dan weer een extra dramatisch effect op dit pure landschap. Ik had misschien graag met de zodiac wat dichter bij één van de gletsjers willen komen. Maar ik vergeet nooit de "vijf minuten" totale rust en stilte op de lange fjordwandeling op initiatief van Arjen. Onvergetelijk !!
