Region: Arctic

Destinations: Svalbard

Ship: m/v Hondius

Our 10 day cruise experience included splendid views of nature (arctic sea, pack ice, drift ice, floating icebergs, huge mountain icebergs ending into sea, frequently changing weather within minutes, arctic cold wind, fjords), arctic flora living, flowering and dying within 3 months, fauna (different varieties of seals, walrus, whales, arctic fox, reindeer, polar bear and birds like guillemots, auks, ptermigans, gull, sandpiper) along with delicious breakfast, lunch and dinner. The additional touch of expedition (regular lectures on the flora, fauna, history of arctic expedition) along with guided tours of fjords after jodiac cruising added flavour to the splendour.
