Region: Arctic

Destinations: Svalbard

Ship: m/v Hondius

Highlights: Polar Bear

We hardly had left the harbour of Longyearbyen as we met a group of 100 Belugas in the fjord, what a start of our journey! And we had more luck: a polar fox in Ny Alesund, reindeer, 2 groups of walrus lazy on their beach, bearded seals and black guillemots all over the place. And if you think that this was all: in one day we saw 5 different polarbears! This was also the first time the Hondius could go all around Spitsbergen. So greatfull to Hondius and the crew!
