Clients’ comments

“A brilliant holiday! Franz Josef Land must be the ultimate Arctic experience.”

Barbara Forrai and Margaret Dykes, Franz Josef Land, August 2012

 

“As Marion promised, I attach a copy of the log from our recent trip to Franz Josef Land. The photos in the log illustrate the quality of the polar bear encounters! Dense sea ice is definitely the place to see bears at close range, and we couldn’t have got into the middle of it without an icebreaker. In one twenty-four hour period we had fourteen bear encounters. Often with two in view at the same time. (That 14 count involved some repeat visits by the same bear, who seemed fascinated by the ship).”

Grant Hutchison and Marion McMurdo, Franz Josef Land, July 2011
