Clients’ comments

“I came home deeply satisfied with this trip - despite delays due to weather and cracks in the ice runways. We snowmobiled, dog sledged, visited fascinating Arctic museums and explored caves under glaciers. I fell in love with Svalbard. Again I am reminded that it’s the wonderful characters you meet that make these adventures so memorable. ”

Clewin Hughes, North Pole express – Barneo Ice Camp

I found the ‘adventure’ both rewarding and educational and also met some interesting people, especially among the English-speaking Chinese and Russian passengers.  Once again thank you for putting the trip together for me and therefore making it a resounding success.

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

Barbara Forrai and Margaret Dykes, Franz Josef Land


“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
