Reviews for Arctic wildlife holiday, Polar bear explorer


review 22 Aug 2018

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

22 Polar bears! And sadly this was a year when the sea ice melted early so I was afraid we wouldn't see any. Also foxes, walruses and reindeer, all seemingly unconcerned with humans so we were quite close. Spectacular scenery - glaciers, icebergs, tundra - lovely ship with a great crew and food better than I expected. Also, most importantly, the guides couldn't have been better.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

Be prepared for ever changing weather conditions.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Svalbard is serious about preserving the area as a true wilderness and the operator seemed committed to the same

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?
