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

Being in the ice and seeing the polar bears.

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

You don't need hiking boots because the boots provided on the ship were excellent! You do need a telephoto lens.

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

I think the trip supported conservation by expanding our knowledge and public awareness of the danger facing the arctic environment. We will be telling many people about our discoveries, and recommending the trip. Clearly Longyearbyen and it's people benefit from our visit economically, and our dialogue with local residents was unforgettable.

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

Excellent! I will be recommending it to everyone!
