What our clients say... "My first polar experience to Svalbard was really AMAZING!! The second and third are definitely on the way. This trip—from handling the booking up to the the very last day at the airport—was arranged perfectly and beyond my expectation. The encounter with polar bears in the sea ice was definitely the highlight of the trip! And sea kayaking offered a closeness with nature, as well as the tundra hike. You could feel the staff's enthusiasm and passion towards the polar land, and they did their best to make sure we had a memorable trip." ~ Eugene N. Details @ bit.ly/ArcticCollection
