Svalbard Trip 2017

I’ve just spent 2 fantastic weeks in Artic Svalbard. 8 days on ship M/S Freya with our guides from Artic Adventures. I can’t say enough good things about our guides Jens and Audun, expect that they are the best guides you can ask for. I also have to send a special thank you to the crew on M/S Freya who did an amazing job.

 

Our trip took us on a south bound direction from Longyearbyen towards Sørkapp, Edgeøya, Nordaustlandet, Sjuøyane and then back on the west side to Longyearbyen. Some of the highlight on the trip where polar bears, blue whale, walrus, artic fox and the fantastic landscape.
