TOUR REVIEWS

Ron & Helen Jones

Svalbard Explorer & Wildlife Adventure

We have always considered Sue’s trip to Madagascar as the most exotic and adventurous we have ever done. Our trip to Svalbard equaled that fantastic holiday.
Sue and Henrik complemented each other as knowledgeable guides and worked tirelessly to maximize opportunities to spot wildlife. The Sjøveien crew were all friendly and helpful, the chef coming up with a constant string of surprises at every meal. The small ship was surprisingly comfortable and well appointed. It was able to get us closer to the action than the larger ships. Of course we were there for the wildlife and scenery. Both were absolutely fantastic with up close encounters the norm. The beauty of so many birds and animals that have no fear of us allowed for many wonderful encounters.

Agnete Svane & Lars Larsen

Svalbard Explorer & Wildlife Adventure

Our most amazing and spectacular travel experience ever! It’s been an unconditional pleasure participating in the Svalbard adventure. It was not a single or a few specific events that made the trip; not the climbing polar bear right in front of us; not the majestic glaciers, rumbling and calving, in front of which we spent hours in the zodiacs – freezing, yet not wanting to leave; not the spectacular whale sightings; it was not waking up in the morning to another breathtakingly beautiful view of the extraordinary landscape; not in particular sharing Sue’s delight in spotting the lovely, tiny, amazing flowers of these rough islands; it was not even the four polar bears feeding on a whale carcass that we met on day 1. It was the sum of it all, facilitated by our inspiring and competent guides, Sue and Henrik, who took care of the guest and everything else in their kind and encouraging manner.
We can highly recommend this trip to any nature and wildlife lover – and to anyone who’d appreciate an experientially and mentally enriching excursion.
