- Travelled on the M/S Expedition in early July, and went up to the North of Spitsbergen. It was stunningly beautiful - glaciers, mountains, sea-ice - simply wonderful. We were lucky enough to see a polar bear and her cub. Other highlights for me were the arctic fox, a large school of beluga whales and all the walruses! The boat was comfortable and the crew and staff couldn't do enough for you they were so friendly and welcoming.Sarah was the expedition leader but she had a team of expedition staff who were all fantastic. They transported us safely on the zodiacs while passing on their extensive knowledge of the Arctic, as well as giving us talks on varied topics such as wildlife, history, geology, photography, and also performing the conga. There was also an excellent musician on board as well as the boat-band made up of various crew members.
