Confirmed traveller

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.

The attention to safety and to the flora and fauna. The wildlife encounters were well lead and the animals and birds were not harassed, nor disturbed in their environment.

Definitely seeing the polar bears

Be flexible, there is no itinerary as such, just go with the flow and see what turns up. So much depends on the weather. You can't organise the weather or the wildlife

Very well organised, dedicated & knowledgeable tour leaders. Would recommend the trip and would go again with Explore.

Good staff - and when it really matters, all the stops are pulled out and you know you are in reliable hands. I should know - I actually missed my flight, but a very swift response from the team on the on-call emergency number averted what would have been a disaster!

I have been travelling with you for about 15 years - it's worth going with a company you can trust - also you have some really imaginative trips to offer
