Excerpts from this informative guide include:
"People usually go to Svalbard hoping to see polar bears and walruses, but it can be the boisterous cliffs filled with jostling seabirds that takes their breath away." – Dr Roger Kirkwood, Expedition Leader and Naturalist.
“You will inevitably have an encounter with curious seals, penguins or be lucky enough to swim with a whale. If this is not enough to entice you to the great white continent, the magical textures and shapes of underwater icebergs will definitely leave you speechless!” – Edwin Sargeant, Diving Guide
“There are no words to describe the feeling of reaching the top of a snowy slope and looking down into a bay filled with icebergs and penguin rookeries! To reach somewhere that would have been unattainable is a great feeling!” - Tarn Pilkington, Climbing Guide
“March is ‘late-season’ for voyages to Antarctica: night times grow out of the endless summer days; the air freshens; dustings of snow can cover the land, and the sea surface can freeze with a thin crust of ice. Most other ships have left the scene, so all landing sites are available. It’s fantastic – you have the real Antarctica, and you have it all to yourself.” – Dr Roger Kirkwood, Expedition Leader & Naturalist
