As we stand capturing the ice-filled fjords, embraced by impressive snow kissed mountains, we spot them. On a lone iceberg stands a stranded female polar bear with her two young cubs, prodding her belly with their snouts. We have this incredible experience to ourselves and none of us dare move in case we disturb the moment.
These experiences kept on coming, seeing these incredible creatures framed by mighty mountains hunting bearded seals on pack ice, or picking their way up steep cliffs to feed on seabird chicks. We join the captain on the bridge to spot whales and head out on small ribs daily to walk along fossil-strewn beaches, as bird-life circles overhead. Sharing these experiences with ten other wildlife crazy individuals, beside themselves with excitement at seeing whales, birds and seals in their natural habitat, made the whole trip so much more remarkable. They are here for an adventure they will never forget.
