Because the crew members truly love what they do AND because they wanted us to see wildlife, they found perfect spots to take us. We saw polar bears – and cubs – as well as seals, walruses, reindeer, puffins and many other types of Arctic birds.
First of all, the crew on our expedition were all experts in their fields (marine biology, birds, polar bears, geology, etc.), so they were able to explain everything that we saw plus give talks in between wildlife outings. We learned so much.
The expedition took us through incredible scenery. We had lovely weather as well. Cold, but sunny. Speaking of cold, everyone was given a parka to wear. These were warm and waterproof!
