Ketil is a great guide, he's also very friendly and has a great boat with a warm cabin. He drove us very safely around the lagoons and also showed us a great number of Bears. He is a great team player and a person with great knowledge and experience. He's also run the Iditarod dog race many times. We saw as many as 20+ Bears during our day trip with him. He picked us up straight from the runway in his boat, in style...we were photographing Polar Bears within 4 minutes after landing in Kaktovik. My wife and I had a great time with him and will go again with him next year to get more time with the Bears. Ketil was nice enough to show us around the village as well and made sure we were comfortable throughout the trip. He has a lot of safety equipment in his cabin cruiser including many life vests, ladder etc. We felt very safe with him and will gladly recommend him for anyone who has to see Polar Bears in the wild.
I will add a few pictures from our trip on this page soon..
Thanks, Ketil !
