I joined The catch of the day tour.
It started once on board with a glass of champagne, We headed towards the glacier and on the way stopped to see so many different birds and even an arctic fox. When we arrived at the glacier we hung around for half an hour before we were lucky enough to see a polar bear, it was a fantastic sight, something I hoped I'd see but didn't think I would. After that we ate some delicious soup while looking at such beautiful surroundings. Then later treated to chocolate cake and coffee.
Our guide for the day was Ane, who was so enthusiastic,full of information and funny stories, with a very competent Ola at the wheel. I really recommended this trip if you get the chance, it was the highlight of my stay in Svalbard

It was great! Our guides Ulla and Alan (for sure incorrectly spelt) were excellent. They were attentive and provided good, interesting information. The weather was ideal and we saw ring seals, a polar bear, a Minke whale and walruses...much more than expected.Great job guys!!!

We had two tours with better moments and both were well organised with professional and charming guides and boat drivers who managed to bring us so close to whales. It was a beautiful sunny day on the walrus safari and we managed to get quite close to them. The boat is comfortable, even sitting on the benches at the rear and the food is good (we asked for vegeterian). Thank you Aula,Yishmael and Larisa.

Went on tour ,to the coast ,to view walrus..however, enroute we spotted a blue whale and the captain expertly and consciously positioned us to have a close encounter with one of these gracious creatures..we circled with it for about an hour before conditions changed whilst enroute to the walrus colony. We then diverted to a nearby glacier ,boarded the zodiac ,to disembark on a beach for an informative wander and photo session.. so even though nature changed our course, we still had an awesome experience with awesome folk and awesome crew.. I will be back!!
