Iceland & Svalbard – Expedition North

Luxury Expedition Ship Silver Explorer

View These Trips

Seeing the beauty of the Arctic region for the first time. It was a sight beyond my imagination and expectations. Loved the walruses and the fact we could see them up close.

The service was great. We enjoyed the ship. It was not too big but sufficiently large that neither my husband or I felt confined. We also enjoyed the seating arrangements at meal times that enable us to interact with a variety of different people over the course of the trip.

Keep up the good work. Sea Spirit is a very comfortable ship for a polar expedition. We had close encounters with the belugas and walruses. I enjoyed zodiac cruising in pristine landscapes with countless icebergs, and meeting like-minded people on the expedition.

The most memorable experience was being around people who thrive in the Arctic/Antarctic environment - polar explorers, survival instructors, authors, and Arctic adventurists. The second most memorable moment was kayaking among the belugas, walrus and ice. I try never to have expectations, but to be in the moment, which, of course, was divine. The food was very good and fresh. The level of service could not be improved.

Exceeded my expectations. I've been to the Arctic twice before: Svalbard and East Greenland. I saw much more wildlife this time and had cultural opportunities never before offered to such an extent. I especially will remember throat singing by an Inuit woman in Arctic Bay. The level of service from expedition leaders and the historian were top notch. Especially loved hanging out with Dr. Bob at Thule beach sites.

Iceland Circumnavigation – Fire and Ice

Expedition Ship Ocean Nova

ExpeditionTrips' assistance was excellent. They answered my questions promptly and accurately and when they didn't have the answer at their fingertips, they sought it out and provided it quickly. The zodiac rides were exhilarating and the guides worked hard to make it an adventure. The staff and guides were excellent.

Iceland & Greenland – Disko Bay and the Southern Fjords

Scenic Exploration Fram

View These Trips

We had a good trip! Greenland was where we wanted to go and we're glad we went. Although the mainland is 80% ice covered, the coast is not—small towns and settlements were interesting. We would probably go on the ship again, if it was traveling to a location in which we were interested as it was comfortable and pleasant. Staff were well trained, accommodating, and nice.

The team at ExpeditionTrips was very helpful every step of the way. Many parts of our Icelandic tour on the Fram were outstanding including the ship, the crew and the excursions. This tour included birds, land animals and geology in a very interesting country based on an outstanding vessel. The staff were very competent and friendly. The expedition guides included an ornithologist and a geologist. All of the expedition guides were knowledgeable, friendly and outstanding.

Expedition Trips has booked many of my most memorable journeys, including the Arctic and Antarctic. I know I will benefit from their expertise and good care whenever I book with ET. Although our itinerary changed completely due to ice conditions, the staff made the best of it. We ended up with wonderful wildlife sightings and visited communities that hadn't expected us until hours before. They were wonderfully hospitable and happy to have us visit.

The staff was really good, simply speaking we were on holidays and the the staff and crew did perfectly. Not an inch of error. The cordial and friendly atmosphere on board the Sea Adventurer was superb. Everyone, from the hotel kitchen, reception, bar and waiter to the expedition crew, was caring and superb. Safety was paramount.

We enjoyed it very much. We found a new and different world. Most memorable: meeting local people and seeing how they live and the glacier at Illulisat. The staff was most kind and helpful.

Embarking L'Austral makes you feel special and when you get onboard the experience continues with great food in the restaurants and great service from the staff. Anyone looking for a smaller ship experience with the added bonus of Zodiac excursions would be delighted with what L'Austral has to offer. And she sails like a dream!

L'Austral was splendid and we enjoyed it tremendously. The staff couldn't have been nicer and were so accommodating. We took advantage of the casual dining experience whenever we could even though the dining room was beautiful. We loved its open air dining. A highlight for us was being invited to the bridge!

We have striven, we have sought and we have found. Of course our little expedition is not in the same realm as those of the great polar explorers of the past but it is a little taste. Perhaps we can retain some of the beauty, serenity and timelessness of the far northern world we have travelled in. Better still that we can take it back to our everyday lives.

Working with ExpeditionTrips was a very positive experience for us. We are avid travelers; but cruise travel of any sort, much less this sort of adventure cruise, was new to us and we definitely felt the need for guidance early in the process. Our program manager was fantastic; I talked to her many times and she was always most helpful.
