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.

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.

Svalbard & Norway

Luxury Expedition Ship Silver Explorer

View These Trips

What really inspired us to take this trip was our first two trips on the Silver Explorer -- this is our third.  Although we generally prefer land-based travel, this ship goes places you just can't see any other way, and the staff is incredible.  The highlight of the trip was, as expected, close viewing of polar bears, including an incredible, close-range view of two bears, eating on an ice floe.

The expedition team is wonderful, both very adept at getting the passengers safely and efficiently to the wildlife and terrain, and very knowledgeable about all of the relevant areas -- wildlife, geology, glaciology, history.  And back on board, the restaurant and hotel staff provide luxury and personal attention.  It's a great combination.

Working with ExpeditionTrips was a very positive experience for us.
