Fjords and Glaciers of Spitsbergen   0 , ACT, Australia, Jun 2023
Very enjoyable trip. We were able to see Polar Bears, Walrus, whales , seals and lots of birds. Captains and crews are all fantastic and change the course for the best landing. Our reservations with Global Journeys was great with Georgie.
