Verbal Adventures

I recently started working with Chris Marquardt on his podcast Curiously Polar. I met him, when he joined on our cruises on m/v Togo for two photography workshops. On our trip along the Lofoten islands, we took some time to talk about sea ice. The setting could not have been nicer as the sun is shining while we were strolling through the fishing village Henningsvær. After some rough days with quite a swell for a small vessel like Togo, it felt good to spend the day on land with some sunshine.

With m/v Hondius into Scoresbysund

Oceanwide Expeditions just confirmed a new departure for me onboard the brand new vessel m/v Hondius from Iceland into Scoresbysund in East Greenland. The East Greenland – Scoresby Sund cruise crosses the Arctic Circle into the home waters of multiple species of whale.

New date on s/v Noorderlicht

I just added a new cruise departure to my calendar for Oceanwide Expeditions on the tallship s/v Noorderlicht for a cruise around Senja. The North Norway cruise follows the path of more than one kind of whale as it travels amongst the fjords of Troms. The long Norway nights offer travellers on this expedition an excellent chance to take in the beauty and wonder of the Northern Lights.

So far, four departures from Longyearbyen have been confirmed, two are looking for polar bears and pack ice in the north of Svalbard, while the other two departures are trying to circumnavigate Svalbard.
