Svalbard Sharon Bader and Lee Lau
April 27 – May 5th 2023
From Longyearbyen we sailed to various locations whose names I won’t repeat since they’ll mean nothing. The Itinerary was posted on a board and if you scroll to the bottom you’ll see how the days were planned there. We were led by the local guide Chris who worked with Tom to find the best locations based on weather to ski.
I can’t say enough about the crew, Marco, Lotte, Albero, Sarah and Isabel. They made our trip comfortable and were very accomodating and efficient. I’ve heard food was better on previous trips so I won’t fault them for the uninspirational meals.
We divided into three groups each day, fast, chill and slow. It worked out well!
