Jann did this trip in August 2015 and it was incredible! Very interesting historically; a mix of beautiful scenery as well as some very stark areas; plus we were very lucky as we had wonderful polar bear sightings and also saw the Northern Lights most nights in our last week. Please let us know if you’d like to discuss this trip in more detail.
Book with confidence before 10 December 2021 and you may change or cancel your journey up to 15 days prior to departure for a COVID-19-related reason.
