“When I told people about the expedition I was going to take, everyone said it’s a ‘once-in-a-lifetime’ adventure. I sincerely hope it wont be! We had a wonderful time. Experiencing nature at its most glorious and majestic. This truly was an adventure to remember. True glaciers, the animals and the shores we visited were fascinating - and the Quark team was one of a kind! Thanks a lot!”
