One of the best trips we ever did: We had some of the best experience with Secret Atlas on our micro expedition in Svalbard, in August 2023 onboard Kinfish. The crew was very professional and the whole experience was really smooth from start to finish. Swimming near the North Pole was easily one of the best experiences of my life. We were very lucky to see an abundance of unique wildlife every single day. Sailing on a small boat like ours (Kinfish), with only 12 guests onboard, allowed us to navigate and explore places that other (bigger) ships simply couldn't. Would 100% recommend this to anyone looking for a once in a lifetime adventure while exploring the Arctic.

We had a wonderful adventure! The crew, guides Virg and Jonathan, and guests bonded quickly; it was a warm, collegial, friendly group. From start to finish, the adventure was seamless and proceeded with easy (at least that's how it appeared to the guests). It was as though the crew and guides worked together for years, but as we know, it was their first meeting. The crew and guides’ collaboration, professionalism, and collegiality was impressive. They had many conversations throughout the days and nights to, for example, plot and plan the most interesting, safe, exciting, and educational zodiac excursion or where best to venture to increase our chances of spotting a polar bear and find the best location for a dip in the Arctic. It was clear the Robin, Wilhelm, and the crew and Virg and Jonahtn wanted us, the customers, to have a wonderful experience. A few highlights: . Traveling north of 80degrees latitude - exciting for all the passengers . Virg and Jonathan’s presentations about ice, birds, animals, etc. enhanced our understanding and appreciation of the subject . Post-breakfast and post-lunch plans/updates for the days travels and excursion kept us informed, prepared, and excited for the day’s activities. . Daily updates on the map and whiteboard of where we went and what we saw helped to log our adventure. . Swimming in the Arctic . Special treats at the end of excursions . Karin, the chef, worked hard to accommodate dietary needs and prepared delicious meals. . Linn, the chief host (for lack of a better term) prepared a Sweden National Day event, Special wine for each dinner, special cocktails, and the last night threw a great party with singing and dancing lead by a few members of the crew . Captain Robin led a tight ship with an open-door bridge policy which became the hub of activity. The young, friendly, helpful, warm, and all-around nice crew (Viggo, Esther, Wilhelm, Freja, Harold, Calle, Karin, and Linn) all contributed positively to our adventure. . Tour of the engine room with Harold and flipping switches to start the Kinfish engine. . Boots and once-piece suits were warm, unexpected, and appreciated. . The food and drink were all excellent . The cabin, bedding, general accommodations were comfortable, and we slept well . On shore, Barbara, and Joanna, were prompt, informative, and helpful.
