My favourite travel memory - Lillemor Främberg
Lillemor Främberg works as travel producer and travel consultant at the PolarQuest office, and we asked her to share her favourite travel memory. Below can you read about an adventure which lies a bit closer to her heart than others - among fjords, mountains, orcas and whales in magical Tromsø!
"One of my favourite travel memories is participating in PolarQuest's Orcas and Northern Lights expedition on board M/S Stockholm in November 2016. The journey started and ended in Tromsø.
We had great fortune with the weather which was cold and clear. We got to experience fantastic sunrises and sunsets, and were able to see the northern lights for several nights too. I had never seen the northern lights before, so it was powerful to see how it danced across the night sky. The fact that the sea was also almost boiling by both orcas and humpback whales did not make the trip any worse! Imagine being able to sit completely still in an Zodiac at sunset with orcas just a few meters away and hear their blow when they come up to breathe. It was magical. You become very humble about the grandeur of nature, which becomes even more important to preserve, on a journey like this. "
