Six Polar Bears feeding on a female Narwhal carcass

Our fifth trip to these amazing Arctic Islands. This was a very special trip: a private charter aboard the M/S Malmo for twenty nights. This gave us the maximum time possible in the pack ice as we searched for Polar Bears. We had the most amazing encounters. We first came upon a female Narwhal carcass and six bears feasting on it. Narwhal are rare around Svalbard so we were most surprised and delighted to witness this event.
