Many things contribute to having a wonderful trip such as
logistics, accommodations, food, weather, wildlife, companions, etc.
One very big factor is the guide and on my
Polar Bear trip
, we had
two exceptional ones.
Leah Magowan and Rinie Van Meurs have been doing this for years,
so they know the area, history, and wildlife inside & out. In addition,
Rinie is a world-class photographer, so this was a nice bonus for me.
They are both just super people and a pleasure to be around.
