Itinerary

Day 1 – Embarkation Day, Longyearbyen, Spitsbergen
Your adventure begins when you board your ship in Longyearbyen, the island’s largest settlement. Enjoy your first view of Spitsbergen’s rugged, glacier-topped mountains, rising majestically from icy Arctic waters.
Day 2 to 3 – Exploring Spitsbergen
Largest of the Norwegian-ruled Svalbard islands, Spitsbergen is famed for its abundant wildlife and austere beauty. Here you’ll visit spectacular glacier fronts, steep-walled fjords and the tiny international research community of Ny Alesund. Wildlife-viewing opportunities include walrus, polar bear and the unique Spitsbergen reindeer. Birders will thrill to see Arctic Terns, skuas, Long-tailed Ducks, kittiwakes and Glaucous Gulls. As an added bonus, when conditions are right, you could sail within 10° of the North Pole!
Day 4 to 5 – Greenland Sea
While sailing the historic Greenland Sea, you’ll learn about the wildlife and history of Spitsbergen, your next stop. On deck you’ll learn to identify seabirds on the wing. Share photos, sip an icy cocktail in the bar – watch a movie – there are many things to do at sea.
Day 6 to 10 – Scoresbysund, Eastern Greenland
During your tour of Greenland’s remote eastern coast, you’ll enjoy sea-level Zodiac cruises and shore visits to several locations. Sail the ice edge searching for walrus and polar bear. Visit the remains of ancient Thule settlements, and keep an eye out for grazing musk oxen, because 40% of the world’s population of this fascinating mammal lives on the east coast of Greenland. Finally, sail through spectacular Scoresbysund, birthplace of many icebergs, and – some say – the most beautiful fjord system in the world.
Day 11 to 12 – At Sea in the Denmark Strait
Sail through the Denmark Strait en route to Greenland’s mysterious eastern shore. Your onboard Expedition Team keeps you informed and entertained with
presentations about area wildlife- especially the seabirds you’ll see soaring above your ship.
Day 13 – Westman Islands (Vestmannaeyjar)
Named long ago for Irishmen (Westmen) enslaved by the medieval Norse-Gaels, this small archipelago is one of Iceland’s gems. Here you’ll learn of the area’s fascinating history and famed volcanic geology while touring the town of Heimaey. There’s also a good chance you’ll spot large colonies of puffins on one of the outlying islands.
Day 14 – Disembarkation Day, Reykjavik, Iceland
We’ll say our farewell’s with a heavy heart as our adventure ends in Reykjavik, the world’s northernmost capital city.
