Spitsbergen Circumnavigation: Big Island, Big Adventure

Spitsbergen is the largest island of the Svalbard archipelago, which we will attempt to circumnavigate on this voyage. Lying entirely within the Arctic Circle, it is rugged, wild, unspoiled—utterly unforgettable. When it comes to viewing Arctic wildlife Spitsbergen is known as one of the most prolific destinations. Offering one of the world’s best opportunities to view polar bears, you’ll be able to see the world’s largest carnivores in their natural habitat. Walrus populations love Spitsbergen as well, feeding in the food-rich icy waters around the island. Whales and seabirds will entertain you during the sailing portions of the expedition, while you may catch a sighting of reindeer or Arctic fox when taking Zodiac excursions to land.



The Untamed North: Iceland to Greenland

Discover the ethereal beauty of Iceland—element sculpted landscapes, mighty glaciers, and geothermal hotspots—while offshore, rock pinnacles serve as the seasonal home for thousands of nesting seabirds. Meet the citizens of colorful fishing villages; cruise by Zodiac beneath emerald hillsides laced with waterfalls; and walk among ruins that recall the heyday of Viking exploration. In the capital of Reykjavík explore the fabled Golden Circle—Thingvellir National Park; Gullfoss waterfall; and the Geysir Center. Your exploration of Greenland begins in Scoresbysund where, for two days, (weather permitting) search for the wildlife that lives among the glittering icebergs or on the wildflower-carpeted tundra. Sailing southward, explore coves and inlets of the pristine coast by Zodiac and visit millennia-old Norse sites and thriving local villages, including Nuuk, the world’s smallest capital. Prins Christian Sund is a photographer’s heaven with cliff-hugging frozen waterfalls and towering volcanoes. And, as you sail the length of Kangerlussuaq Fjord, witness the breathtaking spectacle of sheer vertical cliffs, massive glaciers, and elegant icebergs.

Tromsø, Bear Island & Spitsbergen

Venture from Tromsø deeper into the Arctic Circle past iconic fjords towards the usually ice-bound Svalbard Archipelago. We’ll discover the rarely-visited Bear Island, an important bird area. We’ll explore the wildlife haven of Spitsbergen, a rugged land of deep fjords, mountains and ice sheets, and we’ll spend our time here searching for walrus, seals, reindeer, arctic fox and the illusive polar bear. You’ll also marvel at the colorfully-carpeted tundra which we’ll be able to see first-hand on some of our hikes.

Arctic Archipelagos: Spitsbergen and Franz Josef Land

In the far north of Russia is the icy realm of Franz Josef Land, one of the most remote and raw archipelagos in the world. Discovered less than 150 years ago, it is comprised of about 192 islands and is home to the walrus, polar bear, seal, arctic fox and beluga whale, as well as rich birdlife. Now considered a nature reserve within the Russian Arctic National Park administration, it is visited by few people, and the landscapes of the islands are still dotted with relics from famous explorers of the past.
