From massive glaciers and drifting icebergs to boiling mud pots and spouting geysers, the European Arctic is an awe-inducing natural realm. It’s also home to a wondrous array of wildlife—polar bears, caribou, whales, seals, huge colonies of nesting seabirds, and more. The short, intense summer sees the greening tundra abloom in wildflowers, and waterfalls thundering from sheer peaks. Inuit and Viking heritage have also shaped this daunting land, with human habitation going back centuries. Depending on the itinerary you choose, your European Arctic cruise may include Norway’s fjord-rent coast; ice-clad Svalbard, home to numerous polar bears; the geothermal wonders of Iceland, and remote Greenland, one of the world’s last truly wild places.
