Three Arctic Islands: Ocean Adventurer

Iceland, Greenland, Spitsbergen. This award-winning expedition cruise takes you to Scorsbysund, on the northeast coast of Greenland, Iceland, and high above the Arctic Circle in Spitsbergen, Norway. Iconic Arctic animals such as the polar bear, musk ox, reindeer and walrus are commonly seen. No other Arctic adventure takes in such varied destinations ranging from active volcanoes to massive glaciers. If you want to experience the Arctic in all of its beauty, then you must venture to these three Arctic islands.

Day 1 — Embarkation Day in Longyearbyen Your voyage will embark in Longyearbyen, Spitsbergen. Day 2-5 — Spitsbergen, Norway Exploring Spitsbergen, the largest of the Norwegian-ruled Svalbard islands, rewards you with abundant wildlife and austere beauty. Here you’ll visit spectacular glacier-fronts and steepwalled fjords with walrus, polar bears and Spitsbergen reindeer among your possible wildlife sightings. Birders will be thrilled to see Arctic terns, skuas, long-tailed ducks, kittiwakes and ivory gulls. Days 6 - 7 — Greenland Sea While sailing south through the historic Greenland Sea, you’ll learn about the wildlife and history of Greenland, your next stop. On deck you’ll learn to identify seabirds on the wing. Take in a lecture, share your photos, sip an icy cocktail in the bar or watch a movie; there are many things to do during your time at sea. Days 8 - 11 — Eastern Greenland During your tour of Greenland’s remote eastern coast, you’ll enjoy Zodiac cruises and shore visits to several remote locations. Visit the remains of ancient Thule settlements, and keep an eye out for grazing musk ox; 40% of the world’s population live here. Finally, you will sail through spectacular Scoresbysund, the birthplace of many icebergs and, some say, the most beautiful fjord system in the world. Day 12 — Denmark Strait At sea, the Denmark Strait is your southward pathway east towards Iceland. Your Expedition Team will keep you informed and entertained with presentations about the history of exploration in the Arctic and the seabirds that you’ll inevitably see soaring above your ship. Day 13 — Disembarkation Day in Akureyri We disembark in Akureyri. From here we fly to the domestic airport in Reykjavik, Iceland’s capital. We provide a transfer to downtown Reykjavik. Please note These prices are guaranteed against fuel price increases. No fuel surcharge will be applied. Important reminder: Embracing the unexpected is part of the legacy – and excitement – of expedition travel. There are no guarantees that we can achieve everything we set out to accomplish. A measure of flexibility is something all of us must bring to a voyage. There are many possible landing sites and the places mentioned above may be changed to others equally as interesting.
