Cruise Overview

Epic Arctic scenery and pristine wilderness

17-day expedition cruise from Iceland, exploring the stunning and remote coastlines of east Greenland and Svalbard. 

Discover epic scenery and captivating nature in true explorer style as your flexible route makes the best of the conditions. 

Witness spectacular glaciers and icebergs as your expedition ship probes remote fjords. 

Greenland’s majestic fjords 

From Reykjavík, we’ll sail to picturesque Patreksfjörður before heading towards volcanic Jan Mayen - one of our planet’s most remote places. Continuing to stunning Svalbard, we'll visit some of Spitsbergen’s most remarkable fjords and witness awe-inspiring vistas, from the towering mountains of Hornsund to the lush, glacier-carved valleys of Isfjorden. 

Awe inspiring scenery 

If conditions favour us, we’ll then head to Greenland’s ever-changing sea-ice edge to search for wildlife, before continuing to stunning Svalbard. We plan to explore the lush fjord system of Isfjorden and head south towards Hornsund – one of the region’s most picturesque waterways. A community visit to remote Ittoqqortoormiit in east Greenland rounds off our adventure before we return to Reykjavík.
