Arctic Highlights - Svalbard, Gr Overview

Visit Svalbard, Greenland and Iceland in just two weeks

Search for polar bears on Svalbard, explore East Greenland's magnificent fjords and sail in to Iceland, 'The Land of Fire and Ice' on this superlative, two week, Arctic Cruise holiday. Throughout the holiday there will be daily briefings and fascinating lectures about the arctic region, its wildlife and geology, from our friendly team of onboard experts. Outfitted as a cruise ship, the MS Expedition provides an excellent base for polar exploration. With dining areas, presentation rooms, good sized cabins, and viewing decks, we will have plenty of space and entertainment whilst onboard. We begin our voyage in Spitsbergen, deep in the land of the midnight sun. Here we explore the edges of the ice floe on foot and by zodiac accompanied by expert guides, keeping our eyes peeled for wildlife at all times! Leaving Svalbard behind we sail on past the extraordinary fjords of East Greenland where we can walk on the colourful autumnal arctic tundra searching for rare birdlife. We will also have the rare opportunity to visit a local Inuit community in Ittoqqortoormiit. Finally we cross the Denmark Strait to Iceland and we should keep an eye out for a variety of whale species and dolphin as we cruise along. We complete our exploration of the region in the vibrant Icelandic city of Reykjavik; the perfect ending to a truly unforgettable and educational journey filled with unique wildlife and impressive scenery.
