This expedition takes you to the biggest islands in the Arctic, Spitsbergen, Greenland and Iceland. This is an adventure that cannot be compared to anything else in this hemisphere.
See the Arctic Crown of Norway - Spitsbergen
After a short stop in Longyearbyen, the expedition starts by taking you through the magnificent North West Spitsbergen National Park. The area is characterised by big inland glaciers and a typical alpine landscape, and is filled with spectacular contrasts from lush areas to naked moraines, rocky ridges and glaciers diving into the sea. Kongsfjorden and Magdalenefjorden impress with their dramatic landscapes and interesting history. At 78º 55' N you visit Ny Ålesund, one of the world’s northernmost year-round communities and an advanced High Arctic research station.
Sailing for days without seeing other people or vessels
As we start sailing along the coast of Greenland, you will start to realise that we are quite alone in this remote corner of the world. Once in the fjords of North East Greenland your sense of distance, size and shape of landscapes will be challenged. These are the largest fjords in the world and the surrounding alpine landscape, with hanging glaciers and dramatic vertical granite walls, reaches as far as the eye can see. The chances of meeting a polar wolf or a polar bear are far greater than meeting representatives of our own species.
The mythical Saga Iceland
From the Westfjords of Iceland we spend three days exploring untouched nature with cliffs and valleys, high waterfalls and pure streams. This includes seeing famous places like Grundarfjörður, Flateyri and Ísafjörður, before ending this extraordinary arctic voyage in Reykjavik.
