Wildlife cruises to Spitzbergen, Greenland and Iceland

This voyage combines the spectacular wildlife in Spitzbergen with the striking desolate landscapes of Eastern Greenland, and the fascinating history of the Westman Islands. After several days in the Svalbard Archipelago, scouring the ice and glaciers for bears, walrus, foxes and birdlife, the ship crosses the Greenland Sea to explore the rugged coast of Greenland, with an excursion into Scoresbysund, the largest fjord complex in the world, and the birthplace of many icebergs. Finally, off the coast of Iceland we visit the extraordinary volcanic Westman Islands. Being above the Arctic Circle means 24 hour daylight so there is virtually unlimited time to relish in the experiences on this remarkable Arctic voyage.
