Iceland, Jan Mayen and Spitsbergen – Arctic Islands Discovery (Itinerary 2)

This voyage takes you to a rich variety of Atlantic islands. Iceland is the perfect destination for explorers searching for the unexpected, while volcanic Jan Mayen rises from the mid-Atlantic ridge, snow-capped and surrounded by oceans full of life, and Svalbard is home to the King of the Arctic: the polar bear. Join us to experience powerful nature, adventure and history.

Discover the raw and magical beauty of remote Atlantic islands on this journey to the far north. 

Mythical Iceland?is the land of ice and fire, of classic sagas with long arctic winters and summers lit by the midnight sun. This is a haunting landscape of vast expanses of unspoilt nature surrounding small, modern communities.  

Unspoiled and Geologically Active 

Icelandic nature offers stunning landscapes with waterfalls amongst Europe’s most powerful and awe-inspiring. Iceland is located at the Mid-Atlantic Ridge, a position that means that the landscape is highly active geologically, with many erupting volcanoes and geysers. Experience a variety of islands, towns and settlements, spectacular views and interesting sites, accompanied by our knowledgeable Expedition Team. 

Remote Beauty – Cruising to Jan Mayen

Discover the unique settlement of Jan Mayen, with a population of just 14 persons.  This volcanic island in the middle of the north Atlantic is rarely visited by ships.  We should get a fine view of Beerenburg volcano stretching 7,470 feet above sea level. 

Realm of the Polar Bear  – Svalbard

Located just 600 miles from the north pole, Svalbard is an island of deep fjords, mighty glaciers and pure wilderness.  In the summer, beautiful colors and contrasts frame dramatic glaciers, mountains, bird cliffs and endless arctic tundra with diverse flora and fauna, dominated by the mighty polar bear. Join us as we set sail for North West Spitsbergen National Park on Svalbard’s largest island, Spitsbergen.
