icon Day 5 -8 : Exploring East Greenland

During our tour of Greenland’s remote eastern coast, we’ll enjoy Zodiac cruises and shore visits to several locations. Explore the remains of ancient Thule settlements and keep an eye out for grazing Musk ox — 40 percent of the world’s population lives here. Finally, sail through spectacular Scoresbysund, the birthplace of many icebergs and, some say, the most beautiful fjord system in the world.

icon Day 9 -10 : Greenland Sea

Meals: breakfast, lunch, dinner

As we continue to cruise north, the Greenland Sea is our pathway toward Svalbard. On deck, learn to identify seabirds 'on the wing.' Take in a presentation, share photos, sip an icy cocktail in the bar or watch a movie—there are many things to do during our time at sea.

icon Day 11 -14 : Explore Spitsbergen and the Svalbard Archipelago.

Meals: breakfast, lunch, dinner

Exploring Spitsbergen, the largest of the Norwegian-ruled Svalbard islands, rewards us with abundant wildlife and austere beauty. Visit spectacular glacier fronts and steep-walled fjords with walrus, Polar bears and Svalbard reindeer amongst our possible wildlife sightings. Birders will be thrilled to see Arctic terns, skuas, Long-tailed ducks, kittiwakes and Ivory gulls. As an added bonus, when conditions are right, we could sail within 10° of the North Pole!

icon Day 15 : Disembark in Longyearbyen and fly to Oslo; end Oslo

Meals: breakfast

The time to say goodbye has come. Our adventure ends in the frontier-style settlement of Longyearbyen. From here, we’ll transfer you to the airport for your return group charter flight to Oslo.
