Across 15 magical days, you’ll explore the rugged, snow-topped coastline of Iceland, Greenland and Spitsbergen on a cruise through the arctic. A wildlife wonderland, you can expect to spot walrus, polar bears and Svalbard reindeer as well as Arctic terns, skuas, and Brunnich’s guillemots. Plus, if the weather allows, you could wave to Santa and sail within 10 degrees of the North Pole. On-shore visits and Zodiac excursions will make it possible for you to explore the wilderness that sports spectacular glacial fronts and tundra in bloom as well as towering mountain terrain. One for the true explorers – this trip is not to be missed!
