Explore the world’s northern reaches on an epic 13-day adventure. Setting sail aboard the Ultramarine, you’ll cruise around Spitsbergen – the largest island in the Norwegian Svalbard archipelago – spotting polar bears, reindeer, spectacular glacier fronts and tundra in full bloom. A journey south will take you to the rarely visited Jan Mayen, where daily Zodiac trips get you up close to the spectacular north coast. Get back on dry land with an evening in charming Reykjavik, and toast to a true Arctic adventure!
