Three Arctic Islands Expedition Cruise

Tour Leader Jean Iron is hosting a webinar about this tour on Tuesday, October 24 at 2:00pm. Click here to register!

This all-encompassing Arctic expedition touches the wildlife-rich Svalbard in Norway’s Svalbard archipelago, the fjord-lined coast of East Greenland and the elemental, yet highly sophisticated Iceland just south of the Arctic Circle.

This is a realm of big space, big mammals and a storied history of Arctic exploration punctuated by startling successes and devastating failures. During our 13 days at sea on the comfortable, ice-strengthened Ocean Adventurer where onboard presentations and discussions from Polar experts add illuminating context to augment our collective experiences on the ship deck and at our numerous landing points.

Svalbard has numerous sites where large mammals can be readily observed. Svalbard is considered the best place in the world to see Polar Bears during the summer as summer temperatures diminish sea ice and force many Polar Bears to shore to scavenge or even venture among formidable Atlantic Walruses at haul-out sites. Off shore, Ringed and Bearded Seals break the water's surface or rest atop ice floes.

East Greenland is a place of deep fjords and spellbinding expanses of geological and glacial marvels. This land of extremes has a hardened beauty that is especially evident in the iconic Scoresby Sound. Hardy birds such like Rock Ptarmigans and Snow Buntings and mammals like Muskoxen endure on the rolling tundra.

Completing our voyage in Iceland takes us to the edge of Arctic to a geologically young island that continuously evolves under the influences of constant volcanic activity.

This award-winning route is an all-encompassing Arctic experience that will engage your sense of exploration and wonder. Post-trip extension opportunities will be available in Iceland.
