Our Cruise Itineraries
Svalbard Encompassed

Embark on this incredible 8-day Svalbard Circumnavigation cruise on board a boutique expedition ship touring Norway’s remote Svalbard archipelago within the Arctic Circle. Feast your eyes on the alluring icy blue waters of the polar region as we sail past glaciers calving icebergs to the edge of far-reaching slabs of pack ice that can only be seen in this part of the world. Experience the unique arctic environment, endless days and the rarely seen wildlife that populates it. Very few people ever spot polar bears, walrus, reindeer and arctic foxes in their natural habitat, while thousands of seabirds, beluga whales track our voyage through this unforgettable icy wilderness.

In the north, we’ll cross the Arctic Circle via Grímsey Island, home to Iceland’s largest puffin colony. From Höfn we’ll explore Vatnajökull National Park’s thundering waterfalls and floating icebergs. On a visit to Heimay we’ll learn about its dark past and recent volcanic eruption.
