Sailing from Norway
Setting sail from Oslo
The intriguing city of Oslo, Norway's capital, has so much to offer, from the open air Norwegian Folk Museum to the amazing Vigeland sculpture park, and from the Holmenkollen Ski Museum to the Munch Museum's collection of memorable paintings. History, art and culture are what defines this lovely city. Oslo was also named European Green Capital in 2019, with an excellent public transport network, plenty of parks and green space, and a revitalised culinary scene that draws on local, sustainably sourced produce.
Svalbard and Jan Mayen: Svalbard
The Svalbard archipelago is a true wilderness, a land of snowy peaks, frozen tundra and glassy seas. You’ll likely have no fixed itinerary here, due to the unpredictable nature of an Arctic expedition; be prepared to drop everything and rush up to the top deck for the chance of a polar bear sighting!
Greenland: Northeast Greenland National Park
Immerse yourself in the world’s largest national park, established in 1974 and covering some 375,000 square miles of uninhabited Arctic wilderness. The park is home to wildlife including polar bears, Arctic hares and musk oxen, and species including walrus, beluga whale and narwhal can be spotted around the coast.
Akureyri is Iceland’s second city, though with just 18,000 inhabitants it’s really more of a small town. Situated on the north coast at the head of Iceland’s largest fjord, it’s a cute and quirky place that also serves as a base from which to explore the bubbling mud pools and lunar landscapes around Lake Mývatn.
This deep fjord cuts into the northern coast of Iceland, in a tranquil region known for its horse breeding; indeed, horses outnumber humans here! There are three islands in the fjord, including the steep-sided Drangey, home to large numbers of puffins, guillemots, auks and other seabirds.
The spectacular Dynjandi waterfall is one of the highlights of Iceland’s Westfjords, cascading down for 100 metres into the bay. The waterfall is often likened to a bridal veil because of the way the water spreads out across the rocks, and the thundering noise of the falls is intense.
Arriving in Reykjavik
Capital of Iceland and gateway to this extraordinary volcanic island, modern Reykjavik is home to an impressive collection of interesting attractions and places of historic significance. Visit the impressive Hallgrímskirkja church, relax in a thermal pool, potter around the old harbour, and with 24 hour daylight in the summer months, you can play golf at midnight, or choose the perfect place to view the midnight sun such as the lighthouse at Grotta or on the waterfront by Sólfar - the Sun Voyager sculpture. If you're like us, you will find travelling out of Reykjavik by land or sea to be unforgettable.
Take a boat tour from Reykjavik’s Old Harbour to see the numerous whales of Faxaflói Bay: harbour porpoises, white-beaked dolphins, minke whales and humpback whales.
