Three Arctic Islands

Three Arctic Islands Three Arctic Islands
£ 5499

From Iceland, this expedition takes you high into the Arctic Circle. You’ll cruise the icy wonderland of Viking explorers and encounter a huge variety of local inhabitants.

It could just be the most memorable fortnight of your life. By voyaging to these three unforgettable islands you will have the opportunity to enter the realm of Viking adventurers. You will sail across glittering seas strewn with ice floes. You will visit the birthplace of icebergs; find yourself in one of the world’s most beautiful fjord systems; visit extraordinary volcanic regions and walk across flower-bespattered tundra meadows.

You could encounter polar bears and walruses. You could watch bearded, ringed and harp seals at play. You could photograph bowhead and beluga whales breaking surface between majestic icebergs.

And you will definitely see innumerable seabirds in their colossal, cliff-edge nesting sites. You may even feel the spirit of the Vikings as you prepare to land on an icy shore, in your Zodiac ‘longboat’.

Shore visits are part of the experience but depend on weather conditions. Extra excursions vary with different itineraries and weather, and could typically include:

  • Kayaking on the icy waters
  • Hiking
  • Snow shoeing
