Cruise Into The Arctic

Cruise Into The Arctic
Fabulous Norwegian Fjords
Set sail from Bergen - the gateway to Norway's fjords - to the remote shores of Svalbard on this dazzling 15-day odyssey across the Norwegian Sea. Walk across the glaciers that carved the stunning landscapes, explore subarctic islands by Zodiac in search of polar bears, walk through history at UNESCO-protected historical sites, and much more. Don't merely pine for the fjords; find them.

En-route, we will have time to enjoy the picturesque Lofoten Islands. This enchanting collection of islands that form the Lofotens are rightly famous for their azure waters and the colourful fishermen's cabins that dot the coast. We also plan to cruise in to the nearby Trollfjord, one of Norway's shortest and yet most dramatic fjords. Called the 'Gateway to the Arctic', Tromsø is the last major habitation before we head deeper into the Arctic Circle towards the usually ice-bound outpost of the Svalbard archipelago, more commonly known as Spitsbergen. A rugged land of deep fjords, mountains and ice sheets, we spend our time here searching for walrus, seal, reindeer, arctic fox and the mighty polar bear.

Tour Highlights

  • Sail into Norway's dramatic fjords, beneath glaciers and mountains
  • Walk through history at UNESCO-protected historical sites
  • Travel to the heart of Spitsbergen to meet the mighty polar bear
  • Get close to the wildlife and scenery with Zodiac excursions to shore

Ship Description
Expedition
At a nimble 105 metres (345 ft) in length, with a capacity to hold 132 guests, the Expedition is an ideal vessel to ply polar waters. The ship is large enough to provide stability, speed, spacious cabins and ample public space, yet she is small enough to manoeuvre in remote areas and get you close to the action. Ship stabilizers ensure a smooth ride in rough waters, such as the infamous Drake Passage enroute to the Antarctic, allowing you to enjoy more of your time at sea. A fleet of ten zodiacs allows passengers to get out and actively explore the remote shores of our destinations. The Expedition is a speedy vessel. A top speed of 16 knots means you'll spend less time getting from A to B, and more time to explore your
surroundings.
