Why book this trip?

Combining the North Atlantic Ocean's wildest outposts, this voyage takes you from historic Orkneys to the lush and craggy Faroe Islands, with its cliffs teeming with seabirds. From here, you'll voyage across to the ice-covered slopes of Mount Beerenberg, the northern-most volcano in the world, situated on Jan Mayen Island, before venturing in search of enigmatic polar bears, hunting on the Svalbard pack ice. Summer in the Arctic, especially north of the Arctic Circle, means days of near endless daylight, allowing you to experience as much as possible under the light of the Midnight Sun.

Itinerary

Itineraries on some departure dates may differ, please select the itinerary that you wish to explore.

Day 1 - Arrive Aberdeen and board the M/V Greg Mortimer

Make your own way to the port at Aberdeen. Our expedition team will welcome you aboard the MV Greg Mortimer in the afternoon. After settling into your cabin, we will set sail towards the Orkney Islands. Over the next few days, we will explore Stone Age villages such as Skara Brae and witness relics from the Viking era, as we stop at various sites along the way.

Accommodation:

Grade: Premium Boat

Meals Provided: Dinner

Day 2 - Kirkwall, Orkneys

Discover the rich history in Kirkwall, capital of the Orkney Islands. Initial impressions are misleading as the harbour area looks modern, but in the old town you will explore narrow, winding streets and lanes which have remained relatively unchanged over the centuries. Explore magnificent St. Magnus Cathedral, built from red and white sandstone, across the road at Tankerness House and Gardens, a restored 16th century former manse, now houses the Orkney Museum. The museum features archaeological artefacts from Neolithic times to the Viking era. The exhibition is a great way to whet your appetite for the archaeological gems that you will find on the mainland, including the unique and well-preserved 5,000-year-old semi-subterranean village of Skara Brae.

Everything west of Kirkwall is known as West Mainland, an area of rich farmland, rolling hills and moorland, with dramatic cliffs along the Atlantic coastline. Some of the main archaeological attractions we may see include the standing Stones of Stenness, the Ring of Brodgar, and the chambered tombs of Maes Howes that to this day, still have unresolved mysteries. One of the mainland's main attractions is Skara Brae, the best-preserved Stone Age village in northern Europe, located in the spectacular white sands of the Bay of Skaill. Revealed in 1850 after a storm blew away the dunes, the site dates from approximately 5,000 years ago and was occupied for about 600 years, showing a unique picture of the lifestyle of the original inhabitants.

Day 3 - Faroe Islands

In the middle of the North Atlantic, barely visible on most world maps, you will find the Faroe Islands, an archipelago consisting of 18 islands with a population of only 50,000. The Faroe Islands are built up of layers of volcanic basalt, and are tilted with the eastern shores sloping into the sea and the western coasts rising up in soaring and spectacular cliffs. With their breathtaking beauty, steep mountains covered in soft green grass, deep fjords, long summer nights, unique culture, and humble, friendly and welcoming people, the islands are the perfect destination for travellers wanting something dramatically different from the mainstream.

Accommodation:

Grade: Premium Boat

Meals Provided: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner

Day 4 - Faroe Islands

Discover a few of the gems of the Faroe Islands including Tórshavn, Kirkjubour, Mykines and Vestmanner. In Torshavn, possibly the smallest capital in the world, wander the narrow streets of this windswept town, built on a hillside with colourful contemporary houses and old traditional timber dwellings, all painted red and with characteristic grass roofs, white-framed windows and black wood. The town's history can be traced back to around 900 AD when the first Viking settlers arrived here by longboat from Norway.

Accommodation:

Grade: Premium Boat

Meals Provided: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner

Day 5 - Faroe Islands

Landing at Mykines can be tricky. The cliffs are sheer and there are steps to climb once you are out of the Zodiac, but the views are impressive. Geographically, Mykines is the Faroe's most westerly outpost, and the island is dubbed as the paradise of birds. Here you will find gannets, kittiwakes, fulmars, guillemots and puffins. We are able to get quite close to the birds, by sailing under the majestic bird cliffs or on a hike. In addition to the seabirds, the Faroe Islands is a magnet for birds that migrate over the North Atlantic Ocean. Around 300 bird species have been recorded here but only around 100 species are regular migrants, or breeding birds. This means that about 200 species are rare migrants and new birds are added to the national list every year.

One of the highlights in the Faroe Islands is Vestmanna Birdcliffs, where you can explore caves, arches, waterfalls by Zodiac and cruise below majestic cliffs, towering hundreds of metres above you. You may see kittiwakes and fulmars overhead, with razorbills and guillemots sitting on nests high above and also, puffins bobbing in the sea.

Accommodation:

Grade: Premium Boat

Meals Provided: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner

Day 6 - At Sea

Enjoy sailing to Jan Mayen Island accompanied by sea birds along the way. Keep a look out for whales which are often seen on the crossing.

Day 7 - At Sea

Enjoy presentations from our team of experts and get to know your fellow expeditioners, as we sail towards Jan Mayen.

Accommodation:

Grade: Premium Boat

Meals Provided: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner

Day 8 - Jan Mayen

The approach to Jan Mayen is spectacular. The huge Beerenberg volcano at 2,277 metres, is the world's northernmost active volcano which last erupted in 1985. The northern part of the island is a great place to spot whales and dolphins and contains impressive glaciers, some of which reach the sea. If the weather is favourable, we will try to land at Kvalrossbukta, a relatively sheltered bay on the island's west coast. This is one of the landings used to supply the weather station Olonkinbyen, situated on the eastern side of the island. We hope to land in front of the Norwegian station at Olonkinbyen, stop to visit the weather station, before embarking on a three-hour hike, depending on weather, to the other side of the Island where the ship will be waiting in Kvalrossbukta.

Accommodation:

Grade: Premium Boat

Meals Provided: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner

Day 9 - At Sea

The sea around Jan Mayen offers excellent whale-watching opportunities; bottlenose, fin, and perhaps even bowhead whales, can be seen in the pack ice. Sail towards Svalbard, searching for the ice edge as we continue north, retracing the route of Dutch explorer Willem Barents, who discovered Spitsbergen and the Barents Sea.

Accommodation:

Grade: Premium Boat

Meals Provided: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner

Day 10 - At Sea

You may see harp seal pups on the pack ice, while their mothers hunt for food. As we approach Svalbard, all eyes will be focused on spotting polar bears and other marine wildlife.

Accommodation:

Grade: Premium Boat

Meals Provided: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner

Day 11 - Northern Svalbard

Over the next few days, the Svalbard Archipelago is ours to explore. Our experienced expedition team, who have made countless journeys to this area, will use their expertise to design our voyage from day to day. This allows us to make best use of the prevailing weather, ice conditions and wildlife opportunities. There are many exciting places we can choose to visit and final landing sites will be determined based on the ice and wildlife.

Accommodation:

Grade: Premium Boat

Meals Provided: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner

Day 12 - Northern Svalbard

In the far north at Nordvesthjornet and Raudfjorden, Willem Barentsz and his crew discovered new land on 17 June, 1596. They described the land as being 'rugged for the most part and steep, mostly mountains and jagged peaks, from which we gave it the name of Spitsbergen.' In the centuries that followed, the large number of bowhead whales found here attracted whalers from the Netherlands and various other countries, and the area became a place of high activity, both on the shore and in the surrounding sea. This is why Nordvesthjornet offers the largest concentration of cultural artefacts on Spitsbergen, all dating back to this first era of the exploitation of Svalbard's natural resources.

Accommodation:

Grade: Premium Boat

Meals Provided: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner

Day 13 - Northern Svalbard

Moffen Island is situated directly north of 80°N. After the near exctinction of walrus in Svalbard in the middle of the 20th century, Moffen Island played an important role in re-establishing the species here, a process which is still going on. Today, there are often larger numbers of walrus hauled out at the southern tip of the island.This is the reason why Moffen is protected. Approach during the summer (15th May to 15th September) is limited to a minimum distance of 500 metres.

In the very north of Svalbard, in the ocean north of Nordaustlandet, is the little archipelago of Sjuoyane, known as the Seven Islands, with its characteristic hat-shaped mountains. The hard granite mountains have acquired a green covering of moss due to thousands of breeding seabirds. Walrus dive for clams in the waters between the islands and in the bays. Most of the islands have been named after the English North Pole expeditions led by Phipps (1773) and Parry (1827). When the ice breaks up around Sjuoyane and the first seabirds return in April-May, the islands wake again after a long winter, during which the only wildlife is the odd polar bear, Arctic fox, reindeer and walrus. There is a large number of bird cliffs in Sjuoyane, scattered around most of the islands. Little auks come in the largest numbers, but there are also several smaller colonies of Atlantic puffins and Brünnich's guillemots. Common guillemots nests are scattered around the islands. One of the few known colonies of ivory gulls can be found on Phippsoya. There are also several haul-out sites for walrus on Sjuoyane. The most reliable place to encounter them is Isflakbukta on the island of Phippsoya, where up to 100 animals can be seen on the beach, and normally walrus are very active in the shallow bay. Polar bears can be seen anywhere on Sjuoyane. The polar bear distribution is strongly related to the distribution of sea ice. If there is drift ice around the islands it is more likely that there will be polar bears on the islands. Usually there are also a few polar bears remaining in the area over the summer, as well as reindeer and arctic fox.

Grade: Premium Boat

Meals Provided: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner

Day 14 - Northern Svalbard

We hope to visit Magdalenefjorden, located inside the Northwest Spitsbergen National Park. According to historical sources, Magdalenefjorden was first used by the English in the early days of the whaling era. They erected a land station on the headland and named the area Trinity Harbour. The station was closed in 1623. The spectacular alpine scenery is lined with jagged mountain peaks, to which Spitsbergen (pointed mountains) owes its name. The topography of the area is mostly rocky, shorelines are covered with stones and walking here can be challenging. Vegetation in the area is limited to mosses and lichens which grow near to the bird colonies. Little auks breed here in large numbers in the scree slopes everywhere around Magdalenefjorden. Amazingly, reindeer occasionally roam around on mossy slopes and polar bears as well as walrus are regularly seen here.

Accommodation:

Grade: Premium Boat

Meals Provided: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner

Day 15 - Arrive Longyearbyen

During the early morning, we cruise into Longyearbyen. You will have time to enjoy a brief tour of the town of Longyearbyen, before transferring to the airport in the afternoon.

Clothing


Parkas
A complimentary parka is provided for you on board the ship and is yours to keep after the voyage. It has a comfortable wind-resistant inner jacket, which is detachable from the waterproof outer shell, and is designed to be worn over your essential base layers.
Gloves
Keeping your hands warm and dry can be a challenge. Thin polypropylene gloves can be worn underneath warm outergloves. This allows you some protection from the cold when removing your gloves to operate your camera etc. We strongly recommend that you bring more than one pair of gloves, in case one gets wet (or lost).
Hat/Cap
Warm, woollen hat/cap to protect your ears, as well as a scarf, neck gaiter or other face protection, such as a balaclava.
Trousers
Water-resistant trousers of coated nylon or, even better, Gore-Tex® are essential for your comfort. They can be worn over your regular clothes to keep you warm and dry. We suggest that you purchase trousers a few sizes larger than you normally wear as you will be wearing them over other clothing. Gore-Tex® or similar fabrics are excellent for keeping out wind and water without trapping excess heat. Rain gear and Gore-Tex® products can be found in any outdoor sport clothing store. In addition to your waterproof trousers, warm ski pants are suggested if you have them. Warm trousers such as jeans, corduroys etc are also good.
Socks
Warm wool socks worn over a thin pair of silk, polypropylene socks should provide enough warmth and insulation for your feet. Bring several pairs of socks, since you will inevitably get your feet wet.
Outer Clothing Woollen, knit or cotton sweaters/tops, polar fleece tops (medium weight), several cotton turtlenecks and T-shirts for layering on and off the ship.
Underclothing
Thermal underwear is highly recommended as it will keep you warm without adding bulk. Most polar travellers prefer a lightweight version.

Footwear

Complimentary waterproof boots will be supplied on-board. However, if you have extra small or large feet, you are advised to bring your own. Also ensure you take good walking boots and trainers for relaxing.
