Discover the raw and magical beauty of remote Atlantic islands on this journey to the far north.
Mythical Iceland is the land of fire and ice, of classic sagas with long Arctic winters, and summers lit by the midnight sun. This is a haunting landscape of vast expanses of unspoiled nature surrounding small, modern communities.
Unspoiled and Geologically Active
Icelandic nature offers stunning landscapes with waterfalls amongst Europe's most powerful and awe-inspiring. Iceland is located at the Mid-Atlantic Ridge, a position that means the landscape is highly active geologically, with many erupting volcanoes and geysers. Experience a variety of islands, towns, and settlements, along spectacular views and interesting sites, accompanied by our knowledgeable Expedition Team.
Remote Beauty - Cruising to Jan Mayen
Discover the unique settlement of Jan Mayen, with a population of just 14 people. This volcanic island in the middle of the North Atlantic Ocean is rarely visited by ships. We should get a fine view of Beerenburg volcano stretching 7,470 feet above sea level.
Realm of the Polar Bear - Svalbard
Located just 600 miles from the North Pole, Svalbard is an island of deep fjords, mighty glaciers and pure wilderness. In the summer, beautiful colors and contrasts frame dramatic glaciers, mountains, bird cliffs, and endless Arctic tundra with diverse flora and fauna, dominated by the mighty polar bear. Join us as we set sail for South Spitsbergen National Park and Isfjorden on Svalbard's largest island, Spitsbergen.
This is an expedition where the elements rule, and the weather, wind and ice conditions will determine our final schedule. Safety is paramount and the captain will decide the sailing itinerary during the voyage. Therefore, this itinerary is just an indication of what you can experience, and why every expedition with Hurtigruten is unique.
The July 1, 2019 departure is an 11 nights itinerary, with 2 additional days in the West Fjords of Iceland.
