Our popularitinerary Suggestions

All our itinerary holidays are fully customisable

Reykjavik
1Day

Reykjavik

Arrive in Reykjavik and transfer to your included hotel. Take time this afternoon and tomorrow morning to explore this fascinating city with its shops, impressive cathedral, galleries and thermal baths.

Reykjavik - Embark
2Day

Reykjavik - Embark

In the afternoon it’s time to join your transfer to the port and board the luxury expedition ship M/V Sea Spirit. Settle in to your cabin and explore the ship’s excellent facilities as your crew slip the moorings and sail out of the harbour into the bay of Faxaflói, where you may enjoy the first whale sightings of your expedition.

Denmark Strait
3Day

Denmark Strait

Leaving Iceland behind your expedition ship will sail cross the Denmark Strait towards the stunning landscapes of Eastern Greenland, crossing the Arctic Circle on the way. Keep an eye out on deck for the likely whale sightings and as night falls there are excellent chances of getting your first glimpse of the famous Northern Lights.

Scoresby Sund and East Greenland
4 - 8Days

Scoresby Sund and East Greenland

Scoresby Sund is the world's longest fjord system and contains some of the Arctic region's most impressive scenery with deep, narrow channels and icy peaks, where icebergs calve off glaciers and drift in the waters towards the sea.

In this region, there are fields of tundra where we hope to spot musk oxen and Arctic hare. Here too are ancient Thule archaeological sites, old trappers' huts and modern Inuit hunters' cabins.

We plan to visit Ittoqqortoormiit, the only permanent settlement in the region for an opportunity to mix with the locals and get an insight into their lifestyles.

Your days in Greenland will be filled with exciting Zodiac and land excursions as well as the opportunity to join a kayaking tour through the icy waters of these unique and remarkable lands. Each night brings new possibilities for incredible displays of Aurora Borealis — the Northern Lights. This is the perfect time of year and one of the best places in the world to experience this enthralling phenomenon.

Denmark Strait
9Day

Denmark Strait

After a fantastic time in Scoresby Sund your expedition ship will set course back across the Denmark Strait towards Iceland. Spend time on the panoramic decks looking out for the seabirds following the ship and even more whale sightings. Nightfall may bring another opportunity to enjoy the Northern Lights.

Westfjords
10Day

Westfjords

Before the end of your exciting expedition there is time for one last stop as we explore the rare beauty of the Westfjords, Iceland’s hidden gem. Assessing the sailing conditions, your expedition crew will choose the best course for the day, giving the best opportunities to discover breathtaking coastal fjords, jagged bird cliffs, and tiny fishing villages embracing traditional ways of life.

Reykjavik
11Day

Reykjavik

Arrival back into Reykjavík signals the end of our journey and after breakfast it will be time to say farewell. A transfer will be provided to the international airport or to a downtown location should you wish to extend your stay here to experience more of this beautiful city. From Reykjavík the entire country is accessible through day tours or longer journeys by rental car. The options for additional adventures are endless!
