13 Day Voyage of Arctic Sights and Northern Lights

Iceland
Adventure Provided by: Steve W.

ACTIVITIES Expeditions Cruising
What to expect

10 September 2017 - 22 September 2017

This memorable voyage starts and finishes in Reykjavík. We explore the stunning Scoresby Sund fjord complex and view the unbelievable scenery, fascinating historical sites, the massive icebergs, a contemporary Inuit village, and view the breathtaking and mesmerising Northern Lights.

On this adventure, we will visit the town of Isafjörður in the Westfjords and on our way back we explore the picturesque Snæfellsnes peninsula. Every night you can experience another excellent opportunity to experience the Northern Lights in a beautiful setting.

Long, narrow channels, strewn with cathedral-like icebergs and flanked by sheer rock walls, make Scoresby Sund one of the largest and most beautiful fjord systems in the world! The tundra landscape of Scoresby Sund is home to wildlife such as muskoxen and the arctic hare. Throughout the region, we also find ancient Thule archaeological sites and historical trappers’ huts and at the modern Inuit village of Ittoqqortoormiit we have the chance to visit a museum and learn about the famous Greenlandic sled dogs.

This voyage is coordinated to bring you to the perfect location during the best season for viewing the Northern Lights. You will also have a great opportunity to experience the celestial phenomenon known as the aurora borealis. The spacious open decks on the vessel along with the typically calm waters make for an ideal stage of mirror-calm water, snowy mountains, and luminous icebergs.

On our way to and from our destination, we have the chance to explore along the west coast of this scenic and diverse country. While in the Westfjords, we will visit the historic fishing port of Ísafjörður, a small town that blends rich cultural heritage and contemporary charm.

We will also explore the Snæfellsnes peninsula to see the Kirkjufell Mountain and the Snæfellsjökull Volcano.
