Wild Svalbard
& Greenland

Polar Passage

At the very top of the world, renowned for vast tundra, immense glaciers and deep fjords, sits the largest island in the world — Greenland. Reindeer, seals, whales, musk ox and walruses are among the many animals that make the icy waters and rugged shores of these remote lands their home. But amid the far reaches of Arctic Greenland humans have still managed to settle and make a life in the village of Ittoqqortoormiit. As you learn more about the traditions of East Greenland here, engage with the community and spark a conversation that will leave you feeling more deeply connected with the world around you. Take home local handicrafts as a reminder of your bond with newfound friends and a memento of extraordinary explorations. As Zodiac safaris bring you and fellow explorers up close to spectacular fjords on the search for wildlife, a sense of awe is sure to befall you as you realize what you have accomplished together.

Longyearbyen is in a valley on the shores of the idyllic Adventfjord, surrounded by steep mountains and several glaciers. There are only around 25 miles of roads in this village, which is divided into several neighborhoods, including the town center and Nybyen (New Town), which consists of charming miners’ barracks constructed after the war, as well as guest houses, a restaurant and gallery, and not to mention beautiful views of the landmark mountain, Hiorthfjellet. Be sure to visit the Svalbard museum as a break between the plethora of activities like summer dogsledding or cruising to the abandoned Russian city of Pyramiden

Exploring Greenland-Captain’s Choice

Making possible landings amid Greenland National Park, the largest in the world, you may find yourself within one of the country’s largest fjord systems. Plentiful with wildlife from belugas and narwhals to seals, walruses, caribou, musk oxen, and even possible polar bear sightings, it’s a wonderland of nature. Due to its size and limited accessibility, Greenland National Park’s only residents are personnel from meteorological stations and the Danish Armed Forces.

Sep 10 Ittoqqortoormiit, Greenland Arrive: 7:00 am Depart: 11:00 am

Ittoqqortoormiit, Greenland

The name "Ittoqqortoormiit" means "Big-House Dwellers" in the Eastern Greenlandic dialect. Very few visitors make the trek here, as the winters are long, and the sea is frozen for nine months of the year. Ittoqqortoormiit is located at Scoresby Sound and with its side fjord is the largest fjord complex in the world, as well as the world’s longest fjord. Within its borders is the tallest mountain in the Arctic region, the two-mile-tall Gunnbjorn Mountain. During early spring, when the sea ice is still thick, yet the sun is high in the sky, many of the local people go out for a weekend on dog sledding trips.

Sep 12 Isafjörður, Iceland Arrive: 7:00 am Depart: 5:00 pm

Isafjörður, Iceland

Amid the enchanting Westfjords of Iceland stands Ísafjörður, a fishing town thriving with local energy and culture. Summer months here are brisk, but it’s this cool climate combined with breathtaking and quaint scenery that makes the village feel like an undiscovered treasure. The massive depression among the flat-topped mountains called Naustahvilft - known colloquially as the troll seat - combines Iceland’s natural beauty with the town’s rich folklore. Make a stop at Dokkan Brugghús, the only brewery in the entire Westfjords, and sample the local beers, crafted with naturally filtered spring water from the nearby mountains. For those for whom the sea’s siren call beckons, you must visit the Westfjord History Museum, based on Ísafjörður’s maritime heritage and its rise in the fishing industry.

Sep 13 Reykjavik, Iceland Arrive: 8:00 am OVERNIGHT

Reykjavik, Iceland

In the southwest of Iceland near Faxaflói Bay lies the capital of the country, Reykjavík, simultaneously cosmopolitan and charming. The colorful houses on the horizon create a quaint scene that will make you want to stay forever. Kaleidoscopic views await you at the Harpa Concert Hall, a glittering, glass structure that perfectly exemplifies Iceland’s modern design and will fascinate your inner architect. One of Iceland’s most prominent landmarks is Perlan, originally a group of hot water tanks that was converted to a building that now hosts an exhibition, planetarium, restaurant and observation deck, located atop Öskjuhlíð hill.
