Island adventures 

Our springtime adventure starts in Bergen, Norway, before sailing to Lerwick in Scotland’s Shetland Isles. From there, we travel to the green Faroe Islands, then cross to the north coast of Iceland. We finish our expedition cruise in Longyearbyen after sailing to scenic Spitsbergen in the High Arctic, in all its untouched glory. 

Keep watch for wildlife 

The pristine waters and stunning islands on this North Atlantic island-hopping adventure are home to all kinds of wildlife. We'll look out for birds, whales and more along the way. Keep your eyes peeled for the majestic – but elusive – polar bear as we sail the waters around Spitsbergen.
