Spitsbergen, Jan Mayen, Greenland, Iceland – Arctic Islands Discovery (Westbound)

Urban Oslo, cozy Longyearbyen

Your Arctic adventure starts in cosmopolitan Oslo, which you can explore before your flight to Svalbard. After an overnight stay in Longyearbyen, we’ll set sail for the rugged fjords and towering mountains of Northwest Spitsbergen National Park—the land of polar bears.

Volcanic islands, spectacular fjords

From here, you’ll cruise to the isolated island of Jan Mayen, where you’ll visit an active volcano. Then head to the Scoresby Sund in eastern Greenland to marvel at the largest fjord system on Earth, before setting course toward beautiful Stykkishólmur in Iceland. Your expedition cruise ends in lively Reykjavík.
