GET TO KNOW

THE REGION

ARCTIC CIRCLE CROSSING

Become a member of the Order of the Blue Nose as you cross the Arctic Circle. Reaching into regions of the North Pole, where you may spot the rare polar bear, you’re sure to tap into your explorer spirit.

CROSSING N80° MOFFEN

Follow in the wake of great explorers like Francis Drake, Captain James Cook and Henry Hudson who attempted to cross the 80th parallel in search of a passageway that connects the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans. The N80° is the circle of latitude that is 80 degrees north of the Earth’s equatorial plane, in the Arctic, intersecting the Atlantic Ocean, Europe, Asia, the Arctic Ocean and North America. Just north of 80° after the point of the crossing you will come to Moffen, a small, low island north of the mouth of Wijdefjorden, on the northern coast of Spitsbergen, the largest island of the Svalbard archipelago.

EXPLORING SVALBARD

Even in one of the most isolated regions of the Arctic, there is still the captivating history of a pioneering past. Our expedition leaders, along with the captain and onboard pilot, will determine possible landings each day for all-out explorations. Wildlife abounds throughout the archipelago of Svalbard, such as puffins, reindeer, Arctic terns and foxes. An expert photographer will help you look out for the perfect photo opportunity of these animals, but especially for the elusive polar bear. As Zodiac safaris may bring you closer to glaciers, keep your eyes on the water for whale fins and look out for pieces of calving ice.

EXPLORING GREENLAND

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.

FJORDS OF GREENLAND

A once-in-a-lifetime adventure is yours to have on the largest island in the world, Greenland. At the very top of the world, it’s renowned for its vast tundra, immense glaciers and deep fjords. From an aerial view, the systems link together like the roots of a massive tree and stretching coastlines are dotted with small islands. Landscapes include enormous icebergs and glaciers. Depending on the time of year, you may see the Northern Lights swirl overhead and polar bears hunt on the ice.

CAPTAIN’S CHOICE – Captain’s Choice ports of call add to the sense of adventure and an element of surprise. Your ship’s Captain takes you to the best areas for wildlife viewing and expertly navigates to remote and hidden landings for a more intimate destination immersion.
