Ports

  • Longyearbyen

    Originally established as a mining town along breathtaking Isfjorden, Longyearbyen is now Svalbard’s largest city, a vibrant cultural hub and an ideal launching pad for your polar adventures. Fulfill a lifelong dream by riding a sled pulled by huskies and visit a mysterious ice cave, whose translucent walls gleam in shades of blue and white. Journey to the Russian mining ghost town of Pyramiden, where fascinating vestiges of a once thriving operation still stand, and continue to Barentsburg, an inhabited Russian settlement that offers a compelling contrast to Longyearbyen. For an invigorating adventure, kayak among small chunks of ice floating offshore or hike through Svalbard’s lunar-like landscapes, perhaps ascending to Plateau Mountain for superlative views or trekking to the critically important Global Seed Vault, a repository for Earth’s plant life. Learn the exhilarating tales of intrepid explorers at the North Pole Expedition Museum, where exhibits shed light on some of history’s most daring voyages. Hang up your coat at Huset, a sophisticated eatery that wouldn’t be out of place in the world’s culinary capitals, and try unusual and impeccably prepared regional dishes such as reindeer and seal steak.

  • Exploration Day

  • Northeast Greenland National Park *

    At approximately 375,000 square miles and covering over a fourth of Greenland’s landmass, Northeast Greenland National Park is one of the world’s largest protected areas and a deeply rewarding destination truly off the beaten path. Its forbidding interior is comprised of a seemingly unending ice sheet, with the surrounding coastline broken up by spectacular glaciers of staggering scale. Barren, sculptural mountains and plateaus encase the slow-moving rivers of ice, providing a haven for an unexpected variety of wildlife, most notably about 40% of the world’s musk oxen. Although the local polar bears are shy, it’s possible to spot them along with walrus, collared lemmings, stoats, Arctic hares and Arctic foxes. A wealth of wildlife populates the frigid waters, including several species of seals and many types of whales, of which the pale Beluga and the curiously tusked narwhal may be the most striking. You’ll discover that the ever-present birds also merit attention, from the loon with its distinctive call to the stunningly hued king eider. Cruising beside this land completely uninhabited by humans might be the closest you’ll ever be to nature in its purest form.

  • Scoresbysund *

    Boasting one of the largest fjord complexes in the world, Scoresbysund astonishes visitors with its surprisingly fertile and colorful terrain. Thanks to the wide mouth of the main fjord, which never entirely freezes, and the protection afforded by towering basalt cliffs that blunt the winds, numerous species are drawn to this relatively sheltered corner of Greenland. Vast populations of musk ox traverse the landscape of vibrant tundra while Arctic fox, Arctic hare and other native fauna dart among the low-lying vegetation. This being Greenland, however, ice is ever-present atop the commanding peaks and carved into breathtaking icebergs that glide through the glassy waters. Splendid birds circle overhead or amble gingerly on the rocky coasts, including enchanting puffins, regal gyrfalcons and adorable little auks. Along the coast, imposing walruses vie for space with ringed, harp, hooded, harbor and bearded seals, all in competition for the sea’s rich bounty. As you meander these sublime fjords, you’ll be grateful for the privilege to share the exquisite scenery with such glorious creatures.

  • At Sea

  • Akureyri

    Despite boasting the second largest population in Iceland after Reykjavik, Akureyi is a cozy town of under 20,000 that provides access to some of Iceland’s most stunning attractions. You’ll find Akureyi at the very end of Eyjafjördur, a magnificent fjord lined with emerald fields that arc toward snow-capped summits. The surrounding Mývatn region is blessed with spectacular waterfalls such as Godafoss, Selfoss and Dettifoss, lauded as the most powerful cascade in Europe. As a soothing respite, step into the geothermically heated waters of the Mývatn Nature Baths, soaking in waters rich in beneficial minerals. You’ll be delighted by the Laufás turf houses, whose simple white-and-red façades hold up grass-covered roofs that magically blend into the adjacent hill. Stroll the pathways of the Arctic Botanical Gardens, the world’s northernmost garden of its kind, and marvel at a colorful array of blooms that burst forth in the warmer seasons. For a terrific panorama of the town and countryside, climb the steps to the Akureyrarkirkja church, a splendid example of mid 20th-century architecture, and enjoy Akureyri’s more playful side at the Christmas House, a themed shop and garden that sells Icelandic holiday handicrafts and mouthwatering treats that make for a perfect gift or a tempting indulgence for yourself.

  • Hornstrandir

    Jutting out from northwestern Iceland, much like the horn its name suggests, gorgeous Hornstrandir shimmers in shades of brown, green and yellow that beguilingly transition from one to another as the topography shifts. A nature reserve that is part of the greater Westfjords region, the spellbinding scenery is distinguished by upwardly curving terrain that suddenly breaks off and gives way to sheer seaside cliffs. Throughout the emerald meadows coating the land, Arctic fox wander freely in search of the region’s appetizing birds. Birdwatchers need not fear, however, as the industrious foxes could barely put a dent in the avian population, which numbers in the millions. In the haven of Hornvík Bay, you’ll discover eye-catching waders such as sandpipers, redneck pharalopes and golden plovers. But the main show is found on the surrounding cliffs of Hælavíkurbjarg and Hornbjarg, where significant numbers of puffins, fulmars, kittiwakes and razorbills are nearly dwarfed by the world’s largest colonies of guillemots. As you lose count of the agile sea birds soaring overhead, you’ll feel your spirit take flight beside them.

  • Reykjavik

    Welcome to the vibrant capital of Iceland, a cosmopolitan city and an inviting haven found amid some of the world’s most dramatic scenery. Towering above the skyline, the remarkable Hallgrímskirkja church echoes the geometry of basalt columns, whereas the angular Harpa Concert Hall dazzles with its countless faceted glass panels. In the National Museum of Iceland, examine an enthralling collection of artifacts tracing over 1,200 years of history, including the treasured 13th-century Valþjófsstaður door, whose intricate carvings depict the slaying of a dragon. The Perlan Museum offers the compelling opportunity to wander through a faithful recreation of an ice cave among its many fascinating exhibits. Gaze at the iconic Sun Voyager sculpture, an evocative take on a Viking longship, and in Árbæjarsafn meander through a recreated Icelandic village that brings pre-modern Reykjavik to life. The bucolic island of Viðey is home to Yoko Ono’s renowned Imagine Peace Tower, beams of light sent skyward, and offers the chance to see delightful puffins in the wild. In the countryside, marvel at spectacular waterfalls such as Seljalandsfoss and Gullfoss, one of the most photographed places in Iceland. A visit to the famed Blue Lagoon is almost de rigueur, geothermically heated waters rich in minerals that provide the perfect balm for the adventurous traveler.
