This exploration begins in Spitsbergen and sails to Greenland and Iceland for an incomparable Arctic adventure. As we reach the least-visited national park in the world, we might sail for days without seeing another vessel. The chances of meeting a polar wolf or a polar bear are far greater than meeting another human being. Join us for a voyage far beyond the ordinary.

- Explore the largest National Park in the world
- Visit the most isolated settlements in Greenland
- Chance to see polar bears, musk oxen, polar hares, greenland falcons and polar wolves
- Expedition with cabin grade of your choice on a full board basis
- Economy flight between Oslo and Longyearbyen
- Transfer from airport to ship in Longyearbyen
Day 1: Oslo/Longyearbyen
Norway's capital Oslo is often referred to as "the blue, the green and the city in between". Forests, lakes, hills and a fjord surrounds this city. Downtown you will find unique architecture, a thriving cafe and bar culture and top-notch restaurants.
Day 2: Longyearbyen
The Svalbard Islands are located in the Arctic Ocean, halfway between Norway and the North Pole. In the midst of this mighty wilderness is the Norwegian settlement of Longyearbyen, warm under the light of the Midnight Sun as you arrive at the airport, and we transfer you to the harbour where MS Roald Amundsen awaits.
Days 3-4: At Sea
Sea days can be as active or relaxing as you choose! You won’t want to miss the fascinating lectures given by members of the Expedition team as they prepare you for the adventures ahead.
Days 5-8: Northeast Greenland National Park
As we arrive in the largest national park in the world, the splendid isolation of this journey begins to take hold. Apart from some abandoned trapping stations, a weather station and the traditional Sirius sled patrol, there are no traces of humans here.
Day 9: Ittoqqortoormiit
In Ittoqqortoormiit you can visit the museum, church and a photo exhibition, or explore on your own. The trappers living in this town are the only people that are allowed to hunt within the North East Greenland National Park.
Day 10: At Sea
As we leave Greenland, we sail towards the western coast of Iceland. This is an excellent day to attend to lectures and prepare for our return to “civilisation”.
Day 11: Stykkíshólmur
As we reach the west region of Iceland, you will understand why this area is dubbed “The Sagaland”. Take your time to explore Stykkishólmur’s diversity of lava and rock formations, glaciers, volcanic activity, and hot and cold springs.
Day 12: Reykjavik
Iceland's capital offers visitors a rich urban life. Relatively close to Reykjavik you will find glaciers, waterfalls, geysers and mountains. Reykjavik itself hosts fine restaurants, museums and shops. We will arrive in the morning hours, and this is where our voyage ends.
