This expedition is the Arctic “jewel in the crown” as you get to experience three of the most magical destinations in the north, all in one fell swoop. In Svalbard you have polar bears, walruses, epic glaciers and sweeping vistas. In Greenland you have mountains and icebergs bigger than you can imagine, muskoxen, polar foxes, and bird life all around. And Iceland, which is literally alive due to its location straddling the mid-Atlantic ridge and therefore being very geothermally active, has an endless number of natural phenomena to see and experience as well.
Day 1 - Embark ship in Longyearbyen
Days 2 to 5 - Explore Svalbard archipelago
Days 6 to 7 - Sail the Greenland Sea
Days 8 to 11 - Eastern Greenland
Day 12 - Sail the Denmark Strait
Day 13 - Disembark in Reykjavik, Iceland
We’re happy to put together an additional add-on Iceland itinerary for you once you step off the ship if you’re interested in exploring the country by land.
REAL ADVENTURES. REAL PEOPLE
She really took care of me and even arranged to have a bottle of wine appear in my room for my birthday!
When I first began talking to Heather about going to Antarctica I knew right away that I’d picked the perfect person to talk to and put my trust in. Having worked on some of the ships herself, her knowledge of the different companies, and their ships, was first rate which made my choices so much easier.
Knowing that she had been to Antarctica multiple times as part of the crew, I was able to ask her the many questions that I had and know that I could fully trust her answers. She really took care of me and even arranged to have a bottle of wine appear in my room for my birthday! I’d wholeheartedly recommend talking to Heather, and the team at Twin Tracks, if Antarctica is your dream trip.
We’re a different kind of agency. We work on the ships, with the teams, and are currently active in the polar regions. Our insider advice is truly that - straight from the field - and it's updated in real time if things change.
