    HIGHLIGHTS: Longyearbyen - Spitsbergen

    Day 1 Embarkation day in Longyearbyen
    Wander the frosty streets of the world's northernmost city before setting sail on your Arctic adventure. Get to know life as a ship-dweller and look out at snowy mountain peaks as they recede into the horizon.

    Day 2-8 Exploring Spitsbergen
    Tucked far away in the remote wilds of the Arctic, Spitsbergen is bursting with incredible wildlife, polar deserts and immense glaciers. Far from being a wasteland, the tundra-covered landscapes can be surprisingly colourful in summer, with wildflowers bursting forth for a taste of sunshine. Begin by exploring the western coast of the island en route to the stunning fjords and outlying islands to the north. While the itinerary can be as varied as the unpredictable polar weather, the ship will endeavour to get as close as possible to some of the island's must-see locations, including 14th July Glacier, Smeerenburg, Phippsoya, Alkhornet and the Hinlopen Strait. There are also opportunities to spot polar bears roaming around on sheets of white, as well as the various nesting birdlife among the towering cliffs of Alkefjellet. Along the way, be sure to scour the coast for imposing walruses lazing on rocky shores. From Arctic foxes, reindeer and, of course, whales, the opportunities for wildlife spotting in this frozen land are endless. Get closer to the action by jumping in a sea kayak to discover isolated coves, and strap on some snowshoes to venture onto the mainland. Visit a historic whaling memorial to learn about those who risked their lives in the 17th and 18th centuries to work in extreme Arctic conditions.

    Day 9 Disembarkation in Longyearbyen
    Return to Longyearbyen, where this Arctic adventure ends.

    HIGHLIGHTS: Longyearbyen - Spitsbergen

    Day 1 Embarkation in Longyearbyen
    Begin this Arctic adventure in Svalbard's largest settlement. Situated at the base of a valley, the town is known for its spectacular surroundings and mountainous backdrop blending with the deep blue of the Arctic Ocean.

    Day 2-10 Exploring Spitsbergen
    Succumb to the mystique of the Arctic as you explore the nooks and crannies of Spitsbergen. This is the largest island in Norway's Svalbard archipelago and is home to spectacular rugged landscapes and a treasure trove of wildlife. Each day, embark on expeditions around the island, from vast rocky coasts and silent fjords to tundra filled with colourful wildflowers. Hike the stunning 14th July Glacier, discover the ghost towns of early whaling stations in Smeerenburg and watch for prowling polar bears on the ice sheets of Phippsoya. Be on the look out for Arctic foxes, walruses, whales and a rich array of seabirds such as barnacle geese and snow buntings. Spitsbergen is known as the wildlife capital of the Arctic and an astonishing bouquet of animal life waits at every turn. There is no fixed schedule for these eight days; weather conditions are highly changeable, but each day is packed with possibilities for adventure, whether it's walrus-spotting on the coast of Torellneset, venturing snowshoe-clad inland to Ny-London or taking a sea kayak to seek out remote coves.

    Day 11 Disembark in Longyearbyen
    This Arctic expedition draws to a close in the place it began, in the quirky, colourful town of Longyearbyen.

    HIGHLIGHTS: Reykjavik - Grundarfjorour - Isafjorour - Grindavik - Heimay - Surtsey islands - Jokulsarlon - Hofn - Seydisfjordur - Husavik - Grimsey island - Westfjords - Akureyri

    Day 1 Reykjavik
    Arrive in the Icelandic capital this morning and transfer to your included Reykjavik hotel. You will have the day on your own to explore the city. Join us at the hotel in the evening for a welcome reception and orientation.

    Day 2 Golden Circle and Embarkation
    After breakfast, we will venture south from Reykjavik along Iceland's famous Golden Circle route, starting with Thingvellir National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Here we'll enter a dramatic landscape of wild contrasts, with lava plains, clear lakes and wildflowers in the shadow of soaring mountains. This was also the site of Iceland's parliament from 930 until 1798. We will also visit Iceland's most famous waterfall, Gullfoss, at the height of its flow. We complete the Golden Circle with Haukadalur, where we'll see the Strokkur geyser erupt every 5-10 minutes as well as plenty of other evidence of the intense geological processes beneath our feet. After lunch, we'll make our way to the Ocean Nova and set sail.

    Day 3 Grundarfjorour
    Today we will reach the photogenic Snaefellsnes peninsula and visit our first small Icelandic town. We will sail into the small harbor and have a chance to walk around this picturesque fishing village. In the afternoon, we will sail to the westernmost point of Iceland. If we can stop at the seabird colony, we will spot Atlantic puffins, thick-billed murres and black-legged kittiwakes.

    Day 4 Isafjorour
    We awake to the sight of the Westfjords area, with its high rock walls carved by intense glacier action. Here we'll find the colorful town of isafjorour, home to a charming museum dedicated to Iceland's rich maritime history. We may also have a chance to sample some local Icelandic delicacies and take in some local entertainment. In the afternoon we will explore the dramatic fjords that make this area famous.

    Day 5 Grindavik and the Blue Lagoon
    Today we'll visit one of Iceland's most popular attractions, the Blue Lagoon. You'll be able to soak in the geothermally-heated seawater, rumoured to be good for both the body and soul. For those who don't crave the comforts of the spa, an optional round of golf is also available at the Continental Drift Club, where the American and Eurasian plates meet.

    Day 6 Heimay and Surtsey Islands
    Lying off the southern coast of Iceland, these islands are an example of the constant geological battle being waged underground. In 1973 a volcanic eruption destroyed many buildings on the islands and today a project dubbed the 'Pompeii of the North' aims to excavate those ruins. Not to be out-named, the entire archipelago has been called the 'Capri of the North' because of all the sea caves created by frequent volcanic activity. Sea birds, including puffins, call this place home.

    Day 7 Jokulsarlon and Hofn
    This morning we visit one of the most impressive wonders of Iceland: Vatnajokull Glacier. At over 300m (1,000 ft) tall, we can't appreciate the full scale of the ice until we get out on Jokulsarlon Lake and sail among the icebergs that frequently calve from the ice face. In the afternoon we arrive at Hofn, a small and traditional fishing community.

    Day 8 Seydisfjordur
    We'll call into Seydisfjordur, a small, friendly town with a thriving art scene. We can visit the power plant museum, shop for locally-produced handicrafts in the town, and join a tour conducted by the locals. The area also boasts over 90 archaeological sites, some dating back 1,000 years.

    Day 9-10 Husavik and Grimsey Island
    Husavik is an excellent example of the geological processes that have made Iceland famous. We will spend the day crossing through the highland lava desert, past lava formations, mud pools and sulfur pits en route to the impressive canyons and waterfalls that lie beyond. Returning back to town, we'll have a chance to wander around and visit the Whale and Exploration Museums before boarding the Ocean Nova. This area is the center of the whale-watching industry in Iceland, so we'll be on the lookout for whales as the ship pulls away from this pretty town. In the late afternoon, we should cross the Arctic Circle and reach Grimsey Island. The abundant bird life far outnumbers the fewer than one hundred residents of this small village.

    Day 11 Westfjords: Hornvik and Area
    Today we reach the very top of Iceland, as we venture north into the peaceful bay of Hornvik. Grand landscapes and exploration will be the order of the day, with a chance to stretch our legs and marvel at the geology and bird life that dominate the area.

    Day 12 Disembarkation in Akureyri
    On our last day, we arrive in Akureyri, where we board our charter flight back to Reykjavik.

    Day 8-13 Greenland's West Coast

You'll have time to wander the streets and see the Hans Egede Church and Hans Egede statue near the waterfront, named after the missionary who founded the settlement.
