    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.

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

    HIGHLIGHTS: Ushuaia - Falkland Islands - South Georgia - Antarctic Peninsula - Drake Passage

    Day 1 Arrival day Ushuaia
    Nestled within the Tierra del Fuego archipelago, Ushuaia offers a surprising number of shops, museums, cafes and restaurants. Great Argentinean steak and seafood abound, as well as plenty of tasty chocolate to enjoy after you work up an appetite by exploring the nearby mountains or national park.

    Day 2 Embarkation day Ushuaia
    As we embark, the anticipation and excitement grows for what lies ahead. As every Antarctic adventure presents new opportunities and experiences, embarkation day is just as exciting for your Expedition Team as it is for you. They're onboard to ensure your comfort and safety, as well as to help make your wildlife dreams come true.

    Day 3 At Sea
    There are many activities to keep you engaged while we're at sea. You can take advantage of the library of books available on your ship, hang out at the bar chatting to other travellers or spend time out on deck, admiring the sea. Your Expedition Team will also conduct a series of presentations to familiarize you with how to prepare for Zodiac cruises and shore landings.

    Day 4-5 Falkland Islands (Islas Malvinas)
    The Falkland archipelago contains two main islands, East and West, which will be explored by Zodiac excursions and daily landings. These rugged islands have a frontier feel to them, especially at Port Stanley - the largest settlement on the islands. It's an interesting British outpost-type place, where you may just as easily wander into a pub as you will a church or museum. With your camera at hand, our wildlife sightings in the Falklands (Malvinas) should include at least four species of penguins and two endemic bird species - Cobb's wren and the Falkland's flightless steamer duck. Your team of lecturers and specialists will educate you on the local flora and fauna so that you have the most memorable time in the Falklands (Malvinas).

    Day 6-7 At Sea
    En route to South Georgia you'll cross the invisible biological boundary unique to Antarctica - the Antarctic Convergence. This meeting of oceans is what creates the abundance of krill and marine life that attracts large cetaceans such as humpback whales.

    Day 8-11 South Georgia
    Evidence of the old whaling and sealing heydays is still found throughout the island. You'll be surprised to learn that the whale and seal populations were once decimated here, as today their populations are strong, with massive rookeries to be seen. One significant and historic site that will be of interest is the grave of the great explorer, Sir Ernest Shackleton. His grave at the settlement of Grytviken, which is also home to an old whaling station and a research station, allow you to reflect on what it must have been like to be one of the first explorers to this unforgiving, yet beautiful environment. While South Georgia's history is an important attraction to the islands, it is the wildlife on South Georgia that you and your shipmates will likely find most captivating. Often referred to as the 'Galapagos of the Poles', South Georgia contains an exceptional quantity of wildlife. Each landing you make on South Georgia will open your eyes to a new wonder. One day you may see rookeries with a hundred thousand pairs of king penguins waddling on the beach. The next day we may visit another beach with thousands of fur or elephant seals. The grasses, mountains and beaches of South Georgia all play an important role in the breeding and survival of different bird and animal species. Your Expedition Team will be happy to share their knowledge of how these vulnerable relationships play out on the island.

    Day 12-13 At Sea
    Antarctica awaits, along with its own penguin and seal species. While you're at sea, you can enjoy some quiet time or take in presentations by the Expedition Team, which will cover everything from the history and geology of Antarctica to tips on identifying different species and what makes them each unique. With good weather conditions, a landing at the South Orkney Islands may mark your first official landing on Antarctica.

    Day 14-17 South Shetland Islands and Antarctic Peninsula
    The most common reaction to arriving at the white continent is a sense of reverence and awe. The experience is hard to put into words. You will discover that Antarctica is a land of extremes: at one moment you'll be overcome with a feeling of complete silence and loneliness, the next you'll be laughing at the comical antics of a curious penguin. Glacier hikes, visits to research bases and, of course, communing with the seals and penguins are sure to keep you smiling each and every day. Perhaps you'll catch sight of the fearless penguin-eater, the leopard seal, or come eye-to-eye with a curious minke whale while out on a Zodiac ride. Each day and each landing will present a new collection of creatures to entertain you and keep your camera busy. If you find yourself wanting more, then perhaps you'll treat yourself by booking our sea-kayaking adventure option (reserve in advance when booking your trip) or, if you're feeling a bit overwhelmed, a little shock therapy courtesy of a Polar plunge might be what you need.

    Day 18 The Antarctic Circle
    Crossing the Antarctic Circle is an impressive achievement, as most expeditions to the Peninsula do not come close to reaching this far south. With a toast to the first explorers who ventured here, you can raise a glass of champagne and take pride in knowing you've made it to a part of the world still visited by very few people. This is raw Antarctica, home to the midnight sun, with the potential for some fantastic iceberg sightings.

    Day 19-20 Northbound Along the Peninsula
    If you haven't had your fill of Antarctic wildlife and icebergs by now, you'll surely be satisfied by the time we return to the Drake Passage. You'll continue to journey onto land and out by Zodiac twice daily. Your expedition team will also be on the lookout for any species of penguins, seals and whales that may have eluded you on the journey south.

    Day 21-22 Crossing the Drake Passage
    After more than a dozen days of memorable wildlife encounters, your journey home begins. Crossing the Drake Passage is your unofficial rite of passage, putting a final stamp of approval on your Antarctic adventure.

    Day 23 Disembark in Ushuaia
    After breakfast aboard the ship, it is time to part ways and say goodbye to your Expedition Team and fellow travellers. We will transfer you to the airport for your homeward flight.

what are people saying about tours?

Having not travelled too much I wasn't sure if a tour would be be my cup of tea. Oh how I was wrong, we had an extremely packed 1 week on the west coast of USA and saw some amazing things including The Grand Canyon and Monument Valley, and the small group was filled with great people, very down to earth and loads of fun. Highly recommended!
