Arctic, Iceland, Greenland & Norway
Greenland & Norway
Uncover a simply magical region as you sail through the Arctic.
You’ll reach unexplored, unspoilt parts of the world most can
only fantasise about, some of which are barely accessible –
unless you’re on a cruise. Taking in a multitude of breathtaking
wonders along the way, you’ll want the journey to never end.
A plethora of attractions appear in northern Norway: including the sensational
Midnight Sun; the ‘top of the world’, the North Cape; unmissable husky sledding and
snowmobiling adventures; and of course the sensational Aurora Borealis. In 2019, there
are two cruises that seek out the inspirational Northern Lights, packing in plenty of
highlights in just eight nights.
Blend northern Norway with Arctic Russia on board Braemar in June 2018. Enjoy
spellbinding scenery and fascinating history in equal measure, with a maiden call into
off-the-beaten-track Kirkenes in the mix, along with the opportunity to hear stories
from the Soviet Union during WWII.
Choose either of the all-encompassing ‘Fjords of Greenland’ expeditions and memories
of giant glistening icebergs, expansive landscapes and gloriously isolated towns are sure
to remain with you forever. Meanwhile, remote Spitsbergen is home to the remains of
abandoned mining communities – eerie reminders of the area’s industrial heritage –
and jaw-dropping scenery such as Tempelfjorden, rated as the best destination in
Norway by Fred. Olsen guests.
All the delights of Iceland could be yours to savour too. You’ll find a variety of sailings
featuring this fascinating country on the following pages. Call into warm-hearted towns
nestled next to labyrinthine fjords; marvel at the effortless beauty of steep mountains
and gushing waterfalls; watch the forces of the earth explode into life on the iconic
Golden Circle route; party in vibrant Reykjavík; or go in search of elusive wildlife.
