Join Black Watch for an unrivalled adventure to the remote regions of
Greenland, Iceland and Norway in search of stunning natural wonders. You’ll
have the chance to sail amongst icebergs, go whale watching, and uncover
the dramatic scenery of eastern Greenland. Some of the most iconic Arctic
attractions will be within reach, from the impressive Briksdal and Kjenndalen
glaciers to the spectacular sites on the famous Golden Circle route.
First you’ll journey to Iceland and the stunning capital,
Reykjavík. It’s the perfect base from which to explore
some of the country’s greatest natural wonders,
including those found on the famous Golden Circle
tourist route. The main sites are known as the ‘Big
Three’: Gullfoss – the ‘Golden Waterfall’, the Geysir
area and Thingvellir National Park. Alternatively, you
can visit the spectacular Blue Lagoon Geothermal
Spa to bathe in mineral-rich waters.
You’ll then head to eastern Greenland and the tiny
town of Tasiilaq. Set within a stunning fjord,
surrounded by mountains and icebergs, it’s one of
the country’s most beautiful places. Wander through
the town centre and you’ll find colourful, traditional
houses complementing the backdrop. There’s also
the option of a walking tour to the majestic Flower
Valley, where you can admire the impressive Kiattut
Glacier and breathtaking landscapes speckled with
Arctic flora including the national flower, the broadleafed
Returning to Iceland, your next destination is Akureyri.
It’s ideal for discovering the nearby wonders of
Godafoss, ‘Waterfall of the Gods’, and Lake Mývatn.
Opt for an incredible whale watching tour and you’ll
have the opportunity to see friendly giants in their
natural environment: look out for Humpback and
Minke whales, as well as dolphins and porpoises. Your
day will end with a scenic sailing along Eyjafjörður –
Iceland’s longest fjord – past the island of Hrísey.
On the following morning Black Watch will cruise
along Reyðarfjörður en route to the distant town of
Eskifjörður for an authentic snapshot of traditional
Icelandic urban life. The town faces magnificent
Mount Hólmatindur, considered by locals as one of
the most beautiful mountains in the area.
Next enjoy a taste of the spectacular scenery that
Norway is rightly renowned for. Visit Ålesund for the
opportunity to discover Art-Nouveau architecture
and incredible views from Mount Aksla, before
arriving at your final port of call, Olden. This
charming fjord village gives access to the astonishing
Kjenndalen and Briksdal glaciers. You’ll depart via the
enchanting Nordfjord – flanked by sloping green
mountainsides – before sailing back to the UK.
