Arctic, Iceland, Greenland & Norway

WorldWide Cruises 2017-18

Arctic, Iceland, Greenland & Norway Nothing feels more like other-worldly exploration than this. Enter a magical region as you journey through the astonishing Arctic; the abundance of breathtaking scenery will mean you’ll never want to leave. Natural phenomena abound in northern Norway – the spellbinding Northern Lights, the sensational Midnight Sun and the ‘top of the world’, the North Cape – with opportunities to go husky sledding and snowmobiling through the magical winter landscapes too. In Spitsbergen, abandoned mining communities are eerie reminders of the area’s industrial heritage; and treasure jaw-dropping scenery such as Tempelfjorden, rated as the best destination in Norway by Fred. Olsen guests. There’s seemingly no end to the wonders of Iceland: warm-hearted towns perch comfortably next to twisting fjords; steep mountains and cascading waterfalls exhibit effortless beauty; the forces of the earth explode into fascinating life in the ‘Golden Circle’ near to the capital, Reykjavík; and curious wildlife may well come out to play. 2017/18 also sees an unprecedented number of chances to tick one of the world’s most elusive destinations – Greenland – off your list. Home to giant blue icebergs, remote glacier fields, snow-tipped peaks, untouched fjordland and curious settlements gloriously isolated from civilisation, there’s no better way to experience it all than on a cruise. The much-photographed Gásadalur (Goose Valley) is just one of a multitude of delights on the hard-to-reach Faroe Islands. These make a welcome appearance during Black Watch’s epic 27-night ‘Exploring the Fjords of the Arctic’ voyage – the undoubted pinnacle of 2017/18 cruises to this region – and the 14-night ‘Wonders of Iceland’ sailing, which encounters rugged Scottish islands too. Expanding on the existing ingredients of our Arctic adventures, the following pages feature a new programme of incredible itineraries that pack in more scenic highlights than ever before.
