Polar Regions Arctic Cruise

Under the Northern Lights: Exploring Iceland & East Greenland

Scoresbysund, the world’s longest fjord system, beckons you to explore Greenland. Enticing you with some of the world’s best displays of the aurora borealis, or the northern lights, the Inuit settlement of Ittoqqortoormiit also offers a rare connection to the past, as they still live off the land as their ancestors did hundreds of years ago. Discover this home to the largest fjord system in the world, offering diverse and dramatically rugged landscapes rich in iconic arctic wildlife. Begin this 14-day Arctic adventure by cruising along Iceland’s mountainous Vestfjords, then move on to Greenland’s remote northeast coast. 

With the 176-guest World Explorer as your home base, explore two of the last unspoiled wilderness areas on the planet; featuring iceberg-choked fjords, tundra hikes and the Arctic wildlife of Greenland National Park, enjoying picture-perfect scenes every day. One of the most active expeditions, you can climb atop mountains and watch herds of grazing muskoxen on the horizon. This is pure wilderness, the untouched Arctic as it was thousands of years ago—and the best way to experience it is aboard a small ship.
