This voyage is the perfect chance to experience the Arctic region's early summer splendour. You can look forward to magnificent scenery on some of the northernmost islands of the planet. After embarking at Reykjavik onboard Albatros Expeditions’ modern vessel, the Ocean Albatros, we begin our spectacular voyage towards the high Arctic as we depart from Iceland’s volcanic wonderland. Along our way, we have planned landings at an incredible three Arctic islands: Iceland (Grimsey), Jan Mayen, and Spitsbergen. Our first days will take us by the ragged cliffs of the Icelandic western and northern coasts, including planned visits at the famed “Iceland in miniature”, Snaefellness and the large fjord, Ísafjarðardjúp. From here, we hope to make a call on the enigmatic island of Jan Mayen before we make landfall at the glaciated islands of Svalbard. We travel in the early summer; which means the air is filled with migrating birds – and the sun never sets. When approaching Svalbard, we will scout for sea mammals and even seal-hunting polar bears on the pack ice. The spring and early summer allows us to enjoy the immense beauty of Svalbard on this high Arctic adventure voyage among whales, walruses and millions of sea birds.
There are few wilder, more magnificent and untouched places than the Arctic Islands of the North Atlantic! And few ships better suited than Ocean Albatros for such a voyage.
