On this 17-day expedition, you'll explore Greenland’s majestic fjords, starting from Reykjavík, where you’ll sail to picturesque Patreksfjörður before heading towards volcanic Jan Mayen, one of our planet’s most remote places. Continuing to stunning Svalbard, you'll visit some of Spitsbergen’s most remarkable fjords and witness awe-inspiring vistas, from the towering mountains of Hornsund to the lush, glacier-carved valleys of Isfjorden.
