Across rugged Northeast Greenland, a total solar eclipse will move southward on August 12, 2026. The magnificent and remote Blosseville Coast in East Greenland will be illuminated by the moon's shadow around 16:37 in the afternoon. The Ocean Albatros vessel, will be anchored along the coast precisely in the middle of the eclipse. Sheltered from the ocean, the calm landing beach will provide unobstructed view towards the western sky. Totality will last for 2 minutes and 17 seconds.

The rock-like columns of Hallgrímskirkja Church loom over the city of Reykjavik, a hip Scandinavian capital which needs little introduction. With new Nordic cuisine, excellent shopping, fantastic excursions and an easy relaxed vibe, Reykjavik is one of Scandinavia's most welcoming and exciting cities. Explore the city's world class (and often very quirky) museums, shop for snuggly local sweaters, or simply watch this bustling city in action on a cozy cafe terrace.
Ocean Albatros awaits embarkation in the city's bustling harbour, with comfortable staterooms ready to welcome you. After the mandatory safety briefings and lifeboat drill, Ocean Albatros will sail out of Reykjavík and chart a course for the wild east coast of Greenland.
