Ultimate Arctic Voyage: Svalbard, Jan Mayen & Iceland

Perfect for first-time visitors to the Arctic who are seeking lots of adventure, the 13-day Ultimate Arctic Voyage: From Svalbard to Jan Mayen to Iceland cruise highlights three spectacular destinations near the top of the world. This journey provides adventurous travelers with a taste of the incredible diversity of the Arctic, featuring wildlife, giant icebergs, towering mountains, historical sites, wide expanses of tundra and more.

Your adventure begins in the remote Norwegian island of Spitsbergen, renowned for its stunning scenery and abundant, varied wildlife such as polar bears and walrus. From there, sail south across the Greenland Sea to the mysterious, volcanic Jan Mayen, a nature reserve so remote that few have ever been fortunate enough to explore this Arctic treasure. Your epic adventure culminates with a journey under the midnight sun to Reykjavik, where you can soak up Icelandic culture in a city that never sleeps.

Highlights include searching for polar bears, walrus, reindeer and other iconic arctic wildlife; exploring Spitsbergen’s fjords, glaciers and icebergs; stopping at the remote volcanic island of Jan Mayen; and immersion in the Arctic with regular off-ship activities.

Aboard the technologically-advanced, 199-guest Ultramarine, take advantage of 20 quick-launching Zodiacs to create the quintessential Arctic experience. This modern, purpose-built polar expedition vessel comes equipped with specialized, cutting-edge safety features to provide added security in remote Arctic environments.
