28 nights. August 2021. From £4499.00.

A rare opportunity to seek out both the awe-inspiring Aurora Borealis and eerie Midnight Sun on one cruise makes this very special Arctic adventure simply unmissable. You’ll head off the beaten track to remote Svalbard for the last chance to absorb the archipelago’s seasonal around-the-clock sunshine; and – if nature is on our side – you might be lucky enough to see the Northern Lights’ kaleidoscope colours tinting the night sky in Akureyri and Ísafjörður. There are hours of mesmerising scenic cruising too, with your Captain guiding you take in the unparalleled beauty of the most spellbinding routes in Norway, Iceland and Greenland. Pass the sharp-pointed peaks of the Seven Sisters Mountains; glide along the Tasermuit and Tunugdlliarfik fjords; and see, hear and marvel at the creaking glaciers of Prins Christiansund ranked by Fred. Olsen guests as our best scenic cruising experience. Out to sea, as you breathe in the Arctic’s cool air and revel in the tranquillity of ocean cruising, you’ll see the legendary North Cape and Jan Mayen Island’s 2277-metre-high glacier-adorned Beerenberg Volcano.  If all that wasn’t enough to create a picturebook of memories, your incredible 28-night itinerary is punctuated with time ashore in a string of destinations, many of which are out of reach to larger ships. You can tour to the majestic Qooroq Ice Fjord and see its magnificent glaciers on tour from Narsarsuaq, and delve into Nanortalik’s fascinating history; sample the finest, most flavoursome local seafood in Ísafjörður; and see the wild landscapes of Longyearbyen. Visiting Reykjavík leaves you perfectly placed to explore the Golden Circle, while Akureyri is the starting point for encountering diverse wildlife such as humpback whales, minke whales, white-beaked dolphins and porpoises.
