Sailing from Spitsbergen to Greenland, follow the edge of the ice to the west in search of wildlife. Navigating to the south, you will explore this remote landscape not only by ship, but also on foot and by Zodiac. This trip highlights the contrast and change in the Arctic as you move south, and finally ends in Iceland, "the Land of Fire and Ice." An Inuit village, unique wildlife and remote destinations are just some of the highlights on this unforgettable journey through the Arctic.
