Atlantic Contrasts

Northern waters have amazing scenery - glaciers falling into the sea, geysers, volcanoes and fjords

Northern waters contain some of the world’s most amazing scenery – glaciers falling into the sea, geysers, volcanoes and fjords. 

Greenland’s south eastern coast is in places even more spectacular than the Alps, with mountains like the Dolomites and the vast expanse of the Greenland Ice Cap. Our three ports of call give us a taste of this great sparsely populated land.

Iceland is not just the land of ice and fire that many imagine – it is warmed by the gulf stream and has surprisingly mild weather in summer and early autumn. We walk where the European and American continents meet, creating a landscape with the appearance of a crevassed glacier. There are lakes, waterfalls and hot springs, as well as birdwatching opportunities. Elsewhere our walks take us to more remote areas unique to this country such as Akureyri and, new for 2014, Eskifjordur on the east coast.

One cruise calls into Runavik in the Faroe Islands from where we include a fine walk between remote villages walk with views across the sea to neighbouring islands. We also sample Norway’s beautiful coast, fjords and mountains, as well as the lovely city of Bergen.

Please do check the individual itineraries for your chosen date as the UK departure ports and individual ports of call on each cruise vary!
