Day 2 Fair Isle & Lerwick

Fair Isle has a National Trust Bird Observatory.

Great skuas greet visitors seeking puffins, while a charming museum is devoted to island heritage.

Port details pending.

Day 4 Mykines, Faroe Islands

Port details pending.

Day 5 At Sea

Relax at sea today while enjoying informative lectures from your onboard naturalists.

Day 6 Reykjavik, Iceland

Reykjavik, which aptly means "steamy bay", a cosmopolitan capital city and as much a part of the Icelandic experience as the midnight sun or the fire and ice that creates the island's landscape. Entirely powered by geothermal energy harnessed from the Earth below, the city boasts air that is crisp, clean and pollution-free.

Day 7 Westman Islands

Here in the Westman Islands the world's youngest island was created in November of 1963. Later named Surtsey, it is a part of a group of volcanic islands well known for their sheer cliffs and huge Puffin populations. On the only inhabited island, Heimaey, an active volcano challenged its existence withan eruption in 1973. The town's firefighters were able to dam the flow before too much damage was done. The surrounding waters are known for whales and huge, echo-filled caves perfect for exploration.

Day 8 At Sea

Another day to enjoy the amenities of your ship, as well as attend numerous lectures on board from your naturalists and guides.

Day 9-10 Prince Christian Sound, Greenland

Today continue on the trail of the Vikings, making an expedition stop at Herjolfsnes, an important first landfall of the Norse upon reaching Greenland. A landscape of gothic peaks will surround you as you make your way sailing through towards Prince Christian Sound.

Day 11 Ivigtut, Greenland

Port details pending.

Day 12 Nuuk, Greenland

Nuuk is the oldest town in Greenland, but this world's smallest capital city is bustling in Greenlandic terms with 15,000 inhabitants. A short walk up from the harbour is 'the Brodtet' where the day's catch of seal, birds and fish is offered for sale. Have a chance to explore the Katuaq Cultural Centre and its collection of traditional kayaks (Greenlands best-known invention) and the Greenland National Museum where the famous 600-year old mummies from northern Greenland are housed.

Day 13 Kangerlussuaq & Sondrestomfjord

Make your journey down spectacular Sondre Stromfjord to Kangerlussuaq, where you will board a group charter flight (not included in cruise fare) to Toronto. If the day is clear, it is possible to see the largest ice cap in the world from your airplane window. From Toronto, connect to your return flights home.

Beyond expectations! Then again we weren't sure what to expect. Lovely stay at the lodge, met other like-minded travelers (many had their trips planned by Adventure Life) and the owner was a gracious hostess. It felt like you were one happy family, visiting with a favorite aunt.
