Help Me Plan My Trip
The majority of ships that visit Iceland are ice-strengthened expedition & research vessels, meaning that generally they are not known for their luxurious accommodations, however you will be comfortable and you can count on a fantastic experience. In fact, living aboard an ice-breaker is a pretty unique experience in itself, which most people never get a chance to try. Each of our ships has been hand-selected for its itineraries, comfortable atmosphere, & the friendly and knowledgeable crew & guides. On these cruises, you will navigate the Arctic waters defined by fjords, glaciers, & icebergs, and get a chance to learn about the rich lore and culture that has developed in this isolated and rugged part of the world. Most cruises also visit neighboring destinations like Norway's Svalbard archipelago & Greenland.
