ARCTIC & GREENLAND
The "Roof of the World", the Arctic is where you will find spectacular fjords along the coast, ice flows and glaciers combined with an abundance of wildlife. Your choice of cruise ship to explore this region is huge, from the larger, more luxury style vessels to smaller expedition type ships complete with ice-hardened hulls. Voyage around the coast to Svalbard or the Russian city of Murmansk; explore the ice fields of Greenland's coast or even the Northwest Passage around the top of Canada.
When to Visit?
Cruises to the Arctic and Greenland typically set sail from June to August, when the weather is pleasant. Cruises continue to the Norwegian Coast during winter thanks to the Gulf Stream keeping the coast ice free, as long as passengers are prepared to brave colder weather and short daylight hours. An increasingly popular cruise is one which is dedicated to viewing the Aurora Borealis.
