Land Of The Ice Bears: An In-Depth Exploration Of Arctic Svalbard
11 Days | NG Explorer | 148 Guests
Applicable Departures: May 29; June 5; June 12; June 19, 2017
A high Arctic archipelago situated beyond Norway’s fjord-fretted coast, a mere 600 miles from the North Pole, Svalbard is a place of deep fjords, snowcapped mountains, and massive sheets of ice––glowing under the midnight sun during our season there. It’s a magnificent polar bear habitat that provides opportunities for thrilling up-close observations of polar bears and other Arctic wildlife. It’s Arctic nature in its purest form.
A Circumnavigation of Iceland
10 Days | NG Explorer | 148 Guests
Applicable Departures: July 11, 2017
Iceland’s geology in all its manifestations––glaciers, geysers, thundering waterfalls, immense cliffs, geothermal springs, boiling mud pots, and rock and lava-scapes of unearthly beauty––is world-class. It alone makes a circumnavigation a very compelling idea. And when you add in the other itinerary components––Iceland’s people, their unique cultural heritage and contemporary character, the island’s geography and birdlife––seeing it all in one 360º expedition is irresistible.
Exploring Greenland and the Canadian High Arctic
15 Days | NG Explorer | 148 Guests
Applicable Departures: July 23, 2017
Venture deep into the far northern reaches of the Arctic, on a quest for arctic wildlife and the magisterial scenery of the ice––occurring at an epic scale in Greenland. And to share the experience of explorers from ancient to modern, goaded by the desire to discover the Northwest Passage.
Epic 80°N: Exploring Greenland, Baffin & Ellesmere Islands
24 Days | NG Explorer | 148 Guests
Applicable Departures: August 3, 2017
Canada’s Ellesmere Island stretches farther north than any other land in the world, save for Greenland—explore both on this epic Arctic expedition. This is a region of ancient ice, where tidewater glaciers of exceptional beauty dominate the landscape. Few humans have ever been here. It is home to hunting polar bears, muskox, and extremely rare wildlife, including narwhal.
Hot Springs and Icebergs: Iceland to West Greenland
9 Days | NG Explorer | 148 Guests
Applicable Departures: August 22; August 26, 2017
Go by land, sea, and air to discover the thrilling nature of two geologically extraordinary countries! Start by exploring the cuisine and music of metropolitan Reykjavík, soak in Iceland’s thermal baths, and hike to its thunderous waterfalls. Travel to Greenland via charter air, and enjoy a stunning flight-see of the massive ice cap. In Greenland, embark ship to trace the ragged edge of the ice cap through fjords to archaeological sites while spotting whales along the way.
Norway's Fjords and Arctic Svalbard
17 Days | NG Orion | 102 Guests
Applicable Departures: May 16; May 29, 2017
Follow Norway’s fjord-carved coast, from the charming town of Bergen, past the North Cape to the ice and wildness of the Svalbard archipelago, for a perfect balance between the charmingly scenic and the spectacularly wild. Explore Tromso and Bear Island on the way to Svalbard in the high Arctic, where polar bears prowl and walruses haul out on rocky shores.
Nordic Passages: Shetlands, Orkney, Faroes, and Iceland
14 Days | NG Orion | 102 Guests
Applicable Departures: June 22; August 13, 2017
Sail beneath the midnight sun, over seas steeped in Norse mythology, and along the route of the boldest Vikings who ventured west. Meet the welcoming islanders who call the scenic Faroes home—Danes by nationality and Viking by blood. See the graves of their Viking ancestors and explore their tiny towns of turf-roofed homes. On Scotland’s outlying isles you’ll discover a 5,000-year-old village and see the mysterious standing stones of the Ring of Brodgar. And in the west, on a near circumnavigation of Iceland, see this geologically roiling land just as the Vikings must have, from thundering waterfalls and boiling springs, to islands so young the earth still steams.
