Add some extra exhilaration to your client’s voyage by adding on our sea kayaking¹ activity. This immersive activity allows expeditioners to glide through small hidden bays and coasts, see wildlife unobtrusively and become lifelong friends with their small group of like-minded adventurers.
We plan to explore the Westfjords region, featuring outstanding landscapes with jaw-dropping views of dramatic fjords carved by ancient glaciers, sheer table mountains that plunge into the sea and pristine North Atlantic vegetation. The region features picturesque towns such as Isafjordur, the famous Latrabjarg bird cliffs, waterfalls and spectacular fjords. A delight for bird-lovers, it is one of the best places in Iceland to photograph puffins.
Not many can say they have visited the spectacular landscapes of Jan Mayen. The huge 2,277-metre (7,470 foot) Beerenberg volcano is the northernmost active volcano in the world, and it last erupted in 1985. The northern part of the island is a great place to look for whales and dolphins and contains impressive glaciers, some of which reach the sea. Weather permitting, we hope to be able to land on the magnificent island and embark on an exploratory hike.
Phenomenal fjords, magnificent mountains ranges, and a polar desert rich in fossils, set the stage for heroic tales of early exploration. We visit towering cliffs noisy with nesting guillemots, and scree slopes that hold Svalbard’s largest little auk colonies. Most memorable will be encounters with the majestic polar bear on pack ice. Our Expedition Team will be on constant watch to spot these inspiring creatures.
