LEG 4: arctic adventure
Ísafjörður – scoresby sund – reykjavik
Follow in the footsteps of both historic explorers who navigated sea ice in the North Atlantic and also modern-day scientists in the quest to limit changes to our vulnerable environment.
Join us for an unforgettable sailing adventure between Iceland and Greenland, two of the most stunning and remote destinations in the world. Experience the beauty and diversity of the Arctic landscape, from majestic fjords and glaciers to rugged mountains and tundra. Encounter wildlife such as whales, seals, polar bears and seabirds, and learn about the culture and history of the local people.
There is often remarkable refraction on the Greenland coast which means the mountains can be seen at a range of more than 60 miles. A word of warning – Greenland midges make the Scottish ones look amateurish. Fortunately they don’t like flying very far from the shore!
