From the unexplored White Sea to the majestic fjords of Norway, the Arctic Islands of Svalbard, Greenland and Iceland, to the epic Northwest Passage, a cruise to the Arctic is a rare opportunity to escape into the immensity of this vast wilderness. An ocean cruise with Scenic Eclipse to the remote Arctic regions and the Norwegian Fjords will open your eyes to a new world of wonder that will create memories of a lifetime.
“The Arctic and the Fjords of Norway are regions of extremes: extreme landscapes, extreme seasonal changes, and extreme weather”, said Kara Weller, Head Expedition Leader, Scenic Eclipse. “They sit at the top of the world, ice bound for much of the year —a landscape seemingly made up of vast desert-like landscapes and huge jagged mountains. Yet, at the same time teeming with wildlife – from the myriad of bird life, to the best polar bear viewing in the world, down to the tiniest, most delicate of insects – all surviving in these harsh conditions. This is what makes the Arctic region so fascinating.”
Scenic Eclipse offers a number of itineraries that allow our guests to discover the mysteries and magic of Greenland. Be among the privileged few to visit the world’s largest island whose frozen coastline has witnessed the birth of some of nature’s most breathtaking creations in the form of massive ice calving’s.
“Greenland is the most incredible combination of native culture set against a beautiful landscape,” said Ms Weller. “Colourful little villages rich with culture nestled at the foot of huge jagged mountains. In certain locations, you will come across vast quantities of ice and massive icebergs, which are impressive even for me as someone who has spent so much time in Antarctica.”
