Arctic Island Odyssey Cruise (29 Aug ’25)

16 Days

Svalbard, Greenland & Iceland, 15 nights from Oslo to Reykjavik on MS Fram

Overview

Setting out from Oslo to Greenland via Svalbard, explore the largest national park and the grandest fjord system on Earth. Discover epic scenery and captivating nature in true explorer style as our flexible route makes the best of the conditions.

From Svalbard to Greenland:
From Svalbard we’ll visit the Northeast Greenland National Park. This gigantic natural reserve of 375,000 square miles occupies the remote northeastern quarter of Greenland. In the absence of people, wildlife abounds and with some luck you might see iconic Arctic species like musk oxen and even polar bears.

From Greenland to Iceland:
Further south, Scoresby Sund is an immense system of fjords and glaciers fanning out over 24,000 square miles. Expect majestic fjord landscapes, historical ruins, abundant Arctic wildlife, and a potential visit to one of the most remote communities in the world before we sail to Iceland at the end of the voyage.
