Join Zegrahm field director, Kevin Clement, on a Lapland expedition in Norway, a nation within a nation with a unique, semi-nomadic culture based on reindeer herding. Our Lapland tour is timed to coincide with excellent views of the fabled Northern Lights. Explore by boat, snowshoe, snowmobile, and even by dog sled, as we discover sheltered fjords surrounded by majestic mountain peaks, peaceful valleys, and sleepy fishing hamlets. Particular highlights of your Northern Lights expedition include stays in a hotel made entirely of ice and packed snow and in a traditional lavvu.
Discover the ethereal beauty of Iceland—element sculpted landscapes, mighty glaciers, and geothermal hotspots—while offshore, rock pinnacles serve as the seasonal home for thousands of nesting seabirds. Meet the citizens of colorful fishing villages; cruise by Zodiac beneath emerald hillsides laced with waterfalls; and walk among ruins that recall the heyday of Viking exploration. In the capital of Reykjavík explore the fabled Golden Circle—Thingvellir National Park; Gullfoss waterfall; and the Geysir Center.
Dramatic scenery, abundant wildlife, and charming villages are the hallmarks of Norway adventure travel. The long days of Arctic summer allow ample time for exploration of magnificent landscapes by ship, during expeditionary Zodiac cruises, and on foot. Meet the hearty residents of timeless fishing villages and towns steeped in the history of maritime trade and exploration. On our Svalbard tour, wildlife is plentiful and the focus of our time, as the area is home to a wealth of species—including polar bears. Norway & Svalbard Expedition Highlights:
