Expedition Highlights

  • Photograph dramatic landscapes, including chiseled fjords, glittering glaciers, and lush tundra blazing with purple saxifrage and moss campion.
  • Discover hundreds of thousands of breeding seabirds, including kittiwakes, guillemots, dovekies, puffins, and rare ivory gulls.
  • Explore by Zodiac, kayak, and on foot to fully appreciate the varied landscapes of this wild, nearly uninhabited realm.
  • Enjoy opportunities for extended exploration during the long summer days of nearly continuous daylight.

The recently refurbished 120-guest Ocean Adventurer is a superb oceangoing vessel equipped with stabilizers and an ice-strengthened hull that allow her to navigate easily in the most rugged natural environments. A fleet of Zodiac landing craft allows us to explore at a moment’s notice. Each stateroom has an ocean view, an in-room music system, and en suite bathroom.
