2023 Under the Northern Lights

VESTFJORDS Rich in Viking history, Iceland’s oldest region is renowned for its dramatic and diverse landscape. The rugged coast of this almost entirely untouched, remote peninsula is indented by a myriad of steep fjords, each a world of its own, with awe inspiring mountain vistas, great hiking opportunities and serene seascapes. East Greenland BLOMSTERBUGTEN Known as the Bay of Flowers, Blomsterbugten boasts a colorful and lush landscape that is quite different from other Arctic regions. Expect spectacular fall colors, with a possible hike to Noa Lake. BOTANIKERBUGT In King Oscar Fjord, this bay is home to a variety of flora. It is on the south

coast of mountainous Ymer Ø (Ymer Island), part of Northeast Greenland National Park. C. HOFMANN HALVØ This peninsula can be a great location for viewing muskoxen. It is also home to wheatears and snow buntings, and you may spot rock ptarmigans or great northern divers (common loon) while exploring the shore. DENMARK ISLAND Encounter stunning icebergs at Denmark Island, which offers stupendous views of Scoresby Sund and Fønfjord below. If conditions allow for a landing, take a short hike to a well-preserved archaeological site.

EXPEDITION SPIRIT Embracing the unexpected is part of the legacy—and excitement—of expedition travel. When traveling in extremely remote regions, your Expedition Team must consider the sea, the ice and the weather to guide the route and itinerary details. This itinerary is a tentative outline of what you’ll experience on this voyage; please be aware that no specific itinerary can be guaranteed. By the same token, wildlife encounters as described are expected, but not guaranteed. Your Expedition Team will use their considerable experience to seek out wildlife in known habitats, but the presence of any particular species of bird or marine wildlife is not a guarantee.
