A voyage encompassing three Arctic countries with dramatic, contrasting and desolate landscapes.
This voyage combines the spectacular wildlife in Spitsbergen with the striking desolate landscapes of Eastern Greenland and the fascinating history of the Westman Islands. After several days in the Svalbard Archipelago, scouring the ice and glaciers for bears, walrus, foxes and birdlife, the ship crosses the Greenland Sea to explore the rugged coast of Greenland, with an excursion into Scoresbysund, the largest fjord complex in the world, and the birthplace of many icebergs. Finally, off the coast of Iceland, visit the extraordinary volcanic Westman Islands. Being above the Arctic Circle means 24 hour daylight so there is virtually unlimited time to relish in the experiences on this remarkable Arctic voyage.

What makes this trip responsible?
We take extremely seriously our responsibility to minimise our impact on these pristine areas. Exodus is an Associate Member of the International Association of Antarctica Tour Operators (IAATO) and has agreed to abide by one of the tourism world's most conscientious codes of conduct. Our ship operators in Spitsbergen are also members of the Association of Arctic Expedition Cruise Operators (AECO), which covers operations in Spitsbergen.
However, perhaps the single most important thing any polar travel company can do, is educate their clients to travel sensitively and compassionately. Our expedition team on each ship takes this part of their role very seriously, and looks forward to explaining how everyone can play their part.
