Arctic World director in Greenland

Curriculum and experience

I grew up in Kulusuk. A small village in Eastside of Greenland(similar to any of other villages in Greenland) with population about only 300 people. I haven´t left my home village until I was 16 years old and I always come home in Christmas and in summer holidays.

My father took me seal hunting and fishing since I could barely walk. After a whole day of hunting, we go home. On our way home with our boat, I always look out the horizon and now I realize that I never bored because I look at the icebergs and mountains all around us and the movement of the sea, so natural.

When I finished with primary school(with good grades), I applied to secondary school – I got in. My grades at the secondary school could get me in the Greenlandic Tourism Academy in Qaqortoq(City in South Greenland). – education in academic level.

Anyway, I am now 21years old and I´ll finish my education in November of 2013. I can communicate completely in Greenlandic, English as well in Danish. I also recently started to learn Spanish. I have more than 4 years practical experience in tourism industry(service and guiding), mostly in my home village. I´ve been travelling a bit in my life.

I´ve been in Denmark countless times as well in Iceland, on holidays. I have been in Spain, travelling and meeting some friends in summertime, in Canary Islands, Madrid, watching football game in Santiago Bernabeu, visiting Andalucia(SouthSpain) and Barcelona.

Arctic World skipper in Greenland

Curriculum and experience

He is the chief of the local bank and supermarket and been working there for more than 28 years. He is 51 years old and he enjoys sailing with boat and sleddogging with tourists in East Greenland more than ever.

Like the other local people, he was born and raised in Kulusuk. When he was a child, he didn´t know a thing about internet or what was happening outside his own world, so did the rest local people. In his generation, a change has been made, a lot of change in society. He lived the old Greenlandic traditional way, then the way of living was slowly transformed into the European system which we know call for easier life, because of the technology and ability to connect to the rest of the world.

30 years ago, he began to sail with one-day tourists from Iceland. Icelandic company needed local to sail with the tourists. From that time, he slowly started to communicate with tourist first with sign language and then he learned to communicate in English without formal education.

He travelled in Denmark, Iceland as well in Spain for business reasons and holidays. But sailing with tourist in his home is his favorite of all.

Snowmobile expedition in mythical Northwest Passage to watch and photograph polar bears with an Inuit guide

400 Kilometers of snowmobile crossing through the key point of the legendary Northwest Passage in northern Canada. Guided by an experienced Inuit, who was born in an igloo, we will cross the frozen Barrow and Lancaster Straits. A frozen ice sea zone where pressure ridges and plains of ice follow one after other.

Departing from Resolute, base of many sports expeditions to the North Pole Geographic, our goal is to achieve the polynia, an area of sea that never freezes, located near Devon Island. This polynia is rich in wildlife where it is common to find seals and their natural predator, the polar bear, a marvel of adaptation to arctic climate and terrain.

On our route we will stop at Beechy Island, an archaeological site where the remains of ill-fated expedition of Sir John Franklin, the source of much of the American High Arctic exploration. After observing and photographing extensively polar bears and other Arctic wildlife we will head to Cape Sherard, the entry point of the Northwest Passage, where it is easy to find muskoxen.

We will return to Resolute along the coast of Somerset Island through spectacular gorges and cutting rock canyons. Before arriving in Resolute we will visit the Canadian Military Survival School, where the Canadian Air Force learns polar survival techniques taught by our Inuit guide. Right there we can build an igloo with our Inuit teacher and sleep in the snow shelter warmed by a traditional seal oil lamp.

Helicopter flight to the Geographic North Pole from a Russian base on the ice

Achieving the mythical 90° North in a comfortable and safe way. This is a unique trip into the northern end of the planet that will allow us to perform a unique experience: to reach the Geographic North Pole. The only place on Earth where every direction is South.

Peary, Herbert, Uemura, and other mythical explorers have had to travel more than 800 km of sea ice before reaching the North Pole. What we propose is to reach this mythical point by helicopter in a comfortable and safe way. There we will discover the Arctic Ocean, a frozen sea whose landscape is dotted with pressure ridges, open water channels, ice floes, etc.

Our starting point will not be a motionless northern land, but the temporary Russian station "Borneo" located on an ice floe adrift in the middle of the Arctic Ocean at 89 degrees north latitude. And our goal will not be a very common place, but the uninhabited Geographic North Pole, the point where joint all Earth meridians.

TRAVEL PROGRAM

Day 1
- Flight home to Oslo (Norway).
- Overnight at hotel.

Day 2
- Flight Oslo - Longyearbyen (Svalbard Archipelago).
- Extra day of margin just in case of delays of flights, baggage lost, airport strikes, etc. during the previous flights.

Approximate flight time about 2 hours and a half. Nights in a heated tent at the drifting base. At the first favourable weather and ice conditions, flight by helicopter to the Geographic North Pole. Flight time is approximately 40 minutes.
- Depending on the weather, we will stay at the North Pole about 1 hour to take pictures and make "world tour" through each of the terrestrial meridians that converge at 90º North. Then fly back to Borneo drifting base.
- During our stay in Barneo we will have the opportunity to witness the life in a drifting Russian polar base and meet with renowned polar explorers. We may also make short trips around the base to get a better idea of the Arctic Ocean, a frozen sea full of open water channels and huge pressure ridges.


Day 5
On the afternoon of the second day of our stay in Barneo, we will fly back to Longyearbyen on a plane AN-74.

TRAVEL RESUME
An ideal trip in complete safety to enter for the first time in the Arctic.
This trip is ideal for anyone, no matter her or his age or physical condition, to discover the winter Arctic in all its fullness. Six days full of nature, adventure, magic and... luck!
... Or at least, it is what think Japanese people. According to them, the person who watch an Aurora Borealis will be lucky all her or his life. Whereas, Lappishs people believe that the "Northern Lights" is the trail left by a fox that crosses the sky with its tail on fire.

TRAVEL RESUME
Journey in a traditional way guided by Inuit hunters in northern Greenland
A 300 Kilometres  journey by dogsled in the remote region of Thule reaching Siorapaluk, the most northerly village in the world inhabited naturally. A trip through chaotic ice, sea ice, glaciers, fjords, icebergs. Visit picturesque Inuit villages whose inhabitants still retain many of their ancestral customs and lifestyle.
Accompanied by Inuit hunters born in this region, the crossing by dogsled will pass over zones of frozen sea ice, where hundreds of icebergs, that flow freely in summer, now are still trapped by the frozen sea. The whole route runs along a abrupt coastline of rugged mountains and glacier tongues that follows one another without end, and where the chaotic of the frozen sea consists a landscape of spectacular beauty.

Throughout the route, the Inuit will go hunting seals and walruses to feed the dogs. These magnificent hunters are descendants of the Eskimos who helped Peary in the early twentieth century to conquer the Geographic North Pole and are considered the best travelers in polar history.

A journey where you can recall how was the life of ancient Inuit, that on the basics, has hardly changed. The trip represents a unique opportunity to experience the eternal Arctic of the turn of the century in which man alone with his dogs and his skills as a hunter might face the most hostile nature in their daily live.

TRAVEL RESUME
The place on Earth most similar to the Moon
When Neil Armstrong, the first man who set foot on the Moon, left the Eagle lunar module, the landscape appeared before his eyes had have been familiar. Not in vain the crew of the Apollo XI spacecraft were training in Iceland for his uncanny resemblance to the lunar surface. There is no place on earth where the powerful forces of nature are more present than here: volcanoes, geysers, lava deserts, waterfalls, glaciers, hot springs, craters and cliffs cohabit with surprising harmony.
From the hand of Jose Naranjo, a polar explorer with a spectacular sports career in the cold regions of the planet, we will cross part of this amazing island located in mid-Atlantic ocean. In Iceland, even the most seasoned traveler will not cease to be amazed at every turn. Swimming in a geothermal lake, being in the great Atlantic fault that separates Europe from America, being closer to Gullfoss an impressive double waterfall, seeing a lagoon inundated of icebergs where was filmed a spectacular sequence of 007 agent film or feeling the force of a geyser in the country that gave name to all geysers in the world, no doubt that will leave their mark on the visitor.

Iceland, also invited to perform many activities that make you feel its incomparable nature even closer if possible. Walk by Europe's largest glacier, the Vanatjokull, riding astride an Icelandic pony with a view of a volcano, doing a thrilling snowmobile route on a glacier or sailing in an amphibious vehicle to see the nesting cliffs of the world's largest seabird colonies, will allow us to forget that there is another world outside their borders.

Iceland, the country of the Sagas. 1,100 years of stories of battles, love and revenge is happening since the Vikings colonized these barren lands. In an island of contrasts is not surprising to know that despite being the last country in Europe to be populated, has the oldest parliament in the continent.

And the magic of the country also does not breathe at night in winter, and the sky is covered with Northern Lights. The scientists consider them the most impressive light phenomenom of nature. So when one watches them, one wonders if it was one of these "Northern Lights" which prompted Leifur Eiriksson to reach the shores of America 500 years before Columbus...

TRAVEL PROGRAM
Day 1
Flight to Keflavik, Iceland's international airport, located in the extreme southwest of the island about 50 kilometers from Reykjavik, the capital of the country. Travel by road from the Reykjanes peninsula. In this region are some of the most interesting geological wonders of the world. An area where earthquakes, volcanoes, glaciers and the two tectonic plates of European and American continents have shaped a landscape of breathtaking beauty. Here we will go over the bridge that crosses between these two plates and we will get one foot in Europe and one in America...

Transfer to the Blue Lagoon geothermal complex where we can take a dip in the middle of a large lava field feeling the water vapors from the center of the earth. A relaxed atmosphere will certainly help us to forget the fatigue of the flight. Then we will travel to Reykjavik. Accommodation at one of the best hotels in the capital of Iceland. Explanation of the travel program. Welcome dinner and overnight in hotel.

Day 2
After breakfast we will go by bus to the named Golden Circle. There we will tour the Pingvellir National Park, where was located the first European parliament, and also the magnificent valley that lies at the foot of the Atlantic fault that separates the European continental shelf from the American one. In our route we will visit Gullfoss, the most spectacular waterfall in Iceland of 30 meters high that rushes spectacularly in a double dip by a major fault.

After lunch at a local restaurant overlooking the famous waterfall we will visit Geyser, the place that gave its name to all hot springs in the world that flow in a stream. There we will see the steaming Strokkur geysers throwing water column over 30 meters high every 5 or 10 minutes.

Our next point will be Eldhestar farm. There, equipped with helmet and boots we will make an easy ride through meadows and lava fields on the back of the powerful Icelandic ponies that weigh up to 400 kilograms. We will go through several farms that will give us an idea about how is the traditional life in Iceland. Now back to Reykjavik we will climb the crater of an extinct volcano, but whose colors are of beautiful desolation. Upon arrival in the Icelandic capital we will have dinner in one of the typical restaurants of downtown where we will taste the delicious Icelandic lobster. Night at the hotel.

Day 3
Travel by bus to Cape Dyrholaey, a cliff that forms the southernmost tip of Iceland. From there you can appreciate the great natural arc of 120 meters high that erosion has formed on basalt rock. In this area of spectacular black sand beaches we will see the Reynisdrangar needles protruding tens of meters above sea level. According to a legend they were formed when 2 goblins tried to drag to land a three-masted ship in the middle of the night, but when the day dawned became rocks.

On our way to such a cape we will pass through the vast plains formed by glacial rivers. A fertile terrain where small villages and isolated farms are in front of the Hekla, the most active volcano in Iceland. Optionally, and if the sea conditions permitting, when we will reach the beautiful village of Vik, we will take a trip on an amphibious vehicle to see from the sea the cliffs where nesting one of the largest colonies in the world. Then we will pass near the glaciar sands of Myrdalssandur and the vast lava fields of Eldhraun to reach the Skftafell National Park at the foot of the great glacier of Vatnajökull where we will stay at the Skaftafell hotel. Dinner and overnight at hotel.

Day 4
After breakfast at the hotel, we will make a easy guided tour in the Vatnajökull, the largest glacier in Europe. Equipped with safety equipment such as crampons and ice axes, we will go into this huge glacier of 8,400 square kilometers in which would fit all the glaciers in Europe together. Its territory covers an area similar to a third of Holland.

After lunch at the hotel, we will go by bus to the Jokulsarlon glacier lagoon where giant icebergs float  stacked with tints almost surreal. A magical place like no other where they filmed the dramatic pursuit of a James Bond movie, the famous 007 agent. Depending on the time of the year, we will navigate the calm waters of the lake with an amphibious vehicle.

Back at the hotel, Jose Naranjo will give a audiovisual lecture entitled "Transgreenland, the faster polar journey in history" in which he along with another companion crossed the Greenland icecap in a sled pulled by giant kites. Dinner and overnight at Skaftafell hotel.

Day 5
After breakfast, we will go by bus to the Myrdalsjokull glacier where we will take a guided snowmobile tour through a silent white world. On our way  we will see the famous volcano Katla beneath the glacier. This is one of the most active volcanoes in Iceland where the last major eruption occurred in 1918, although it is waiting to explode again in the coming years. Alpine meal in a mountain refuge on the glacier. After oun exciting snowmobile tour we will continue our journey to reach Skogar where we will stay at the hotel of the same name as the town. Dinner at the restaurant.

Day 6
After breakfast we will visit the traditional and Ethnographic Museum of Skogar, one of the best in Iceland with more than 6,000 objects on traditional life in Iceland, as well as different types of typical Icelandic homes from ancient times until today. We will continue our journey to the great Skogafoss waterfall with a drop of over 60 meters high, according to the legend under the waterfall is hidden the golden heart of Prasi, one of the ancient inhabitants of this region. On sunny days we can see a spectacular rainbow on the waterfall.

Lunch at the restaurant of the Ranga hotel in the small town of Hvolsvollur, at the foot of the Hekla volcano. Arrival in Reykjavik, accommodation in hotel and free time to visit the beautiful capital of Iceland, Reykjavik, shopping, etc. In the evening farewell dinner party at the Viking restaurant of Fjorukrain.

TRAVEL RESUME
The only hotel in the world on a frozen sea
Trip by snowmobile through the legendary Northwest Passage in Canada to watch and photograph polar bears with Inuit guides. Using as a base a hotel built specifically for this trip on the frozen sea, we will travel by snowmobile in the key point of the mythical Northwest Passage. Guided by experienced Inuit, some of whom were born in igloos, we will cross the frozen Barrow and Lancaster straits. A frozen ice sea area where pressure ridges and plains of ice mix.
Departing from Resolute, base of many of the sports expeditions to the Geographic North Pole, our goal is to reach a polynia, an area of sea that never freezes, located near Devon Island. Esta polynia es un lugar rico en fauna donde es habitual encontrar focas y su depredador natural el oso polar, una maravilla de adaptación al clima y terreno ártico. This polynia is rich in wildlife where it is common to find seals and their natural predator, the polar bear, a marvel of adaptation to the Arctic climate and terrain.

On our route we will stop at Beechy Island, an archaeological site where the remains of ill-fated expedition of Sir John Franklin, was the source of much of the American High Arctic exploration.

After watching and photographing polar bears and other wildlife we will visit The Canadian Military Arctic Survival School, where the Canadian Air Force learns polar survival techniques taught by our Inuit guides. Allí mismo construiremos iglús con nuestros maestros esquimales. Right there with our Inuit teachers we will build igloos. Those ones who want will be able to sleep in this snow shelter warmed by a traditional seal oil lamp.

To end our expedition we will return to Resolute in the most versatile aircraft in aviation, a ski-equipped Twin Otter. During the flight from the air we will see the spectacular frozen sceneries of one of the most remote and inaccessible places of the planet.
TRAVEL PROGRAM
Day 1
Flight to Ottawa. Overnight at hotel.

Day 2
Flight Ottawa - Resolute. Overnight at hotel.

Day 3
Flight in a 15 seat plane equipped with skis wich will land on the ice sea of the Northwest Passage, right in the Lancaster Strait. In this place will be situated our expedition hotel composed of a large dining room, conference room, spacious and comfortable bedrooms equipped with heating, bed, bathroom, tables, carpeting and other amenities unimaginable in a frozen sea.

There also will be the snowmobiles that we will drive for the photo safaris. Night in heated bedrooms.

Days 4 to 7
After breakfast, we go snowmobiling along the south coast of Devon Island until the nearby polynia. There we will look for polar bears with the help of our Inuit guides. It is time to photograph and watch them closely.

In our route along Devon Island is possible to find one of the most elusive animals in the Arctic: the musk ox. Also we will go into other remote locations such as the Wellington Channel, located between the Devon and Cornwallis Islands or the spectacular Rodstock bay with its dramatic cliffs at the entrance. Night in heated bedrooms.

Day 8
Flight back to Resolute Bay by plane via Barrow Strait. From the air we will see the coast of Devon and Cornwallis islands which are full of spectacular ravines and sharp rock canyons.

During our return we will do a short stop at Beechy Island, in the same place where wintered the expedition of Sir John Franklin over 150 years ago.

Then we will visit The Canadian Military Survival School, where the Canadian Air Force learns polar survival techniques taught by our Inuit guides. Right there we can build an igloo with our Inuit teachers, and those who want can sleep in the snow shelter warmed by a traditional seal oil lamp.

In Resolute, we will have time to quietly visit this small, isolated village of 200 inhabitants. Overnight at hotel.

TRAVEL RESUME
Ski crossing of the last degree of latitude from a base in the Antarctic continent.
The desire to be one of the few members of mankind to reach the Geographic South Pole remains as strong today as it was for Amundsen and Scott a century ago, when whole nations put every effort to achieve that long-awaited spot. With less conquering eagerness, but with the same spirit of adventure and pursuit of the unknown, our expedition will ski the last degree of latitude to the legendary 90º South.
This journey through the largest cold desert plateau of the world will take place at an altitude of 3,000 meters above sea level. We will travel on skis he 100 kilometer journey without the support of vehicles  on the middle of the Antarctica polar ice cap: a true sea of ice and glacial snow that reaches a thickness of 3 kilometers.

Our starting point will be Patriot Hills, a base camp used by both the expeditions to the South Pole and Mount Vinson, the highest peak in Antarctica. After several unforgetable ski days, through one of the most inhospitable and virgin place of the world, we will reach that magic point where all terrestrial meridians join. There we will find the scientific base Amundsen-Scott, named in memory of those two brave polar explorers that a century ago set foot upon this desired point for the first time.
TRAVEL PROGRAM
Day 1
Flight to Santiago de Chile and Punta Arenas.

Day 2
Arrival in Punta Arenas. Overnight at hotel.

Day 3
Preparation and checking of all equipment and gear for the expedition. Overnight at hotel.

Day 4
As soon as the weather is suitable we will take the plane for our southern flight to Patriot Hill through the Antarctic Peninsula. The flight time from Punta Arenas to Patriot Hills is approximately 6 hours depending on the winds.

Day 5
In the morning if weather conditions permit we will fly in a plane equipped with skis to the 89º South latitude, the starting point of the expedition. Overnight in tent in the middle of the glacier plateau.

Days 6 to 16
Crossing on skis through the Antarctic glacier plateau. On our first day of skiing hauling our sleds we will notice a lot the altitude in our breath. But after a couple of days we'll be perfectly acclimatized. At the beginning of the journey we will move through a terrain of sastrugis (accumulations of snow due to wind. They did to suffer a lot Scott and Amundsen in their expeditions to the South Pole), but as we go along the terrain gradually become less steep and the snow surface a bit smoother.

Some of these sastrugis can reach 2 or 3 meters high and therefore difficult to overcome. We will try to go winding through them, avoiding the sleds go constantly dumping or getting stuck. In this area could have monstrous cracks, true depths in the middle of this white desert. However it is not necessary to go roped as the pressure of our weight on the snow that covers the cracks is minuscule.

Day 17
From a distance of 25 kilometeres we will see the researching base Amundsen-Scott located in the very South Pole, where we will take the final steps to our goal: The Geographic South Pole, the southernmost point on the planet. Once in our destination we will walk around the post marking the most southern place on Earth. Under our feet we will have 360 lines of longitude, circling the globe. Overnight in tent.

Day 18
The end of this incredible trip will be tje return to Patriot Hills in a plane equipped with skis. Overnight in tent.

TRAVEL RESUME
Alpine skiing at the Arctic Circle
Alpine skiing in the best resort of Lapland (Finland), home of the Ski World Cup 2004 and 2006. Few know that at 170 kilometers north of the Arctic Circle is a lonely mountain called Levi. From its summit, you can see what may be the best view in Finnish Lapland: a vast snowy plain dotted with frozen lakes and boreal forest that are lost on the horizon. And in this isolated mountain are the Levi ski resort.
When you climb to the top of Levi in a next-generation cable-car, you begin to guess why they held on these slopes the Ski World Cup 2004. But when you go down the Supergiant slope, with all Lapland at our feet, one is awed by the majestic beauty of this land. So, in 2006 Ski World Cup repeated in Levi. Why is that?

Is it, perhaps for its premium quality powder snow? or Is it because its 47 varied ski tracks, with a maximum length of 2,500 meters, ranging from beginner's tracks to a Superpipe, through playground, until the 52% gradient tracks for experts? Or maybe by its 26 lifts with capacity for 25,000 people per hour to avoid tedious queues. Or maybe it's because the inhabitants of this place are people really hospitable...

But not only is skiing without crowds that Levi offers. In the ancestral land of the Saami many ideas arise after a frantic day on the slopes. Dinners in a typical Lappish "kota", live concerts, spectacular snowmobile trips, bath in a spa resort, husky dogsledding, sauna in the country that invented it, relaxing reindeer sleigh rides. And all with the magical backdrop of the Northern Lights...
TRAVEL PROGRAM
Day 1
Flight to Kittila via Helsinki. Bus transfer from the airport to the Levi ski resort of Levi (15 minutes), where we stay in a cozy spa hotel, cottage, hotel or apartment with kitchen. Dinner at your own.

Days 2 to 5

TRAVEL RESUME
Easy walking tour in the Greenland icecap

There is no better way to know this unfathomable territory than doing a simple route, overnight in a tent on the second largest ice mass on the planet, away from any concern, in complete silence, broken only occasionally by the roar of icebergs smashing in the distance.

Our route will start at the exact point where do the great polar expedition when crossing Greenland from east to west. Here, we will learn first hand, in complete security and without having to be an elite athlete, what feel and live those seasoned adventurers when go deep into the infinitely white.

 

During the trip we will have the opportunity to see from above, a bird's eye view, the giant icebergs drifting across the North Atlantic. In fact, our path starts from a place dubbed the Blue Diamont Bay where the beautiful deep blue icebergs dot the bay and where it is also easy to see seals.

Even we can see with our own eyes the marks of thawing, such as rivers and waterfalls, glaciers, and the remnants of ancient ice. Incluso podremos ver una “nueva” isla que apareció al retirarse el hielo del casquete polar debido al calentamiento global del planeta. We will can see a "new" island that appeared when the polar icecap withdrew due to global warming. Here, better than anywhere else, can appreciate the terrible effects of climate change.

Greenland has more than two million square kilometers, of which 90% is eternal ice, so who somehow has not been in the polar icecap, does not know Greenland does...

TRAVEL RESUME
The place on Earth most similar to the Moon
When Neil Armstrong, the first man who set foot on the Moon, left the Eagle lunar module, the landscape appeared before his eyes had have been familiar. Not in vain the crew of the Apollo XI spacecraft were training in Iceland for his uncanny resemblance to the lunar surface. And feet on earth, when you get to Iceland, you ealize that there is no place on earth where the powerful forces of nature are more present than here: volcanoes, geysers, lava deserts, waterfalls, glaciers, hot springs, craters and cliffs cohabit with surprising harmony.
In the hand of a polar explorer with a spectacular sports career in the cold regions of the planet we will cross part of this amazing island locate in mid-Atlantic ocean. In Iceland, even the most seasoned traveler will not cease to be amazed at every turn. Swimming in a geothermal lake, being in the great Atlantic fault that separates Europe from America, being closer to Gullfoss an impressive double waterfall, seeing a lagoon inundated of icebergs where was filmed a spectacular sequence of 007 agent film or feeling the force of a geyser in the country that gave name to all geysers in the world, no doubt that will leave their mark on the visitor.

Besides admiring the nature, Iceland, also invites  to do many activities that make you feel its incomparable nature even closer, like sailing in an amphibious vehicle among the ice floes, visiting beaches like you have never imagined, as that one in which the Clint Eastwood's film "Flags of our fathers" was shot, or relaxing in tranquil hot springs where we will forget that there is another world outside its borders.

And the magic of the country also does not breathe at night when the sky is covered with Northern Lights. The scientists consider the most impressive light phenomenom of nature. So when one watches them, one wonders if it was one of these "Northern Lights" which prompted Leifur Eiriksson to reach the shores of America 500 years before Columbus...

TRAVEL RESUME
A voyage around Spitsbergen, the largest island of the Svalbard archipielago in Norway
Near the mouth of Liefdefjorden, we will go ashore for a walk on the tundra island of Andøya. Many common eider and Pink-footed Goose nest here, and the more rare King Eider may also be seen. Sailing into Liefdefjorden, we will cruise near the face of the impressive Monaco Glacier. The waters of the glacier front are a favourite feeding spot for thousands of Kittiwakes and occasionally Polar Bear are seen on the glacier.
TRAVEL PROGRAM

Day 1
- Flight from your country of residence - Oslo.
- Accommodation in a hotel or hostel.
- Lunch and dinner not included.

Day 2
Arrive in Longyearbyen, the administrative capital of the Spitsbergen archipelago of which West Spitsbergen is the largest island. Before embarking there is an opportunity to stroll around this former mining town, whose parish church and Polar Museum are well worth visiting. In the early evening the ship will sail out of Isfjorden.

Day 3
Heading north along the west coast, we arrive by morning in Krossfjorden, where we board the Zodiacs for a cruise along the sculpted front of the 14th of July Glacier. On the green slopes near the glacier, a colourful variety of flowers bloom, while large numbers of Kittiwake and Brünnich’s Guillemot nest on the nearby cliffs. There is also a good chance of spotting Arctic Fox, who patrol the base of the cliffs in case a chick falls from its nest, and Bearded Seal, who cruise this fjord. In the afternoon we sail to Ny Ålesund, the world’s most northerly settlement.
Once a mining village - served by the world’s most northerly railway, which can still be seen - Ny Ålesund is now a research centre. Close to the village is a breeding ground for Barnacle Goose, Pink-footed Goose and Arctic Tern. Visitors interested in the history of Arctic exploration will want to walk to the anchoring mast used by Amundsen and Nobile, in the airship Norge in 1926 and Nobile in the airship Italia in 1928, before their flights to the North Pole.
Day 4
Near the mouth of Liefdefjorden, we will go ashore for a walk on the tundra island of Andøya. Many common eider and Pink-footed Goose nest here, and the more rare King Eider may also be seen.

Days 5 and 6
We have our northernmost landing at Phippsøya, in the Seven Islands north of Nordaustlandet. Here we will be at 81 degrees north, just 540 miles from the geographic North Pole. Polar Bear inhabit this region, along with Walrus and Ivory Gull.  We may sit for several hours in the pack ice, taking in our spectacular surroundings with their own wildlife. When the edge of the sea-ice is  tens of miles north of  the Seven Islands (mostly in August)  we will spend a  second day to get to and in the sea ice.  Alternatively (mostly in July) we turn to Sorg Fjord where we may find a herd of Walrus not far from the graves of 17th century whalers. On a nature walk, we may encounter families of Ptarmigans. The opposite side of the fjord is also a beautiful area for an excursion.

Day 7
Today we will sail into Hinlopen Strait, home to Bearded Seal, Ringed Seal, Polar Bear, and Ivory Gull. We’ll navigate the ice floes of Lomfjordshalvøya in our zodiacs and explore the bird cliffs of Alkefjellet with thousands of Brünnich’s Guillemot. On the east side of Hinlopenstrait, we’ll attempt a landing at Augustabukta on Nordaustlandet, home to reindeer, Pink-footed Goose, breeding Ivory Gull, and Walrus. Near Torrelneset, we will explore the polar desert of Nordaustlandet, next to the world’s third largest ice cap, which meets the sea nearby. We will walk along beautiful coastline covered in smooth rocks, sculpted by the surf over thousands of years. We may encounter Walrus along the way.

Day 8
In Freemansundet we plan to land at Sundneset on the island of Barentsøya to visit an old trapper's hut and then take a brisk walk across the tundra in search of Spitsbergen Reindeer and Barnacle Goose. Later we cruise south to Diskobukta on the west side of Edgeøya. After a Zodiac cruise through the shallow bay, we land on a beach littered with whale bones and tree trunks, which have drifted here from Siberia. We can also climb to the rim of a narrow gully which is inhabited by thousands of Kitttiwake, together with Black Guillemot and piratical Glaucous Gull. During the breeding season, the base of the cliffs is patrolled by Arctic Fox and Polar Bear, especially females with young cubs, searching for young birds that have fallen from the nesting ledges.
Day 9
We start the day quietly cruising the side fjords of the spectacular Hornsund area of southern Spitsbergen, enjoying the scenery of towering mountain peaks. Hornsundtind rises to 1,431m, while Bautaen shows why early Dutch explorers gave the name ‘Spitsbergen’ - pointed mountains - to the island. There are also 14 magnificent glaciers in the area and very good chances of encounters with seals and Polar Bear.

Day 10
Today we land on Ahlstrandhalvøya at the mouth of Van Keulenfjorden. Here piles of Beluga skeletons (the Beluga is a small white whale), the remains of 19th century slaughter, are yet another reminder of the consequences of thoughtless exploitation. Fortunately, Beluga were not hunted to the edge of extinction and may still be seen locally. Indeed, there is a good chance that we will come across a pod. Cruising into Recherchefjorden during the afternoon we can explore an area of tundra at the head of the fjord where many reindeer feed.

Día 11
Return to Longyearbyen and disembark for the transfer to the airport and the flight to Oslo and home.

Arctic cruise to the north ofthe Svalbard islands just 540 miles from the North Pole Geographic
Arctic Svalbard cruise around Spitsbergen Island to the floating icebergs inhabited by polar bears. We can view the remote polar cap, Nordaustlandet. We also can watch seals, walrus, seabirds and another arctic wildlife. We will sail in the fjords of the archipielago, where legendary polar explorers like Willian Parry, Umberto Nobile and others spent different centuries ago.
TRAVEL PROGRAM

Day 1
- Flight from your country of residence - Oslo.
- Accommodation in a hotel or hostel.
- Lunch and dinner not included.

Day 2
Arrive in Longyearbyen, the administrative capital of the Spitsbergen archipelago of which West Spitsbergen is the largest island. Before embarking there is an opportunity to stroll around this former mining town, whose parish church and Polar Museum are well worth visiting. In the surrounding area of Longyearbyen, more than 100 species of plants have been recorded. In the early evening the ship will sail out of Isfjorden, where in the mouth of the fjord we may see our first Minke Whale.

Day 3
We sail to Raudfjord on the north coast of West Spitsbergen, a beautiful fjord dominated by spectacular glaciers and favoured by Ringed and Bearded Seal. The cliffs and shoreline of the fjord also support thriving seabird colonies and a surprisingly rich vegetation, which flourishes in sheltered spots. Polar bear are often seen here.
Day 4
Depending on the weather we may now sail to the mouth of Liefdefjorden and go ashore for a walk on the tundra island of Andøya. Many Common Eider and Pink-footed Goose nest here, and the rarer King Eider may also be seen. We hope to sail into Liefdefjorden, crui¬sing near the 5km long face of the impressive Monaco Glacier. The waters of the glacier front are a favourite feeding spot for thousands of Kittiwake. As well, Polar Bear have been seen on the glacier, providing wonderful opportunities for photography.

Day 5
Today we will sail into Hinlopen Strait, home to Bearded Seal, Ringed Seal, Polar Bear, and Ivory Gull. At the entrance there is the possibility to see Blue Whale. We’ll navigate the ice floes of Lomfjordshalvøya in our zodiacs and explore the bird cliffs of Alkefjellet with thousands of Brünnich’s Guillemot. On the east side of Hinlopenstrait, we’ll attempt a landing at Palanderbukta on Nordaustlandet, home to reindeer, Pink-footed Goose, breeding Ivory Gull, and Walrus.

Day 6
We will try reach our northernmost point at Phippsøya, in the Seven Islands north of Nordaustlandet. Here we will be at 81 degrees north, just 540 miles from the geographic North Pole. Polar Bear inhabit this region, along with Ivory Gull. The ship may sit for several hours in the pack ice, before turning west again.

Day 7
Retracing our route westwards, our route takes us through and along the pack ice, keeping watch for Polar Bear and the elusive Greenland Whale (Bowhead). About 40 nautical miles west of Spitsbergen we sail along the edge of the continental shelf, where Fin Whale forage in summer in the upwellings along the Spitsbergen banks. At the mouth of the Kongsfjord we have also good chances to see Minke Whale.

Day 8
We land at the northern tip of Prins Karls Forland near Fuglehuken. Seabirds nest on the cliffs, and along the coast we see Harbour Seal, the only population found in Spitsbergen. Here we also will observe the remains of the Polar Bear hunting era, with demolished set guns and bear traps. At the opposite site of Forlandsundet at Sarstangen is a haul out place for Walrus. Alternatively we sail into St. Johns Fjord or south to the mouth of Isfjorden and land at Alkhornet. Seabirds nest on its cliffs and Arctic Fox search the cliff base for fallen eggs and chicks, while Spitsbergen Reindeer graze the relatively luxuriant vegetation. At nighttime we arrive in Longyearbyen.

TRAVEL RESUME
Iceland circumnavigation: sailing through the island of the thousand colours
Experience an exciting boat ride in this wild island full of contrasts. Discover its glaciers, volcanoes, black sand beaches and its spectacular waterfalls.
Enjoy contemplating its lush fauna. A magical and colorful Iceland welcome you this summer.

Prepare to be surprised!
TRAVEL PROGRAM
Day 1
- Flight from your country of residence - Reykjavik.
- Transfer by bus from the airport to the hotel  in Reykjavik.
- Lunch and dinner not included.
- Accommodation at the hotel in Reykjavik.

Day 2
- Breakfast at the hotel.
- Transfer by your own from the hotel to the harbour (this harbour is located in the heart of town which is a 5 minute walk to the inner city).
- Boarding.

Day 3 - Stykkisholmur
- Stykkisholmur is the starting point for our explorations of the Snaefellsnes Peninsula, which just out from Iceland's west coast.  Boarding our Zodiacs, we will explore Breidafjordur Bay, known for its colorful bird life, unique basalt rock formations and stunning scenery. We also have an opportunity to join an adventurous snowcat expedition to the extinct volcano glacier Snaefellsjokull with our experienced guides. The glacier is one of the most famous sites in Iceland primarily because it featured in the novel Journey to the Centre of the Earth by Jules Verne in which the entrance to the mysterious interior of our planet is located on Snaefellsjökull.

Day 4 - Isafjordur
- Today's destination is the idyllic town of Isafjordur, capital of the Westfjords region. This secluded peninsula is connected to the rest of Iceland by only a narrow strip of land. Even by Icelandic standards, the area can be described as unusually isolated. The landscape is characterized by mesas and dramatic fjords that cut deep into the landscape. Enjoy silence and nature while sea fishing or bird watching on the small island of Vigur, or by visiting the Dynjandi Waterfall, the highest cascade in this area.

Day 5 - Siglufjordur
- The next morning we reach the city of Siglufjordur, once the center of the Icelandic herring industry. Learn all about the golden age of Icelandic herring fishing at the award-winning Herring Museum. At lunchtime, we take a Zodiac excursion to Hedinsfjordur, an uninhabited inlet surrounded by the majestic mountains of the Trollaskagi Peninsula. In the early evening we arrive in Akureyri, capital of the north. Go for a stroll through the beautiful town and visit the botanical garden.

Day 6 - Akureyri
- Today the vessel remains in the port of Akureyri while we explore Iceland's north shore. Around 90 minutes by road to the east of the city is the Lake Myvatn region, a strikingly beautiful region where it's said that "heaven and hell" clash. One side of the lake is characterized by the rugged remnants of volcanic activity, while on the other we find fertile plains with lush greenery and a varied bird life. We have a choice between several exciting shore excursions. One possibility is the "Diamond Circle" tour which includes a visit to the massive Dettisfoss waterfall, the colorful Myvatn area and the lush Asbyrgi canyon.

Day 7 - Flatey
- Early in the morning we anchor off the island of Flatey, where we will board the Zodiacs for a whale watching tour in Skjalfandi Bay. During the journey enjoy views of the often snow-capped peaks of the Vik Mountains and be on the lookout for whales and dolphins. In the sheltered bay we can find up to 15 different species of whale, as well as dolphins and birds. After our zodiac tour we will visit the island of Flatey, a bird paradise with over 30 different types of birds and enjoy lunch on the island.


Day 8 – Seydisfjordur
- For our exploration of the Eastfjords, the ship docks in the port of Seydisfjordur. Characteristic of the region are the picturesque fishing villages, steep slopes and panoramic sea views. Spot seals while horseback riding, paddle kayaks in the idyllic fjords, take a hike and look out for wild reindeer or explore the town of Egilsstadir by bike.

Day 9 – Höfn
- The former fishing village of Hofn is a good starting point to explore Vatnajokull glacier. Go on a four-wheel-drive Jeep tour to the foot of the glacier and take a boat trip in the Jokulsarlon glacier lagoon. Icebergs in all shapes and sizes are floating in the water - an unforgettable adventure on a body of water that didn't exist at the beginning of the last century, as the lagoon was recently formed by the retreat of the Breidarmerkurjokull glacier tongue.

Day 10 – Westman Islands
- Located about five miles off the coast of southern Iceland, the island group Vestmannaeyjar were formed by submarine volcanic eruptions around 10,000 years ago. The youngest of the islands only emerged from the sea in 1963. We go ashore in the harbor of Heimaey, the only inhabited island of the group. Residents here live with the constant threat of another violent eruption. In 1973, the entire population had to be evacuated after Helgafell volcano suddenly exploded. In many places in Heimaey one still sees the houses half buried by lava and ash. We circumnavigate the island in our Zodiacs and stop at places of interest where we will get to know the local bird life, visit caves and, if lucky, spot whales. There is also the opportunity to play an extraordinary round of golf in a sunken volcanic crater.

Day 11 – Reykjavik
- In the morning we return to the port of Reykjavik. After breakfast it's time to bid farewell to the vessel.
- Lunch and dinner not included.
- Accommodation at the hotel in Reykjavik.

Travel by vehicle adapted to the tundra to watch and photograph Polar Bears
The Tundra vehicle is without doubt one of the best options available in the Arctic for watching, photographing and filming Polar Bears in the wild. From morning till night we are in its environment, in the middle of the Arctic tundra, in an endless winter...

TRAVEL RESUME
Trip to watch Belugas in the northern Manitoba’s Hudson Bay, Canada
This trip takes us to Churchill, a town at the northern coast of Manitoba in Canada, the Polar Bear capital and the home to the world’s largest population of beluga whales.
As a matter of fact, more than 57,000 beluga whales patrol the arctic and sub-arctic waters around the Hudson Bay each summer.
During our time in Churchill, we can enjoy making some outdoor activities like kayaking to watch the majestic and sociable belugas, take a guided tour around the Hudson Bay or visit the Fort Prince of Wales, a place of great historic significance.
In addition, we can optionally sail the waters of the Churchill River, where we will observe belugas and have the opportunity to listen while they communicate themselves, thanks to the sonar boat, and even to swim with them equipped with mask, snorkel and fins. Belugas are also known as "Sea Canaries" for their strange high-pitched whistles, clicking, chirping and other underwater vocalizations.

What used to be a bustling hub for fur traders was later reinvented into a stone fortification when peace was threatened between England and France. There was a strong desire to control Hudson Bay’s resources and the Prince of Wales Fort had the most advantageous position for defense. Take a trip back in time through the ruins of the fort that took 40 years to build under the harsh survival conditions of the Arctic.
