THE ARCTIC -
SVALBARDISPITSBERGEN, BEAR ISLAND AND GREENLAND
Svalbard, has a surprisingly diversified scenery, such as tundra,
glaciers, fjords and mountains with peaks higher than 5,000 feet in the
west. You will visit many remote parts, where you will have the chance
to observe Arctic fox and deer and thousands of seabirds like the
colourful puffin, Arctic skua, barnacle geese, long-tailed duck, red
throated divers and guillemots. On specific Spitsbergen trips there will
be a unique opportunity to dive these waters and explore the fascinating
undenvater icefloes and marine wildlife of the Arctic.
HEBRIDES, ORKNEY AND SHETLAND ISLANDS
Islands are a suitable place for hikers and ornithologists, with wild
scenery and interesting archaeological remains, which date back to
Celtic times. Breathtaking cliffs with thousands of seabrids, such as
Great Skuas, Arctic Skuas, guillemots, puffins, kittiwakes and storm
petrels can be seen. Grey seals may be spotted on certain landings.
THE FAROE ISLANDS AND JAN MAYEN
These rather isolated locations in
the North Atlantic are ideal for expeditions by ship. On the Faroes, you
can observe large colonies of seabirds. The landscape on Jan Mayen is
dominated by the still active volcano, Berenberg.
AND TROPICAL ATLANTIC ISLANDS
These unique voyages start
in Europe and end in South America or vice versa. During our northbound
voyage in the springtime, remote islands such as Tristan da Cunha, St.
Helena, Ascension and Cape Verde are visited. In Autumn, on our
Southbound voyage, we may also visit the Azores, Mauritania and Trindade
in Brazil. Many of the islands are of volcanic origin, with impressive
craters and odd rock formations.
