Three Arctic Islands: Iceland, Greenland, Spitsbergen

13 ou 14 dias

Três Ilhas Árticas: Islândia, Groenlândia e Spitsbergen

Uma exclusividade da Quark Expeditions, esta premiada expedição de cruzeiro te leva à Scorsbysund, na costa nordeste da Groenlândia, à Islândia e bem acima do Círculo Polar Ártico, à Noruega. Os icônicos animais árticos como o urso polar, o boi-almiscarado, a rena e a morsa são vistos com frequência. Nenhuma outra aventura ártica leva a tantos destinos variados, de vulcões ativos a geleiras gigantescas. Se você deseja viver o Ártico em toda sua beleza, então você deve se aventurar por essas três ilhas árticas.

Day-by-Day Expedition in Brief

  • Escolhida como um dos 50 melhores tours da National Geographic Viagens (“National Geographic Traveler’s 50 Tours of a Lifetime”).
  • As geleiras e a fauna de Spitsbergen
  • Costa afastada da Groenlândia
  • Cruzeiros de botes Zodiac
  • Caminhadas na tundra
  • Passeios opcionais de caiaque em algumas expedições

Day 1 — Embarkation Day in Longyearbyen, Norway

Your voyage will embark in Longyearbyen, Spitsbergen.

Days 2 to 5 — Spitsbergen, Norway

Exploring Spitsbergen, the largest of the Norwegian-ruled Svalbard islands, rewards you with abundant wildlife and austere beauty. Here, you’ll visit spectacular glacier fronts and steep- walled fjords with walrus, polar bears and Spitsbergen reindeer among your possible wildlife sightings.

Days 6 and 7 — Greenland Sea

While sailing south through the historic Greenland Sea, you’ll learn about the wildlife and history of Greenland, your next stop. On deck, you’ll learn to identify seabirds on the wing. Take in a lecture, share your photos, sip an icy cocktail in the bar or watch a movie—there are many things to do during your time at sea.

Days 8 to 11 — East Greenland

During your tour of Greenland’s remote eastern coast, you’ll enjoy Zodiac cruises and shore visits to several locations. Visit the remains of ancient Thule settlements, and keep an eye out for grazing muskoxen; 40% of the world’s population lives here. Finally, you will sail through spectacular Scoresbysund, the birthplace of many icebergs and, some say, the most beautiful fjord system in the world.

Day 12 — Denmark Strait

At sea, the Denmark Strait is your pathway toward Iceland. Your Expedition Team will keep you informed and entertained with presentations about the history of exploration in the Arctic and the seabirds you’ll inevitably see soaring above your ship.

Day 13 — Depart Reykjavik

You’ll disembark in Akureyri, and transfer to your waiting charter flight to Reykjavik, Iceland’s capital, at the end of your journey. If you have booked post-expedition accommodation, we provide a transfer to a central downtown location.

Passeios de caiaque são provavelmente uma das formas mais pessoais e inspiradoras que alguém pode explorar as costas escarpadas e as calmas baías das regiões que visitamos.

Navegar de caiaque em regiões polares depende muito do tempo, no entanto, garantimos pelo menos um passeio durante sua viagem. Com clima bom, os guias os levarão para passeios o máximo de vezes possível.  

Oferecido na maioria das viagens ao Ártico, porém as vagas são limitadas e requerem alguma experiência em caiaquismo. Todos os equipamentos, guias e instruções são fornecidos pela Quark. Favor contatar um dos nossos consultores de viagens Quark para mais informações.

Expedition Facts

Onboard Lectures

Presentations by Quark’s Expedition Team are included as part of your voyage. Through formal illustrated presentations, as well as informal briefings, the Quark Expeditions Team will cover a range of topics including ornithology, marine biology, glaciology, geography, geology, history and the environment.

“Odden Ice Tongue”

The Greenland Sea was home to a seasonal ice bridge called the “Odden Ice Tongue”. Last formed in 1997, this bridge of sea ice would form from the eastern edge of Greenland halfway to Svalbard, reaching Jan Mayen Island. The name came from the way the ice was formed in the currents of the Greenland Sea, which made it resemble a tongue.

The Quark Expedition Team Is Exceptional

“The Quark expeditions team is, as always, EXCEPTIONAL!! Their level of quality of care, enthusiasm, knowledge, friendliness, safety and passion exceed expectations. My first experience with the Quark family was earlier in the year with a trip to Antarctica. I was so happy with my experience that I had to book another trip with them later in the same year to the other end of the World - The Arctic, which was another great experience. I’m looking forward to where the Quark family can take me next!”
