Day 2:Isafjrdur
Explore Westfjords’ beautiful harborside town Flanked by towering mountains on all sides, Ísafjörður is a nearly perfect natural harbor. You’ll arrive just after lunch, so there’s plenty time to explore this picturesque harborside town. Stroll around to see the architecture, shop for local handicrafts, and see some of the oldest houses in Iceland. One of these historic 18th-century buildings is home to Westfjords Heritage Museum, where you can learn about the maritime past of this fascinating port. If you prefer something more energetic, take the steep hike up to Naustahvilft—the Troll’s Throne. You’ll be rewarded for your efforts with a stunning panoramic view at the top.

Day 4:Jan Mayen
Visit an active volcano that’s a haven for birdlife Jan Mayen has no permanent residents and visits to the island are rare. We're one of the few to even attempt landings here. If conditions are favorable, you may set foot on one of Earth’s most remote places. Jan Mayen’s surreal, moss- and lichen-streaked landscape is dominated by the volcanic cone of Mount Beerenberg. It’s the world’s northernmost active volcano, which last erupted in 1985. You won’t see land mammals, but the island is designated an Important Bird Area, supporting large populations of northern fulmars, Brünnich’s guillemots and little auks. Look out for abundant marine life in the waters, including whales and seals.

We will make the most of current conditions and pack in as many shore landings, nature walks, kayaking tours, and wildlife sightings as possible. This is one of the most beautiful places on the planet. Whether you want to be active or just soak up the serenity is up to you.

Day 15:Ittoqqortoormiit
Get an insight into authentic Greenlandic life After our expedition in Scoresby Sund, we return to (sparse) civilization. Ittoqqortoormiit is the only permanent settlement in the region. It is located on an Arctic peninsula that is encased by sea ice for nine months of the year. This makes the settlement the most remote inhabited community in the western hemisphere! Ittoqqortoormiit was founded in 1925 as a hunting and fishing town. That cultural legacy is still easy to observe. Less than 500 brave souls call this remote outpost home, and they’ll be proud to show you around and give you a warm welcome.
