Embark on a unique voyage to some of the most sparsely populated islands of the North Atlantic. From our well-appointed expedition vessels, make regular landings to experience these islands first hand. Witness soaring cliffs teeming with thousands of seabirds, rugged mountains where sheep graze on steep slopes, and meet the hardy folk who still make their living from the sea and the land – enduring all the Atlantic throws at them. Finish up in Spitsbergen, the wildlife capital of the Arctic where the polar bear reigns as king, and keep your fingers crossed for a chance to spot these huge carnivores as they hunt on icy shores.
- Spot storm petrels, razorbills and even adorable Atlantic puffins on Fair Isle's bird cliffs, one of the best birdlife watching locales in the UK.
- Stroll the laneways of Torshavn in the Faroe Islands and admire the quaint wooden houses with traditional sod roofs.
- Step foot on the rarely visited Jan Mayen islands, which is often shrouded in mist and has a population of just 18 Norwegian soldiers and meteorologists.
- End this trip in Spitsbergen with all of the wildlife wonders that it offers, including the opportunity to see polar bears, minke whales, Arctic foxes and walruses in their natural habitat
