When you think of history and culture, the icy expanse of the Arctic Circle might not be the first destination that springs to mind. So, it might surprise you to learn that a journey to this northern tip of the world is rich with Norse mythology, Viking history and Inuit culture. From artefact-filled museums, old whaling stations and historic Viking towns there are plenty of cultural sites to uncover. There will still be plenty of opportunities to experience the unique Arctic wilderness with visits to fjords, glaciers and icebergs aplenty – and make sure you keep an eye out for the illusive polar bear… Highlights/r/n
  • Spot puffins on Fair Isle, the United Kingdom’s most remote inhabited island.
  • Explore the maze of narrow laneways in Torshavn’s Old Town.
  • Experience the mountainous beauty of Jan Mayen.
  • Search for Hornsund's abundant wildlife, including reindeer, auk and polar bears.
