Europe Exploration cruises

Exploration cruises in Europe

Introduction

The frozen north can only really be explored on an exploration cruise, which also allows you to sail above the Arctic Circle in search of the enchanting and starkly beautiful landscapes here.

Nose amongst the fjords of Norway's rugged coast or continue north to discover the ice fields of Spitsbergen and Svalbard. During the summer months the sun never sets on these dramatic landscapes, meaning that you can see wildlife even more easily. Lookout for whales and polar bears, with the option to disembark and take to the ice as well.

These are just a handful of the options available though. You can also tailor-make your adventure cruise in Europe by adding a city stay or other excursion to your itinerary before or after you sail; talk to a destination specialist to see what we can do for you.
