Arctic & Antarctic

Aurora Arctic Expedition | June 2024

Arctic & Antarctic

Enjoy the best of Svalbard, a world of endless daylight. A land where polar bear sightings will delight, guillemot cries echo from the sea cliffs, and beluga whales rise from the sea. Explore tundra adorned with wildflowers and search for arctic fox, or discover historic camps of explorers and hunters. Push through pack ice to find walrus and bearded seals, or simply enjoy the breathtakingly beautiful Norwegian fjords.

The Faroe Islands | July 2024

Arctic & Antarctic

The Faroe Islands are not on many Australians’ travel list. But they should be because they are a hidden treasure! Every village seems to be perched on the most picturesque bay overlooking the Atlantic. The houses are quaint. There are waterfalls at every turn. Salmon is abundant. While once a Norwegian asset, these fishing islands have been under Danish control/support since 1388. The official language of the Faroe Islands is Faroese, a Germanic language that descended from Old Norse.

Ilulissat, Greenland | July 2024

Arctic & Antarctic

The Nordic settler Eric the Red gave Greenland this misleading description of it being green in a bid to attract more settlers. However, it is far from green and is, in effect the world’s largest island, almost entirely covered in ice. These days it’s more about enjoyment - deep-sea fishing, whale-watching, Arctic cruising, dog-sledding, mountaineering, and bird-watching. The scenery could only be described as stunning, but words don’t do it justice.
