At the foot of the massive Vatnajokull ice cap lies an otherworldly, strikingly picturesque glacier lagoon.

AUG 22���23: Faroe Islands, Denmark

Tiny villages and jaw-droppingly dramatic landscapes dot the northern shores, where you begin your exploration of the rarely visited Faroe Islands. Of mixed Norse and Gaelic heritage, Faroe Islanders likely came from the Irish Sea and the Upper Hebrides of Scotland originally. Known to be fiercely independent, the Faroes maintain the oldest existing parliament in the world today. The islands have a total area of roughly 540 square miles and a population of about 50,000 — along with 70,000 sheep. During your visit, take in Torshavn, the Faroes’ capital city. Torshavn’s old town, Tinganes, is packed with sod-roof houses crowded together on a small peninsula. Old Torshavn contrasts strongly with the new, as modern boutiques and coffeehouses alternate with historic buildings, boisterously sung ballads and traditional chain dancing.

(Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner)
Hotel: 'Le Boreal'  

AUG 24: At Sea

Join your expedition staff on deck to look for the whales thatpopulate the Norwegian Sea. Pilot whales, minke whales,orcas and majestic humpbacks all make their homes inthese waters. Don’t forget to look up for razorbills, glaucous gulls or kittiwakes as they wheel toward you above theship. August is an excellent month to spot the northernfulmar or Atlantic puffin in these waters, and your onboardornithologist helps you identify what you’re observing.

AUG 25���27: Norwegian Fjords

The legendary beauty of this region calls to many travellers, and many have included the stunning Norwegian fjords on their bucket lists. A fjord is a deep, narrow sea or lake drain with steep land on three sides. Norway’s fjords were formed by giant glaciers that descended over the course of several ice ages and carved out the current landscape. Fjords are natural harbors; fascinating cultures developed in the tiny hamlets that formed on their shores. Some of the areas you may visit include:

Trondheim Fjord: This fjord, the third longest in Norway,offers the iconic landscapes and green mountain paradisemost people imagine when envisioning the fjords.

Trondheim: Quaint, brightly colored historic residencesand shops line the River Nidelva. Cyclists glide by on widestreets, and pedestrians make their way to bustling cafés inthis upbeat metropolis of nearly 200,000 people.

Vega Island: A UNESCO World Heritage Site, Vega Islandis emblematic of how fishermen and farmers survived theharsh Arctic climate for centuries. You might climb 2,000steps to experience an unbelievable view. Or you may visitan artist’s studio and try your hand at making pottery theway it has been made here for generations.

Vesteralen Islands: Myths, magic and reindeer herding fillthe lives of the Sami people, who welcome you into their homes for a seat near a cozy fireplace. You might also hikethe mountains of Vesteralen with a local guide, head out ona mountain biking excursion or meet locals from HadselIsland, who wish to share their favorite dishes with you.Prepare to say goodbye to your newfound friends andthe rich cultures of these Arctic regions at the Captain’sFarewell Dinner on one of these evenings.
