Exploring Spitsbergen via the Faroes and Jan Mayen

From £3760 for 14 days
Trip Overview
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…

Itinerary & Notes
Welcome to Scotland! You can arrive at any time on Day 1 and make your way to your included hotel. There will be a welcome meeting at 6pm at the hotel – please ask the hotel reception for details about where the meeting will take place and remember to bring along a copy of your passport and important documents to give to your leader. The gateway for your arctic adventure, the Scottish city of Aberdeen has many monikers, but its most famous is Granite City, as it was once the granite capital of the world. Wandering the streets, you’ll soon see why, as the Victorian buildings sparkle in the sun. A bustling cultural hub, Aberdeen also offers a range of museums, galleries, theatres, shops, cafés and restaurants to explore. You may want to head out for dinner with your group to get to know them – your leader will be able to provide many great recommendations.
