From the majestic fjords of Norway, the Arctic Islands of Svalbard, Greenland and Iceland to the epic Northwest Passage, a cruise to the Arctic is a rare opportunity to escape into the immensity of this vast wilderness.
On our Arctic cruises you’ll discover a place that has inspired great poets, intrepid explorers and canny seafarers. Perhaps after your first glimpse of the Northern Lights you too might feel inspired to explore beyond the horizon.
Scenic Eclipse has been designed to take you to places other ships can’t dock. Cruise through labyrinthine fjords and into tiny harbours and discover a host of Arctic and Norwegian treasures that only Scenic can take you to.
Take a helicopter flight over the stunning Lofoten Islands, seek out the wildness of Bear Island on a kayak or watch in awe from your Zodiac or submarine as our Arctic cruises introduce you to the great Polar bear.
Exploring Iceland and beyond
An immersive, atmospheric adventure around Iceland is only the beginning on this incredible Arctic voyage.
Follow the Land of Fire and Ice with a journey along the fjords of East Coast Greenland – the world’s largest national park, before reaching the Svalbard Archipelago. Here frozen tundra, carved glaciers and Arctic flora and fauna wait to greet and astound you.
Head for the High Arctic
This is a real expedition in a true High Arctic wilderness. As such, our route and exploration opportunities here are heavily dependent on the weather and sea ice conditions we encounter. Our experienced Captain and Discovery Leader decide the itinerary and continually adjust plans as conditions and opportunities warrant.
Polar bears and other quintessential Arctic wildlife can be spotted anytime, anywhere in and around Svalbard. We find every opportunity to experience excellent wildlife viewing, to discover incredible scenery, and to walk in the footsteps of the historic polar expeditions that came before us.
Pure Polar perfection
Whales, wolverines, seabirds and seals… let the creatures of the north introduce themselves as you head deep into the north to cruise the Svalbard Archipelago.
This flexible itinerary allows nature to be your perfect guide for navigating a true Arctic wilderness. In the realm of the Polar bear you’ll of course search for this elusive beast, while simultaneously experiencing the endless summer daylight, sparkling icebergs and snow-capped mountain ranges of Svalbard. Rugged glaciers, spectacular fjords and frozen tundra lie in wait as you explore one of the world’s northernmost inhabited areas. A true final frontier.
