Iceland & Arctic Unveiled

Overview

Before boarding our exclusive Chimu charter to the Arctic, why not spend 9 days exploring the beautiful landscapes of Iceland.  This breathtaking country boasts glaciers, mountains, volcanoes and waterfalls.  Start your journey in the world's northernmost capital of Reykjavik where you can find Iceland's main cultural attractions.  Travel through picturesque fishing towns, beautiful fjords, sheer mountains, farming villages, idyllic waterfalls and glacial rivers.  Although you may be sad to bid farewell to Iceland, a whole new adventure awaits you in the Arctic.  As polar specialists, Chimu are well known for Antarctica charters but 2019 will see us take our first charter northbound.  On Day 9, you will fly from Reykjavik to the Arctic town of Longyearbyen in Norway.  There is the chance to explore this land of the midnight sun before you board the newly refurbished Ocean Atlantic.  She will be your passport to this icy wilderness; taking you through some of the most varied scenery imaginable.  Picture formidable mountains, azure blue glaciers and jagged cliffs.  Wildlife viewing opportunities are also abundant here for the patient observer with myriad seal and bird species, the elusive Arctic fox and hopefully a polar bear.  Combining these two stunning locations promises to be the ultimate trip!
