365 Days of Arctic Cruising

February 19, 2020 - 2 minutes read

With Oceanwide Expeditions you can now explore awesome Arctic destinations during all four seasons.

Due to the great success of the “Aurora Borealis” seven-night voyages aboard Rembrandt van Rijn and Noorderlicht (7 nights) in northern Norway, they will continue to offer departures during the winter months (November to April) — which makes Oceanwide the only polar cruise company operating 365 days a year in the Arctic.

Later in the season, Rembrandt van Rijn will explore the Scoresbysund (Ittoqqortoormiit Fjord) along Greenland’s remote east coast, a destination ideally suited for activity minded passengers and photographers. Passengers will embark/disembark at Nerlerit Inaat (Constable Pynt) with connecting flights to/from Iceland’s Keflavik International Airport.

Dates and rates are now available for the 2021 polar journeys aboard the Hondius (170 passengers), Ortelius, Plancius (both 108 passengers), Rembrandt van Rijn (33 passengers) and Noorderlicht (20 passengers).
