The Arctic Highlights tour starts in Longyearbyen and ends in Reykjavik. The Arctic Highlights is a trekking tour that takes 15 days taking you from Longyearbyen to Reykjavik and through other destinations in Europe.

Sailing from Spitsbergen to Greenland, follow the ice’s edge with an eye peeled to the horizon for wildlife. Navigating south, you'll explore this remote landscape not only by ship but also on foot and via Zodiac. This journey highlights the contrast and change in the Arctic as you move south, finally ending in Iceland, "the Land of Fire and Ice." An Inuit village, unique wildlife, and remote destinations are just some of the highlights on this truly unforgettable voyage through the Arctic.
