    Sail into a part of the world few ever venture, as the nimble G Expedition gives you a glimpse into the unspoiled wilderness of Greenland and Spitsbergen. Your adventure goes beyond the deck of the ship, with zodiacs and your own two feet taking you deeper into this glacial paradise. From exploring Northeast Greenland National Park to taking in frigid ocean horizons to a stop at the community of Ittoqqortoormiit, this journey shows you how those — whether person or polar bear — make the Arctic their home.

    Day 1

    Longyearbyen

    Please make sure you drop your checked luggage off at the meeting point between 9am - 1pm. A local representative will be in the luggage storage room. They can provide general information about the town or your embarkation process. All passengers will be transferred to the ship as a group for embarkation at 4pm. For embarkation, please ensure that you have your passport accessible (not in your luggage which is being transferred separately to the ship).

    Greenland Sea/Ittoqqortoormiit

    After several days traversing the far reaches of Greenland's awe-inspiring wilderness, visit the community of Ittoqortoormiit. Although small and far from other inhabited towns, the vibrance of life here is evident in the brightly coloured buildings, the eager Greenlandic husky puppies, the purr of the ATV engines racing along unpaved roads, and the warmth of the people who call Ittoqortoormiit home.

    Day 10

    Greenland Sea/Spitsbergen

    Explore a small portion of the western coast of Spitsbergen. Entering the fall the days are getting shorter so try to take advantage of all of the sunlight possible to search for wildlife. Look out for Svalbard's unique subspecies of reindeer. Although much smaller than their southern relatives, they still carry impressive antlers. Keep a sharp lookout for Arctic foxes. By not having a set itinerary, we take on an expedition spirit and are free to take advantage of the best that Svalbard has to offer.

    Day 14

    Spitsbergen/Longyearbyen

    General disembarkation from the vessel is at approximately 8:00am. You will be transferred to either the airport or the Radisson Blu Polar hotel, depending on the time of your flight. Those transferred to the hotel will have an opportunity to explore the town centre on their own, and then be transferred to the airport later in the day as per flight schedules. Transfer times will be confirmed and communicated onboard prior to departure. Due to restrictive airline schedules for flights departing from Longyearbyen, we are pleased to offer an early morning disembarkation and transfer to the airport for those passengers with flights departing Longyearbyen around 2:30am (dependent on airline schedules).
