Greg Mortimer
Exterior Greg Mortimer

The Greg Mortimer is a new purpose built, polar expedition vessel taking 120 guests. This vessel has been designed in close consultation with Antarctic expedition specialists and is the first expedition cruise ship designed with the ULSTEIN X-BOW hull. This cutting edge nautical technology allows for gentle travel and motion at sea, improved comfort and safety on-board, reduced vibrations, lower fuel consumption and emissions and ‘virtual anchoring’ which means the ship can float anchor-less while launching the Zodiacs without disturbing delicate sea floor areas. There are four sea-level launching platforms for fast and efficient access to and from Zodiacs.

Day 1 Longyearbyen

Longyearbyen Spitsbergen Svalbard

Longyearbyen is the capital of Svalbard, a Norwegian territory. After arriving you will have time to explore the Svalbard Museum and look around the shops. Board the ship in the late afternoon and sail down magnificent Isfjorden.

Days 2-3 Spitsbergen

Polar Bear

Spitsbergen’s northwest coast features calving icebergs, historic whaling stations and trappers’ camps. Brunnich’s guillemots, little auks and kittiwakes nest in their thousands. Reindeer roam tundra dotted with wildflowers like saxifrage, moss campion and bell-heather. Take a Zodiac excursion for fantastic views of ice cliffs, including Monacobreen, one of Spitsbergen’s largest glaciers. In the north, look for walrus and possibly polar bears.

Days 4-8 Greenland Sea

At Sea

The ship will push through pack ice as you cross the Greenland Sea towards East Greenland National Park.  the expert naturalists and guest lecturers will hold an educational program and entertain you with fascinating talks on plants, animals and early explorers like Nansen, Andrée and Scoresby. Keep an eye out for fin whales, encroaching sea ice and seabirds. Once you have arrived at Greenland’s northeast coast, you will have several excursions a day, with possible landings including Kaiser Franz Josef Fjord, Kap Humboldt and King Oscar Fjord.

Days 12-15 East Greenland & Jan Mayen

Greenlands Fjords

Enjoy some final landings in Greenland, possibly including Blosseville Coast and Romer Fjord before crossing the Greenland Sea to Jan Mayen.

Days 16-20 Coast of Norway
