MS Spitsbergen - 156 Guests

North Atlantic Odyssey - From Scotland Into The Arctic

26 Day Glasgow to Longyearbyen

Island adventures
Our adventure begins as we sail from Glasgow to Belfast and the Isle of Man. Follow the whisky trail in Islay before exploring the beautiful Outer Hebrides, Viking-influenced Orkneys, and remote Shetland Islands. After a day in Bergen, we’ll sail to the Faroe Islands, known for their soaring bird cliffs.

To the Arctic
The next leg of our journey takes us to some of Iceland’s northern coastal towns, including Húsavík, the country’s whale watching capital. We’ll attempt to land at Jan Mayen, site of the world’s northernmost volcano, before spending two days around Spitsbergen, and ending our expedition in Longyearbyen.





  • Discover the pristine natural beauty of the rugged Scottish Isles, the ’Land of Fire and Ice’, Iceland, and the frozen island of Spitsbergen.
  • Sample the unique malts of Islay’s distilleries, explore UNESCO World Heritage Sites, and admire the untouched volcanic scenery of Jan Mayen.
  • Keep watch for whales and seabirds in Iceland, and look out for the elusive polar bear as we sail deep into the Arctic.

MS Spitsbergen (Expedition, 156-guests)

MS Spitsbergen joined the Hurtigruten fleet in 2016. The ship features high technical standards as well as comfortable, modern public areas and cabins. The vessel's fresh Scandinavian design reflects a colour palette derived from the sea. She is modern and environmentally progressive, and further improvements have been planned that will reduce emissions and fuel consumption even more. The new ship's maneuverability and optimal size make her quite suitable for exploring polar waters.
