Elevated excursions with Oceania Cruises
Once in Spitsbergen, explore your options. Visit the husky farm for the abovementioned dogsledding experience through the pristine tundra landscape, after coffee and cake by the fireplace with the farm hosts. Or, cruise the remote waters of Isfjorden, where puffins, auks, kittiwakes and other seabirds nestle amongst the sea cliffs.
The picturesque port of Husavik, Iceland.
Such excursions typify the curated travel experiences Oceania Cruises guests can enjoy. Across the Greenland Sea, in the next port of Husavik, Iceland, discerning travellers can experience the open-air, mineral rich springs at Mývatn Nature Baths. Or, before the whale-watching that awaits in Nuuk, explore the tiny Greenlandic town of Paamiut with a local for the kind of intimate introduction to Old World ways of living that are all too rare to find these days.
With the world yearning to be discovered anew, there’s no better time to tick off the boxes on your bucket list – and with itineraries like this, few better luxury cruise lines to do it with than Oceania Cruises.
