Iceland to Greenland: Voyage to the Arctic Circle Aboard M.S. L’AUSTRAL
August 2 - 14, 2014
Iceland, a land of unparalleled geological riches, the rugged west coast of Greenland—the world’s largest island—and the rarelyvisited Arctic Circle—where ice-filled fjords, calving glaciers, and majestic icebergs form a dream landscape—are yours to discover. Call on ports inaccessible to larger vessels and explore one of the world’s last great frontiers. Discover the very edge of civilization—home to eight species of whales, two million seals, walruses, reindeer, and an amazing variety of seabirds.
