Epic 80ºN Expedition - 24 Days

Traveling aboard the state-of-the-art National Geographic Explorer, experience true 21st-century exploration and follow in the wake of legendary explorers as we venture to new frontiers deep into the far reaches of the arctic. Explore Baffin Island and Lancaster Sound, then make your way up the beautiful coast of Ellesmere Island. Trace the rarely explored coast of northwest Greenland, going places where the National Geographic Explorer has yet to visit and tidewater glaciers of extreme beauty dominate. Tour Iceland’s capital, Reykjavik, and Greenland’s magnificent Ilulissat Icefjord, a UNESCO World Heritage site. The high arctic in its full glory is a lifetime experience that you will never forget.
