Cruise to the Arctic Circle, the Polar Icecap and Norwegian/Icelandic Fjords – June 11, 2023

By Suzanne Klasen

Join Suzanne and Steve of CruiseOne Show Low, AZ on our Voyage deep into the Arctic Circle as we visit Spitsbergen, the Polar Icecap and the spectacular fjords of Iceland and Norway. Traverse fire and ice as you glide Liefdefd Fjord, the polar icecap, Spitsbergen, Isafjördurm and other nature-ensconced areas. This cruise also visits Dover, England and makes 3 stops in Scotland (Kirkwall, Edinburgh and Inverness).

We set sail on this cruise of a lifetime onboard the Holland America Zuiderdam in July of 2023 roundtrip from Rotterdam, Netherlands. Explore the Land of Fire and Ice on an exhilarating roundtrip cruise from Rotterdam. Glide through picturesque fjords and polar icecap, soak in Reykjavík overnight, view Scottish castles and craggy coastlines galore.

From mid-May until the end of July, the Midnight Sun shines over the polar cap and Svalbard, the archipelago that lies 800 kilometers directly north of Norway in the Arctic Ocean. Under the Gulf Stream’s moderating influence, packed sea ice melts in the summer, and visitors are captivated by the rugged landforms and wildlife of one of the remotest places on Earth.
