15-Day Spectacular Svalbard & Greenland (6th August 2022)
Departing from Oslo onboard Seabourn Venture and ending in Reykjavik, this incredible trip gives you a full five days around the islands of Svalbard, which soar up from the Arctic Ocean halfway between the North Cape of Norway and the North Pole, and offer up sighting of migratory birds, grazing reindeer, Arctic foxes, seals, walruses, polar bears patrolling the rocky shorelines and floating ice and whales breaching offshore.
You’ll also enjoy five days discovering Greenland, mainly Scoresby Sund, the longest fjord in the world and one of the most remote and wildest regions on Earth, with wildlife including muskox, foxes, Arctic hares, short-tailed weasels and lemmings, and the famous ‘iceberg graveyard’ of Rødefjord.

10-Day Autumn Atlantic Migration (2nd October 2022)
This epic journey on Seabourn Venture from Canada’s maritime province of Newfoundland to the Barbados capital Bridgetown stops off in Puerto Rico, the British Virgin Islands, St. Kitts & Nevis and Martinique.
Along the way you’ll get the chance to explore the El Yunque rainforest on the northeastern side of Puerto Rico, with its mountain lakes, waterfalls, teak forests and magnificent phosphorescent bays; tour the pristine, traffic-free Virgin island of Jost Van Dyke that still looks much as it must have 100 or even 200 years ago; and relax on St. Kitts’ golden Carambola Beach with its glamorous beach clubs and restaurants and its water sports, or see the island’s lovingly preserved plantation greathouses and the UNESCO listed Brimstone Hill Fortress.
In Fort-de-France, Martinique’s capital, you may well think of New Orleans or Nice (its boutiques have a distinct Gallic feel), while the island also has tranquil beaches and lush rainforest to discover.
Cruise from £4,499pp which includes $600 shipboard credit per suite, departing on 02/10/22
