an unforgettable journey

Board Ambience at London Tilbury for this exciting Arctic voyage. After a relaxing day at sea, your first port of call is Reykjavik, the world’s most northerly capital. Heading further west across the North Atlantic, you’ll make several fascinating calls in Greenland, before heading home via the remote Orkney Isles.

Sail through waters crossed a thousand years ago by Norse adventurers on their way to the New World as you head to Greenland, the world’s largest island. Keep an eye out for whales as you make several fascinating calls, including at picturesque Qaqortoq and Ilulissat, famed for its dramatic icefjords and huge icebergs.

 

OUR FROZEN PLANET THEME CRUISE

 

Join us as we discover the landscapes of Greenland and Iceland with special star guests, polar experts and award-winning explorers, Louis Rudd MBE, Ann Daniels and Wendy Searle, all here to encourage more people to pursue their ideas and become adventurous role models. We have ORCA, a charity that’s entirely dedicated to studying and protecting whales, dolphins and porpoises in UK and European waters, with two expert environmentalists on board to make sure no viewing of the incredible wildlife is missed. ORCA is passionate about people and is dedicated to combining accessible marine education with their conservation activities - giving ordinary people opportunities to take an active role in marine science and conservation. The team will be providing lectures on whales, dolphins, porpoises and other marine conservation issues as well as workshops on spotting whales and dolphins. There will be drop-in sessions to discuss wildlife topics as well as specially escorted excursions. We have wildlife commentaries in the seaview lounges and public address systems, deck watches during daylight hours, and teams working on public decks to help guests spot wildlife whilst recording real scientific data to protect marine life. It will certainly be a cruise like no other!

    Reykjavík is the world's northernmost capital. Its brightly painted wooden buildings contrast sharply with the stunning beauty of its setting beneath Mount Ejsa. Step ashore to explore, take the lift to the top of the Hallgrímskirkja Church for a panoramic view, or visit the fascinating Arbaer Folk Museum and the Saga Museum as Ambience spends an evening and a full day here, and perhaps take a nighttime trip outside the city in search of the Northern Lights, the enchanting Aurora Borealis, that flicker across Iceland’s autumn and winter skies.

    Appropriately, given that its name means "icebergs", Ilulissat is a great place to watch these frozen masses, and search the seas for the whales and other marine mammals that live among them. The town was also the birthplace of Arctic explorer Knud Rasmussen, and his life is celebrated there in the museum that bears his name.

Further Information

  • New rules apply when travelling to European Union countries and Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway and Switzerland. The following are useful guidelines which will help you prepare for your next adventure. Note that these new rules do NOT apply when travelling within the United Kingdom or to the Channel Islands, the Isle of Man or the Republic of Ireland. You do require government issued ID when travelling by air though.

    Passport

    British passport holders need to have at least six months validity left on their passport and it needs to be less than ten years old; passports which have a longer validity than ten years are not valid for travel once the tenth anniversary of issue has passed. These rules do not apply to travel to Ireland where you can continue to use your passport as long as it’s valid for the length of your stay.

    Visa

    If you’re a tourist, you do not need a visa for short trips to most EU countries, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway and Switzerland. You’ll be able to stay for up to 90 days in any rolling 180-day period. Different rules will apply to Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus and Romania; if you visit these countries, visits to other EU countries will not count towards the 90-day total. Travel to Ireland will not change and stays there will not count towards the 90-day total.

    European Travel Information & Authorisation System (ETIAS)

    Towards the end of 2022, it is likely that non EU citizens will be required to apply online for an authorisation to visit most European countries. The current details suggest there will be a charge of €7 per person and the authorisation will be valid for all trips made to the EU in a three year period from issue. We will advise you of confirmed details prior to your tour’s departure.

    Border Control

    At border control, you may need to show proof of your return journey - your travel documentation issued by us will be sufficient for this. You will also need to use separate lanes from EU, EEA and Swiss citizens if manual checks are required.

    Healthcare Cover

    You should always get appropriate travel insurance with healthcare cover before you go abroad which covers pre-existing conditions. You should understand the terms and conditions of your travel insurance and be happy with its cover for healthcare and travel disruption. Newmarket sell a comprehensive travel insurance policy. Ask our travel consultants for more information.

    You should also apply for a UK Global Heath Insurance Card (GHIC) which lets you get urgent state healthcare in Europe at a reduced cost or sometimes for free. Note GHIC is only valid in EU countries and not in Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway and Switzerland.

    Mobile Roaming

    Roaming charges have been re-introduced by some UK providers when visiting the EU, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway and Switzerland. Prior to travel, please do check with your phone operator for the most up to date information.
