A varied region and what a magnificent one indeed. From the wilds of Iceland and the remoteness of Greenland to tranquil waters of the Faroes, this is a region bursting with secrets and beauty.



The people of Iceland were once some of the most daring seafarers around. They made extended tours in ‘Viking’ long ships across the Atlantic discovering Greenland and Vinland, today know as New Foundland. The country itself is tiny, with a population of mere ¼ of a million. It offers incredible scenery and unparalleled geological attractions that can bring a whole continent to a standstill.

You can choose a comfortable touring option or you can go trekking, ice climbing, super-jeep riding, fly fishing or jump on the back of an Icelandic horse. Without boundaries on skill levels and experience, our Iceland tours, treks and family adventures give you a powerful experience of the island’s natural beauty and landscapes. Iceland is a popular place to tour so we strongly recommend booking early.

Greenland has so much to offer our new explorers; from trekking in the southeast, kayaking, and dog sledding, or just cruising and touring along its magnificent coastline. Summer in Greenland enjoys long days and mild weather, winter lights up with aurora borealis shows.

We have new voyages that take you along the West coast of Greenland on comfortable coastal ferries, travelling like the locals. Alternatively, you can experiences the whales and thrills of tall ship sailing through icebergs on board the M/V Rembrandt or visit remote villages on the MS Fram.

Our independent tours can show you the contrasts of Greenland: the lush green and the cool blue in the landscape, the thriving & modern towns, next to the tranquillity and peacefulness in the villages. You can experience the ice; in the fjords and at nearby glaciers, and you can enjoy the excellent hiking possibilities and study the exceptional geology of the area. Our tours of Greenland let you experience a modern country in comfort and style; north of the Polar Circle.

If adventure is not your thing, sit back on your hotel patio and see majestic icebergs float in the fjord right outside the town and experience the impressive glacier of Eqi at close range.

Faroe Islands

Perched in the North Atlantic Ocean, only a short flight from mainland Europe, the jagged cliffs of the Faroe Islands will take your breath away. This is a true adventure destination, not necessarily for the active nature of a visit, but for the feeling of remoteness and isolation. To us, the Faroe Islands are a hidden secret not sought by many, and spending time here will give you an unforgettable experience of remote living at the edge of the open sea.

"The Faroe Islands are not your run-of-the-mill holiday destination. This is a remote land where the sheep are fearless, the birds are shrewd and the weather is a state of mind."  THE GUARDIAN    

We can tailor-make a self-drive holiday for you or join a guided tour.
