Think hot air ballooning over the North Pole; hiking to see the Northern Lights in Greenland, or cruising to the top of the world in the most powerful icebreaker on earth for a truly unique and memorable travel experience! If you're keen to do an adventure challenge together, you may like to check out the latest Arctic cruise schedule with Peregrine Adventures.
Greenland is the best place on earth to see the Aurora Borealis – the Northern Lights – one of nature’s most spectacular shows. Peregrine’s new 14-day East Greenland Explorer trip aboard the Akademik Sergey Vavilov, is timed to coincide with the optimum atmospheric conditions for viewing the Lights.
Departing from Reykjavik, Iceland, the cruise explores the east coast of Greenland, including iceberg-choked fjords, glaciers and Inuit settlements. The focus is on hiking, with a variety of half and full-day hikes through the immense wilderness, with the chance of seeing all manner of wildlife, including Polar Bear and Musk Ox.
The 14-day cruise departs on September 16, 2012 and costs from $7750 per person, twin-share, cruise only. Or for bookings made by September 30, prices start at $6795.
Possibly the only thing more ‘out there’ than cruising aboard the world’s largest and most powerful icebreaker to the North Pole is jumping into a wicker basket and floating over the ice in a hot air balloon. It’s arguably the most ‘exclusive’ adventure on earth: few humans will ever do it as it’s only open to a total of 100 people.
