Solo travellers can get a single cabin without extra cost on cruises to the arctic

On select expedition cruises to the Arctic, solo travellers can get a single cabin without extra cost.

Have a look at these adventure cruises but book soon as space is limited.

(And, if you like to have your own room on land-based trips without paying extra, you'd better let me know and I will add you to the solo-traveller list for when our giant no-single supplement sale arrives).

In 982 AD Eirik Rauða, better known to us as Erik the Red, was banished from Iceland and sailed to Greenland to start the Norse settlements there. This expedition cruise follows in his wake, sailing from Reykjavik to Greenland's east coast. Here you will explore the fjords and get your first encounters with Arctic wildlife such as polar bears, seals, and humpback whales.

Rounding Cape Farewell you sail through beautiful still waters fed by calving glaciers and lined by craggy peaks, before discovering south Greenland and finding it much like Erik did: fertile green farmland rich in pasture against a backdrop of snowy peaks. Visit the Norse and Inuit settlements at Kujataa UNESCO World Heritage Site as well as Hvalsey, where the church is the best preserved Norse ruin in Greenland. Further up the coast, Brattahlíð welcomes you with its reconstructed Norse church and Viking longhouse.

Travelling north we reach the lush Sermersooq region with its stunning peaks, glaciers, and fjords. During zodiac cruises we keep an eye out for myriad birds and marine mammals before dropping in on Nuuk, the capital of Greenland. Finally, before disembarking in Kangerlussuaq, we explore Kangerlussuatsiaq, the fjord of eternity, by zodiac, ship or kayak.
