365 Arctic sailings
According to Arctic program co-ordinator Florian Piper, ‘due to the great success of our 7 night Aurora Borealis voyages with Rembrandt van Rijn and Noorderlicht in North Norway, we will continue to offer departures in the winter months from November till April making us the only polar operator with a 365 days all year round expedition cruise program in the Arctic.’
Later in the season, Oceanwide’s vessels will operate in the Scoresbysund, which is a popular destination ideally suited for activity minded passengers and photographers. With three-masted sailing vesel Rembrandt van Rijn we offer passenger exchange in Nerlerit Inaat (Constable Pynt) and flights to and from Keflavik, he added.
