Summary : Sail among fjords and glaciers aboard a luxury expedition ship. Discover the polar landscape in all its diversity. Marvel at icebergs carved by wind and wave, sculpted by cold and polished by light.  Watch icy masses change with the light and shimmer all the colors of the rainbow. With their rims of iridescent glaciers, the fjords open onto unspoiled landscapes where the flora and fauna seem untouched by the passage of time. Let your imagination run free during the days at sea in the midst of this vast icy expanse while watching for polar bears, whales, seals, walrus and seabirds.
