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.
