Isbjorn is heading NORTH in 2018. After wintering in Sweden & preparing Isbjorn for the Arctic, we'll set sail for Scotland, Norway and the far north. After exploring the Lofoten Islands in Norway, we'll stage in Tromso for the 500-mile passage to Svalbard, that mythical land of polar bears, walrus and icebergs. From there, it's 1,200 miles to Reykjavik, Iceland, then back across the Atlantic to Ireland. Don't miss this opportunity of a lifetime to join us and visit one of the last great wildernesses on Earth - before it's gone.

2018 #IsbjornArctic Passages
$5,000 // 10 Days // 4 Crew Spaces. Join Isbjorn on the first leg of our voyage towards the Arctic and explore Sweden's 'best coast,' cross the north sea, and discover the remote, Viking-explored out-islands of Orkney, in Scotland.
$6,000 // 18 Days // 4 Crew Spaces. Join Isbjorn in Scotland for our passage north through the Arctic Circle at 66º North and on to the incredible Lofoten Islands & Tromso, Norway, where the sun never sets! Photo by James Austrums.
$6,000 // 14 Days // 4 Crew Spaces. This is the big one, off the deep end to the literal end of the earth, the farthest north you can sail before the pack ice. Isbjorn will earn her name on this way, as we go in search of polar bears and follow in the footsteps of the Arctic explorers in the farthest reaches of Norway. Photo courtesy Magnus Ormestad.
$6,000 // 21 Days // 4 Crew Spaces. Sail with Isbjorn as close as we'll get to Greenland this year as we make the BIG offshore passage, entirely in Arctic waters, from Svalbard south to Iceland (it's not often you'll get to say you sailed 'south' to Iceland!). Photo by Magnus Ormestad.
$6,000 // 16 Days // 4 Crew Spaces. Join Isbjorn just below the Arctic Circle in Iceland for the first of our voyages back south and to warmer climes. We'll swing by the Faroe Islands on the way if we have time and good weather, then perhaps pop into Scotland for some of the world's best whisky before finishing in the Irish city of Dublin for a proper pint of Guinness!

2018 Fall Passage South
$6,000 // 14 Days // 4 Crew Spaces. Isbjorn's last passage of 2018. We'll depart Dublin and sail south through the Irish Sea and past the famous Fastnet Rock. If we have to, we'll duck into Glandore (Donald Street's home town), or Crookhaven to wait for a good weather window to cross Biscay and make landfall in Lisbon, where Isbjorn will stage for her return across the Atlantic.
