Europe & Arctic
Arctic 2020 Season - MV Greg Mortimer
Life explodes during the brief Arctic summer and sea kayaks are a superb way to explore the amazing wildlife and coastline of these fascinating northern wonderlands. Polar bears, seals, walrus, millions of migratory birds, fjords and icebergs await us on our High Arctic voyages.
Septermber - October
Explore the outer islands of Scotland as we paddle along wild coastlines, channels and hidden lochs. Visit remote crofting communities, castles and fishing villages and 5,000–year old ancient sites. The Scottish Isles are home to some of Europe’s largest seabird communities, a birdwatcher’s paradise!
Synonymous with Scandinavia, southern Sweden is located between the Baltic sea on the east and the strait of Skagerrak on the west. The strait is an offshoot of the North Sea, influenced by the warmer gulf stream and partially protected by Denmark and Norway. Bohuslän, on Sweden’s west coast, is a mecca for sea kayaking with thousands of islands and skerries to explore. We stay in quaint inns in small fishing villages and camp on remote granite islands as we explore this dramatic “Rock Kingdom”.
Norway is a stunningly beautiful country, known for its fjords, glaciers, high mountains and superb coastal paddling. The country spreads 2000kms from south to north with nearly a third of the country lying north of the Arctic Circle. The Lofoten Islands archipelago stretches north above the Arctic Circle and showcases stunning scenery and quaint fishing villages. We stay in a charming and attractive sea side cottage (traditional Robuer) surrounded by stunning seascapes and mountain peaks and camp one night.
Iceland & Greenland
The majesty and remote landscapes of North East Greenland combined with the remote outer fjords of NW Iceland are the playgrounds for this incredible adventure. Sea kayaks and paddle boards from the comfort of an 80 ft sailboat are a superb way to explore the amazing wildlife and magical light of these fascinating northern wonderlands. Polar bears, seals, muskox, millions of migratory birds, fjords and icebergs await.
