    Spitsbergen (including Hornsund, Liefdefjord, Raudfjord, Moellerhafen, Ny-Alesund, Prins Karls Forland)

    Spitsbergen, Iceland and Greenland with its seldom-visited east coast: three worlds, one adventure. Here, the BREMEN takes full advantage of its highest ice class – and the crew members can bring their years of polar experience to bear. Tromsoe, the “gateway to the Arctic Ocean”, opens up the Nordic realm to you. Inspired by the same pioneering spirit that fuelled Willem Barents, the BREMEN will head for Spitsbergen, which the Dutch explorer discovered in the late 16th century. The compass needle points to adventure. And every nautical mile tells of great heroic feats. This group of islands – with the peaked mountains that inspired its name, mighty glaciers, deep fjords and untouched wilderness – is the perfect terrain for passionate pioneers. The Zodiacs will take you right to the heart of the adventure when the weather and ice permit you to explore the natural surroundings. With a little luck, polar bears, whales, Arctic foxes and seals will appear for intensive wildlife encounters. The backdrop is provided by striking mountain ranges such as those in Hornsund. The glaciers of the Svalbard archipelago often change significantly within just a few years – and it’s not just glaciologists who find them fascinating. The mighty Monaco Glacier, which calves into the Liefdefjord, is a striking example. Approaching the edge of the glacier, which reaches up to 40 m (131 ft) high, is an unforgettable experience. The colour play of Raudfjord will also trigger a wave of enthusiasm with its red-tinged mountain slopes. You will feel the power and sensitivity of raw natural beauty in this overwhelming panorama. “Lloyd’s Hotel”, a former refuge in Moellerhafen, is testament to the deeds of members of past expeditions. A visit to Ny-Alesund will show you just how closely the pioneering spirit of the past and of the present can exist side by side. It was from here that Roald Amundsen and Umberto Nobile set out in 1926 in the airship Norge and were the first people to reach the North Pole. Today, it is a research station focused on climate change and its effects on plants and animals. Does the future of our planet depend on this “laboratory of the Arctic”? Again and again, the captain and crew will react spontaneously to provide you with unforgettable experiences – for example, on the small island of Prins Karls Forland, where walruses often gather in herds.

    Relaxation at sea
    Passing Jan Mayen

    The silhouette of the archipelago will remain visible as the BREMEN heads for the Arctic Ocean – until you see the inhospitable island of Jan Mayen and its volcano from the deck: a sight that will get you in the mood for the power and magic of Iceland’s forces of nature.

    Wednesday, 24.07.2019

    Reykjavik/Iceland, from 8.00 to 19.00 hrs

    The many sides of Iceland will enchant you: sparse and lush, grey and green, bubbling and icy. The impressive forces of nature beneath the country’s soil are reflected in the name of the capital, Reykjavik, or “Smoky Bay”. The largest volcanic island on the planet is a wonderland all of its own. Gain some insights on the trip to see Gullfoss, geysers and Thingvellir*. Marvel at one of the country’s highest waterfalls, hot springs with fountains of water that shoot up as high as 15 m (49 ft) and Iceland’s first national park. The scenic flight over the island of fire and ice* will give you a bird’s-eye view of its scenic contrasts – carpets of green moss, glacial rivers and Eyjafjallajoekull. Go snorkelling between two continents* and take in the amazing water-filled Silfra Rift. When you visit this area where the continental plates meet, you will experience Europe and North America at the same time, geologically speaking.

    Eastern coast of Greenland (Tasiilaq, Skjoldungen Sound)

    A pure expedition feeling will accompany you throughout your exploration of Greenland. In the world of the Inuit, the BREMEN will first head to the seldom-visited east coast, where the unpredictable ice conditions will determine what happens. Raw, untouched, barely inhabited: with its rugged mountain and fjord landscape, Tasiilaq is a hiker’s paradise. Here, as on the entire route, you will have many good opportunities for whale watching. This will also be the case in the Skjoldungen Sound, surrounded by glaciers, where you will land with the Zodiacs and embark on a hike with your experts in the lush tundra of southern Greenland.

    Passage through Prins Christian Sund (depending on ice)

    Western coast of Greenland (Paamiut, Sermilinguaqfjord, Qeqertarsuaq, Disko Bay, Sisimiut)

    On the western coast of Greenland, Paamiut, with its old colonial buildings at the harbour, exudes its own unique charm. There is a large population of humpback and fin whales at this time of year. Also make sure to turn your gaze to the skies: in Sermilinguaqfjord, you can watch numerous guillemots and kittiwakes nesting in the steep rock faces. Your encounters with the Inuit culture will be steeped in history – reflected in sites such as the whalebone gateway at Qeqertarsuaq. This town on Disko Island was once a flourishing whalers’ settlement and is surrounded by fascinating hiking routes. And then you will see it in front of you – the ice-covered Disko Bay, one of the highlights of any expedition to Greenland with the BREMEN. The Zodiacs will be used again here to take you out among the icebergs, which drift like natural sculptures as the Arctic sun bathes the landscape in a magical light. A combination of the traditional and the contemporary awaits you in the small town of Sisimiut. Go on a hike and follow in the footsteps of the whalers, whose old stone houses from the 18th century still remain. The colonial quarter and the brightly coloured wooden houses will stay with you for a long time, as will the many impressions gathered during this Arctic explorer’s dream with the BREMEN.

    72 days of pioneering spirit. The circumnavigation of the Arctic


    Your own personal Arctic legend

    They still exist – those blank spots on the map. Places where you feel like the first explorers as you set foot on deserted territory. The Arctic: a destination for pioneers, a landscape of natural extremes and a unique habitat for diverse wildlife. North of the Arctic Circle, discover the true meaning of the term “natural adventure” as you embark on an incredible first-of-its-kind cruise.

    So that you can experience the Arctic in all its fascinating glory, the BREMEN is combining its Northwest Passage and Northeast Passage cruises in one season – for the first time ever. The ship will circumnavigate the Arctic from Tromsoe to Bergen via Spitsbergen and Greenland. Small, manoeuvrable and with a shallow draught and the highest ice class for passenger ships (E4): the BREMEN is in its element here. We have used our extensive experience to plan this extraordinary expedition, which will write a new chapter in seafaring history.

    Whether you opt for the complete circumnavigation of the Arctic in 72 days or one of the three individual cruises, you can be a part of this epic adventure and join the ranks of the great pioneers.
