Additional Information

Inspired by the very first Arctic explorers, journey to the far reaches of Norway’s northern tip led by RCGS Explorer-in-Residence, filmmaker, photographer and world-renowned underwater explorer, Jill Heinerth. A veteran of over thirty years of exploration, Jill has made TV series for PBS, National Geographic and the BBC. On this exclusive RCGS departure, you’ll have the opportunity to hone in on your photography skills with tips and tricks from Heinerth herself all while exploring the Arctic wonders of the Vesteralen Islands. The otherworldly archipelago sits within the Arctic Circle and offers an intoxicating cocktail of fjords and mountains all teeming with wildlife, from soaring eagles to sea otters and reindeer. Venture out to the more remote islands and visit local fishing villages, then try your hand at ice fishing. Bring science to life during a visit to the Andoya Space Center – which regularly launches rockets to study the aurora – and attempt your own mission simulation. Suit up in arctic oversuits and head out on a whale watching excursion in search of Humpbacks, Fin, and Killer Whales. Watch a dazzling light display in the sky as the Northern Lights dance above you in the evenings. As your adventure comes to an end, you’ll enjoy a traditional meal around a roaring fire – a fitting goodbye to this remote region.
