Scenic Eclipse to Sail the Arctic in 2020

Scenic Eclipse

Scenic has announced its lineup of Arctic itineraries for the upcoming Scenic Eclipsewhich launches in January 2019, with destinations ranging from the Russian White Sea and the fjords of Norway to the Arctic Islands of Svalbard, Greenland and Iceland, and the Northwest Passage.

Highlights include several itineraries that allow guests to discover Greenland, the world’s largest island, whose transformation from frozen tundra and coastline to an island of massive ice calving and melting has been the focus of environmental scientists.

Scenic’s Pristine Greenland 11-day cruise departs Reykjavik, Iceland on August 5, 2020, and spends nine days exploring southern Greenland’s wilderness. From the fjords along the east coast to the capital city of Nuuk to Disko Bay, site of one of the world’s fastest moving glaciers, Ilulissat Icefjord, guests will have the opportunity to see this untouched Arctic wilderness and get to know its natural wonders, wildlife and Viking history.
