Jan Mayen

Remote Volcanic Island

The isolated Norwegian volcanic island of Jan Mayen, located in the Arctic Ocean between Norway, Iceland and Spitsbergen is the perfect breeding ground for many Arctic seabirds. The imposing slopes and glaciers of the snow-capped Beerenberg volcano drain into the icy sea. Visit the Norwegian weather station on Jan Mayen or take a walk to the remains of a 17th-century Dutch whaling station.

Expedition cruises to Jan Mayen

Jan Mayen can only be easily reached with an expedition cruise in combination with Spitsbergen, Iceland and Greenland . Sailing along the dramatic coastline of spectacular glaciers, magnificent fjords and icebergs, the most interesting places are within easy reach. With Zodiacs you will sail through deserted ice landscapes to discover the white world up close and visit a local settlement. Expedition cruises in this region run from May through September, the best time to spot whales, walruses, and polar bears. Many birds already leave at the end of August.
