Exciting, exhilarating, memorable -- welcome to Expedition Experiences by Seabourn. Zodiac, kayaking or hiking activities enable you to experience the wonders of nature up close; in-depth cultural, ethnographic and archaeological discoveries connect you to the human and natural history of Seabourn's world. Each Expedition is expertly planned, professionally operated, and escorted by skilled expedition staff.
Take a scenic Zodiac cruise with the Expedition Team and guided walk ashore to explore the small island of Vigur. Vigur has a great reputation among birdwatchers. The harmonious gathering of thousands of birds on Vigur completes the beautiful landscape -- it is a must-see. Eider ducks, Arctic terns, puffins, black guillemot and many more species make their homes here. This is a prime destination for wildlife. See the island and its wildlife from the water as you skirt the shoreline in the Zodiac; then, step ashore for a guided visit to the bird-nesting areas as well as the local Eider down facility (ethically- and sustainably-harvested down). Refreshments are served at the café. Re-join the ship in Isafjordur, 12 nautical miles away from Vigur (one hour by Zodiac).
Please note: Tour departs from and returns to the ship. It is essential that you wear warm, layered clothing in order to fully enjoy and participate in this excursion. Outer layer should be waterproof and windproof. Bring gloves, a warm hat and a scarf. Bring binoculars. Wear sunglasses and biodegradable sunscreen; bring insect repellent. Bring a waterproof bag for your devices. There are steps to negotiate when (dis)embarking the Zodiac, with assistance offered. Tour generally operates rain or shine but may be canceled in the event of extremely bad weather or unsuitable conditions. Minimum age is 6 years. Hiking opportunities ashore involve easy walking over uneven terrain. Wear sturdy walking shoes.
