A group of Arctic tourists with an experienced expedition leader run into two unique arctic animals: the hardy muskoxen and a herd of reindeer.
Take a trip on the most adventurous cruise ship in the world, MS Fram. Built to handle ice-choked waters and narrow channels, this small but tough ship whisks her guests into the seas surrounding Antarctica and the high Arctic. Set sail on a 12-day expedition spanning more than 1,700 miles, from Reykjavik, Iceland, through the fjords of southern Greenland, then north to Ilulissat, "the iceberg capital of the world." It's a voyage that promises stunning scenery for its 195 guests, and huge challenges that will put Fram and her crew to the test.
