There aren’t many people who get the chance to set foot on the rarely visited island of Jan Mayer – this foggy nature reserve is set deep in the North Atlantic Ocean and is inhabited by less than 20 Norwegian military and metrology personnel. You also might not expect to see a volcano in the Arctic, but you will, amid glaciers and ice. Throw in the usual (albeit amazing) suspects – unforgettable Zodiac rides, spectacular fjords and time spent searching for illusive polar bears and other iconic wildlife, and you’ll find that this is not your standard Arctic adventure.
