Island Time
But Leave Your Flip-Flops at Home
Does your mind wander to coconuts and luaus and sunburns when you hear the word ‘island’? Our favorite islands are far more than your ordinary tourist trap. Our islands offer gorgeous landscapes, unique character, fascinating wildlife, and millennia of local culture and traditions. Explore the volcanic landscapes of the Azores, the Viking history of Greenland, or Spitsbergen’s massive fjord systems. But leave your flip-flops at home – these islands are for adventurous explorers only. You’ll still come home with a changed attitude – and tales of adventure – and plenty of photos to wow your friends.

Not all volcanic islands are the same. This new itinerary features island-hopping in the Atlantic. Discover ancient pyramids and Columbus’ last port in the Canary Islands before his arrival in North America. On the island of Madeira, hike the hills above Funchal, a city set within a natural amphitheater. Or visit wineries that have sprung from the rich black volcanic soil in the Azores.

Who says islands have to be tropical to be appealing and fascinating? While circumnavigating the remote island of Spitsbergen in the Svalbard archipelago, you’ll be less than 600 nautical miles from the Geographic North Pole. Here, people barely outnumber polar bears, glaciers calve icebergs into the ocean, and during the summer, the midnight sun turns night into day.
