Explore the World’s Wonders on an Expedition Superyacht Charter

19 June 2024

In recent years, a captivating trend has emerged. Expedition superyacht trips have transcended travel to become transformative experiences, whisking guests away to the farthest reaches of the globe. Imagine cruising through icy fjords, witnessing breaching whales, and arctic animals and exploring untouched landscapes – all from the comfort of a meticulously designed vessel. These journeys allow guests to venture beyond the ordinary and immerse themselves in the raw beauty of our planet.

But there’s more to these expeditions than meets the eye. Beyond the thrill of discovery lies a profound impact on our self-view and worldview. If you’re ready to embark on your own version of an expedition, Simpson Superyachts offers unparalleled superyacht charter services that turn dreams into reality.


Destinations and Itineraries

Iceland: Discover Unrivalled Natural Wonders

Iceland, with its cool climate and tucked-away location, invites intrepid travellers. On board a superyacht, guests can discover why this country’s unrivalled natural wonders should be on everyone’s charter wish list. Set aside 10 days for the adventure of your lifetime. Depart from Reykjavik and visit the iconic Blue Lagoon for a relaxing soak, then sail to the Snaefellsnes Peninsula, lava fields, black sand beaches and the mystical Snaefellsjokull glacier. Then cruise along the South Coast, witnessing Seljalandsfoss and Skogafoss waterfalls to end the trip.

South Pole: Connecting with the raw power of nature

Standing at the southernmost point on Earth is a humbling experience. Antarctica’s interior is an expanse of ice and solitude. The itinerary involves sailing to the heart of the continent, where ice fields stretch as far as the eye can see. Set aside at least 3 weeks for the expedition where you depart from Ushuaia, Argentina and head for the Sole Pole. During the adventure, visit research stations which provide glimpses into scientific endeavours. Sail through the Weddell Sea, volcanic caldera and explore the South Shetland Islands where wildlife thrives.

Norway and Greenland: Catching the Northern Lights

Greenland’s rugged coast reveals towering icebergs, sculpted by time and tides. Plan around 14 days for your adventure from Nuuk to Uummannaq Island. As you sail, keep watch for polar bears patrolling the ice, whales breaching, and seabirds riding the wind. Discover the colourful houses of Sisimiut, Disko Bay, the Ilulissat Icefjord, Eqi Glacier and enjoy a helicopter excursion to the remote Inuit settlements. Go in the wintertime for Northern Lights viewing.
