G Adventures has created a Svalbard and Greenland itinerary after axing two charter sailings aimed at the Chinese market amid the coronavirus outbreak.

The operator is offering a 13-day sailing on the 134-berth Expedition, departing on August 19 from Longyearbyen, Norway, and calling at Ittoqqorttoormiit, Greenland, and Spitsbergen, Norway. Prices start from £2,299.

Brian Young, G Adventures’ managing director for Europe, the Middle East and Africa, called the opportunity for agents “a one-off”. He said: “With the lead-in price, it is a big opportunity for agents and our customers.

“The ship has 134 passengers, so you will get to know everybody on board – it is a different experience. It is the only chance agents have to get that sailing at that price.”
