Greenland Cruise Holidays

Take a small ship expedition cruise to explore the extensive coastline of this immense island. Boasting spectacular fjords and some incredible icebergs, Greenland is best explored by an ice-strengthened ship. Travelling ashore by Zodiac makes it possible to land at otherwise inaccessible bays to hike through pristine wilderness.

Visiting remote Inuit communities is also a highlight, providing a rare chance to learn about the isolated way of life north of the Arctic Circle. There are also often excellent opportunities for sighting whales, walrus and other Arctic wildlife. Small ship cruises in Greenland operate predominantly during the summer months of July and August. However, in September, as the Arctic summer turns to autumn, you may be lucky enough to experience the optimum atmospheric conditions which produce the aurora borealis – a magical bonus to any Greenland voyage.

Our cruise holidays in Greenland are part of our Arctic Voyages programme and include small ship expedition cruises from Spitsbergen along the coast of East Greenland, itineraries combining Greenland with the Canadian High Arctic, and adventures through Scoresby Sund. For something a little different, sail between Ilulissat and Narsaq on the west coast on board the Greenlandic ferry MV Sarfaq Ittuk. A comfortable yet functional ship, she offers an invaluable service to the local communities as well as transport for visitors to this magnificent coastline.

An adventurous spirit and a flexible attitude are the key components of any Greenland expedition cruise, as you discover remote areas, ice-choked waters and an insight into Inuit culture.
