Greenland Cruise Holidays

Take a voyage in Greenland and explore the extensive coastline of this immense island. Boasting spectacular fjords and some incredible icebergs, it is best explored by an ice-strengthened ship or a much smaller sailing schooner. 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. Cruises in Greenland are predominantly during the summer months of July and August. However, in September, as the Arctic summer turns into 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 cruise holidays from Spitsbergen along the coast of East Greenland, itineraries combining Greenland with the Canadian High Arctic, as well as a sailing adventure through Scoresby Sund. For something a little different, sail between Illulissat 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 cruise, as you discover remote areas, ice-choked waters and an insight into Inuit culture.
