Full description

The world's largest island is home to the planet's greatest fjords and most active glaciers outside Antarctica. You'll be dwarfed by the sheer size and scale of nature in Greenland, where wildlife and the forces of nature reign supreme. Place names such as the Fjord of Eternity and Cape Farewell hint at the grandeur that lies ahead, with diverse icebergs and dramatic mountains a constant theme of your voyage.

Marvel at the abundance of wildflowers, keep your eyes peeled for whales and other marine wildlife, and encounter an ancient culture surviving in a modern world. From historic Norse and Viking settlements to remote Inuit communities that still use dogsleds as their main method of transportation, a voyage to Greenland is unlike any other. The rugged landscape, dominated by dramatic fjords, imposing glaciers, towering mountains and lush valleys, offers numerous photographic opportunities and wonderful memories.

Itinerary & Vessel

Itinerary & Vessel

Day 1: Reykjavik, Iceland

Your adventure begins with an overnight stay in thoroughly-modern Reykjavik, the world's northernmost capital city.

Days 2: Embarkation

In the afternoon you will board the vessel and begin your expedition. Get ready for a great adventure ahead!

Days 3: At sea

Cruising north across the Denmark Strait, your Expedition Team will prepare you for the adventure. Learn about the history and politics of the Arctic, the wildlife that call the area home, and the geology and climate of the area. You may also observe seabirds following the ship and possibly whales that frequent these cold waters.

Days 4-5: East Greenland

Your exploration of Greenland begins in East Greenland, one of the least visited and most remote parts of the island. Your days sailing along the coast will be guided by weather and ice conditions, with each day and each excursion presenting new adventures. The region is a sight to behold, boasting a mesmerising maze of vast glaciers, steep mountains and breath-taking fjords. Conditions permitting, you may visit Skjoldungen, where you can cruise between mountains to view glaciers deep within the fjords. The narrow part of the fjord provides an ideal place to put the Zodiacs in the water for a more in-depth exploration.

Days 6-7: South Greenland

Explore Greenland’s fertile southern coast, nicknamed Arctic Patagonia, a region as rich in spectacular scenery as it is in history and culture. This is where Erik the Red gave Greenland its name, everywhere you look offers vistas of icy waters set against a backdrop of soaring mountains, clear waterfalls and lush, green valleys. Scattered around the shores of the fjord system are several small settlements, from the past and present day.

Days 8-13: West Greenland

Boasting spectacular glaciers, mountainous landscapes and vibrant communities, the west coast of Greenland will leave you awestruck. Explore bays and channels by zodiac, whilst discovering quaint villages in some of Greenland’s most picturesque places. The west coast is home to Nuuk, the charming capital of Greenland, where you will have time to wander its historic streets. Here you can also visit the church and see the statue of Hans Egede, the missionary who founded the settlement. Stop by the national museum to see the famous Greenlandic mummies, found under a rocky outcrop in 1972.

Day 14: Disembark in Kangerlussuaq and flight to Reykjavik, Iceland

Disembark in Kangerlussuaq, before boarding your charter flight back to Iceland. Upon arrival in Reykjavik you will be transferred to your hotel.

Day 15: Depart Reykjavik, Iceland

Make your way home at your leisure or spend some time exploring this artistic city.
