Full description

This is where Erik the Red gave Greenland its name, everywhere you look offers vistas of icy blue waters set against a backdrop of soaring mountains, crystal clear waterfalls and lush valleys.  Up in the air, you may find yourself ascending cascading coastal glaciers and stepping out onto the vast polar plateau of the Greenland Ice Sheet.

For those wanting to maximise the adventure element of the trip, there is also the opportunity to add on a mountain biking, camping and Alpine kayaking (for an additional charge).

Itinerary & Accommodation

Itinerary & Accommodation

Day 1: Arrive Reykjavik, flight to Narsarsuaq & embarkation

Your adventure begins in Reykjavik, Iceland. Meet with your fellow expeditioners at the airport and board your charter flight to Narsarsuaq, Greenland before embarking the ship.

Days 2-7: Southern Greenland

Explore the highlights of Southern Greenland. Many factors play a role in shaping the expedition's itinerary, including sea, ice and weather conditions, but your Expedition Team will ensure you see as much as possible with regular shore landings and Zodiac cruises.

As stunning as the polar landscapes are from your ship, they’re even more striking from the air; flying provides access to places to you could not otherwise access by ship or Zodiac. Conditions permitting, you may have the opportunity for heli-hiking and a heli-landing on the Greenland ice sheet. Each day your expedition team will plan excursions deep in the southern fjords systems, which may also include a chance to dip a kayak in the water. Each included activity provides a different way to experience the diverse, dramatic landscapes and rich Arctic wildlife on offer in the region.

Day 8: Disembark in Narsarsuaq & flight to Reykjavik, Iceland

Disembark in Narsarsuaq and spend the day visiting surrounding sites. Possible options include the villages of Igaliku, where you can wander the ruins of the Gardar cathedral, the largest church in Greenland in the Middle Ages and Brattahlíð, where you can explore the remains of Erik the Red’s estate. In the evening, board your charter flight back to Reykjavik, where you will be transferred to a hotel in nearby Keflavik.

Day 9: Depart Reykjavik

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