Iceland, South Greenland & East Canada

From the world’s youngest volcano to some of the oldest rocks found anywhere on Earth, you’ll encounter traditional Inuit communities whose strong cultures have remained relatively unchanged for tens of thousands of years.

Since days shorten in the Arctic, we have great oppurtunities to catch a glimpse of the northern lights, Aurora Borealis. Sail around Surtsey, the world's youngest volcanic island, kayak through spectacular Tasermiut Fjord and enjoy traditional Kaffemilk with friendly Inuit locals in south Greenland. Keep a watch out for whales, seals, foxes and nesting bird colonies. Explore the magnificent and remote fjords in Torngat Mountains National Park, home to polar bears and caribou, and visit 1000-year-old UNESCO-protected Viking settlements.

Join us on our first expedition from Iceland to South Greenland, and all the way down East Coast Canada. We’re excited about this trip and we can’t wait to share it with you. It’s a fine way to celebrate the end our inaugural polar season on board our new purpose-built expedition vessel, the Greg Mortimer.

    Day 4-5
