Ultimate Greenland

Picture yourself in Greenland, home to the world’s greatest fjords and some of the most active glaciers outside of Antarctica. You’ll be dwarfed by the sheer size and scale of Greenland´s nature, where the forces of that nature still reign supreme. Join this expedition and brush up on Viking history and immerse yourself in present day Greenlandic Inuit culture. Tundra hiking for all levels is available throughout the voyage. For those who like to get up close and personal and feel the elements, there will be plenty of zodiac cruising among the glaciers and of course, optional kayaking adventures.

This is a sample itinerary. We do our utmost to guarantee the best experience, unfortunately we have no control over the weather or wildlife behaviour. Ports of embarkation and disembarkation and sites may change depending on vessel and departure dates, weather- and ice conditions.

  • East Greenland

    Arrive in the Icelandic capital Reykjavik and make your way to the hotel. You will have the day on your own to explore the city.

    The next day, transfer from hotel to ship for embarkation and bid farewell to Iceland, as your expedition heads east towards Greenland. Your Greenland journey begins with a visit to Tasiilaq and the Ammassalik Fjord. It is the largest community in East Greenland, where the inhabitants may put on a cultural show for us and you’ll also have time to take a scenic hike to the Valley of Flowers. Time and weather permitting, we may go on a search for whales in the Ammassalik Fjord.

    Experience a true Arctic ghost town when we visit the abandoned Skoldungen settlement, where inhabitants were forced to move to larger, more accessible towns in 1961. The narrow part of Skoldungen Fjord is a great place to explore by zodiac. Those who opt for our kayaking program may have an opportunity to get out on the water to glide past icebergs.

  • South Greenland

    Climbers and mountaineers around the world know Tasermiut Fjord, known as one of the world’s most prolific big wall playgrounds. This part of Greenland is one of the most dramatic, being nicknamed the “Arctic Patagonia.” A bit of a history lesson will be provided here, as you learn about the settlements of the area, founded by Erik the Red. As we round Cape Farewell, the southernmost point in Greenland, we will call in at the natural hot springs found in the Uunartoq area, soak in the geothermal waters and watch the icebergs pass by.

  • Greenland’s West Coast

    Heading north, we’ll stop in at some of the quaint Greenlandic villages that dot the islands and fjords of Greenland’s western side. We’ll find friendly faces, local artisans and colorful houses on the wildflower-covered tundra.
    We’ll visit Nuuk, the capital of Greenland, yet home to fewer than 16,000 people. You’ll have time to wander the streets and see the Hans Egede Church and Hans Egede statue near the waterfront, named after the missionary who founded the settlement. You’ll also visit the museum to see the famous Greenlandic mummies.
    The nearby town of Sisimiut is an interesting place to visit as there are more dog sleds here than humans. Evighedsfjorden, meaning Fjord of Eternity, is a favored place for us to put the zodiacs in the water for some more in-depth exploration. This long, deep fjord has very few settlements, so you'll come to appreciate nature in its rawest form. There will be an opportunity for hiking among the towering mountains, and you’ll have plenty of chances to photograph the colorful tundra and dramatic landscapes.
    The coast of Greenland provides many dramatic, mountainous landscapes where fjords open into the sea. We will explore Ilulissat Icefjord, home to one of the world’s fastest moving glaciers. Moving approximately 19m per day, the glacier here provides you with a great opportunity to capture ice crashing into the sea, as it calves more than 35 km3 of ice each year. Continuing along, the Amerdloq Fjord provides you with a chance to stretch your legs by exploring abandoned villages and ancient Thule sites.
