Epic Greenland Expedition Cruise

From Iceland to Greeland

Join an exhilarating expedition cruise from Reykjavik to Kangerlussuaq, following in the footsteps of the Vikings along the magnificent coastline of Earth’s largest islands.

After crossing the Denmark Strait, one of the first stops on your voyage might be at the serene Skjoldungen Fjord in the east of Greenland. A remote and breathtakingly beautiful fjord, some 300km from the nearest village. From here on you set sail towards Greenland’s southernmost point, Cape Farewell. Renowned for its challenging weather, which commonly features large swells and gale-force winds. The southern fjords of Greenland offer a very different environment to the chilly north of the country. The lush green hills are the reason why the Norse gave the island the name Greenland. If conditions allow, you might have a chance to visit the ancient remains of Brattahlíð, the former farmstead of Erik the Red, founder of the first European settlement on Greenland (c. 985).

West Greenland, often called the birthplace of icebergs, boasts spectacular glaciers flowing from the Greenland ice sheet into the ocean. Marvel at these stunning formations on land or venture into the fjords during a zodiac cruise. Making their way through the maze of ice you might spot Fin Whales, Minkes, Humpbacks, and Belugas. On land, look out for Arctic Wolves, Foxes, Hares, and the majestic Muskox. Along the coast, vibrant villages offer a glimpse into local life and ancient culture, blending incredible scenery with warm hospitality for an unparalleled experience.
