Journey deep into fjords with spectacular glaciers and icebergs as you explore the rugged coast of Greenland, accompanied by an experienced Expedition Team.

The exciting expedition voyage begins in Reykjavik before crossing the Denmark Strait which connects the Atlantic and Arctic oceans. Cruise along Greenland's rugged eastern coast to the Skoldungen Fjord and Prince Christian Sound where towering mountains overlook floating icebergs.

Learn about daily life in a Greenlandic Inuit community on a visit to Aapilattoq, then explore Nanortalik which lies in a scenic area surrounded by steep mountainsides and is Greenland’s most southerly town. The town’s name means the 'place of Polar Bears', which refers to the Polar Bears that used to be seen floating offshore on summer’s ice floes. See the contrasting hot springs and icebergs on Uunartoq Island and explore the picturesque harbour town of Qaqortoq and Nuuk, Greenland's current capital.
