Visit isolated yet beautiful regions in Greenland on this unmissable adventure.
Astonishing natural wonders and fascinating settlements far removed from
modern day life await your discovery. Experience scenic cruising at its best in
Prins Christiansund; sail amongst icebergs and glistening scenery on a tour to
the Qooroq Glacier; meet friendly local people; and more. All topped off with
calls into Iceland and Scotland.
Your itinerary begins with two days in Iceland. First is
the capital, Reykjavík, from where you can explore a
host of natural wonders, including those found on
the famous Golden Circle route: Gullfoss Waterfall,
the Geysir region and Thingvellir National Park.
Alternatively, visit the spectacular Blue Lagoon Spa to
bathe in mineral-rich waters. Picturesque Ísafjörður
follows, from where you can tour to the isolated,
unspoilt Hornstrandir Nature Reserve, one of the
most inaccessible areas in Iceland.
After a day at sea you’ll arrive in Greenland, where
you’ll begin your expedition with a day of scenic
cruising. See mighty mountains, glistening glaciers,
majestic icebergs and plummeting waterfalls as you
traverse the glassy waters of Prins Christiansund.
Then you’ll sail Torssukátak, a stunning fjord home to
many fascinating formations, including the
Thumbnail and Baroness cliffs.
You’ll arrive into Qaqortoq the next day. You can join
an accompanied hike along the shores of the Great
Lake, taking you closer to Greenland’s Arctic
landscapes. Or perhaps take up the chance to
experience Kaffe-Mik, a tradition where Greenlanders
celebrate an event by inviting friends and relatives for
coffee, tea and cake.
Next is Narsarsuaq. Home to lush valleys and rich
flora and fauna it’s a hiker’s dream. Walk up to Signal
Hill and you’ll be presented with beautiful views of
the Tunulliarfik Fjord. Elsewhere, you’ll find the
magnificent Qooroq Ice Fjord. Tons of ice break off
the Qooroq Glacier into the fjord every day, which
creates fascinating turquoise icebergs. On a tour
you’ll be able to sail quietly amongst them.
Continue to Nanortalik, Greenland’s most southerly
town, where steep mountainsides, picturesque fjords
and small woodlands make up the beautiful
surroundings. Take a step back in time on a visit to
the Open Air Museum, which showcases traditional
buildings, clothing, kayaks and more, giving an
insight into how local people lived and worked.
Afterwards, delight in majestic scenery as you depart
Greenland via the Tasermiut Fjord. Relax with time at
sea before your final call into Scrabster – gateway to
Fjords | Arctic, Iceland, Greenland & Norway
