Cruise Overview

Greenland’s fjords and colourful settlements

Greenland will take your breath away. Surrounded by a vast network of glaciers and glittering fjords, you’ll cruise past calving icebergs in Disko Bay, hike along pristine beaches and green valleys, and see photogenic wildlife.

Remote settlements and beautiful nature 

Set out from Iceland and explore places along the south and west coasts of Greenland, from peaceful villages to bustling towns and cities. Meet the local people and have unforgettable experiences with them, perhaps including a traditional kaffemik social gathering. 

Phenomenal fjords under the Midnight Sun 

See some of the country’s most picturesque fjords and inlets, including Evighed Fjord and Prince Christian Sound. In true adventure style, your capable Expedition Team will find the best places to land, whether we’re scouting for wildlife at Kvanefjord or approaching a glacier at Vaigat Sound.
