Ice Age wildlife

See mammals that have roamed the Arctic since the last Ice Age, including musk oxen and caribou as you explore Greenland.

Greenland’s wildlife

As 80% of Greenland is covered by an inhospitable ice sheet, you’ll discover most wildlife around the ice-free periphery. In the coastal waters, rich in fish, look for humpback whales and seals. Little Auks, Snowy Owls and Greenland Gyrfalcons are among the birds you’ll be on the lookout for here.

Ice-hewn landscapes

Greenland’s topography includes tundra landscapes, immense glacial valleys and a vast ice sheet second in size only to Antarctica’s.

Expedition Team Greenland

The Expedition Team will share the fascinating geology behind the glacial landforms you’ll find in Greenland in lectures or as you explore them on walks and on landings. They’ll accompany you to a kaffemik – a traditional coffee morning or - take you kayaking in the icy waters.

Expedition Ships to Greenland

Travel safely and in comfort aboard our hybrid-powered expedition ships and ships modified for better sustainability. Our smaller ice-class ships allow you to experience more remote and unspoilt polar destinations, and these are the ships you’ll travel with to Greenland.

Helping local communities

On a Hurtigruten Expeditions cruise to Greenland you’ll be helping to improve the lives of Greenlandic children. The Hurtigruten Foundation supports the work of local charities and development projects wherever we travel.
