Cruise Overview

Greenland’s fjords and colorful 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 and have unforgettable experiences with the local people, perhaps during 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 expert Expedition Team will find the best places to land, whether we’re scouting for wildlife at Kvanefjord or approaching a glacier at Vaigat Sound.
