Voyage from Iceland to Greenland’s remote east coast and experience the wildlife and epic grandeur of the world’s largest national park and wilderness fjord system.
The majesty of East Greenland
From Reykjavik, we sail across the Denmark Strait to the spectacular east coast of Greenland. Our first destination is Scoresbysund, an immense system of fjords and glaciers that fans out over 24,000 square miles. You’ll spend the next four days exploring this vast pristine region.
Placid dark waters reflect the soaring mountains around us as we seek out whales and other marine wildlife, including seals which can sometimes be spotted relaxing on ice floes. Look out for avian life including Brünnich's Guillemots, Snowy Owls and Greenlandic Gyrfalcons.
The largest national park in the world
Next, we explore the Northeast Greenland National Park, an International Biosphere Reserve. Visitor numbers are limited in this 375,000 square mile wilderness region, and Hurtigruten’s expertise and experience means you’ll be one of the lucky few to experience this Arctic Eden.
In the absence of people, wildlife abounds in this peaceful haven, and you might see Arctic hares, muskoxen and even polar bears. The waters are filled with sparkling blue-hued icebergs, and you’ll get up close to nature on guided walks and kayak trips. This expedition cruise to one of the most remote places on the planet will be an unforgettable experience.
