Sail from Iceland to Greenland’s remote east coast and experience the epic grandeur of the world’s largest wilderness fjord system.
The majesty of Greenland’s fjords
From Reykjavik, we sail across the Denmark Strait to the spectacular east coast of Greenland. Our destination is Scoresbysund, an immense system of fjords and glaciers that fans out over 24,000 square miles. You’ll spend the next nine 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.
Scoresbysund is uninhabited, apart from for the settlement of Ittoqqortoormiit. With a population of fewer than 500, it’s one of the most remote settlements on the planet. Get a insight into the lives of Ittoqqortoormiit’s hardy residents and discover the history of this tiny settlement.
Wilderness that’s perfect for adventure
Your expedition cruise comes with a host of included and optional activities to immerse you in the environment. We’ll make the best of the conditions, ensuring as many shore landings, nature walks, kayaking tours and wildlife sightings as possible. Onboard lectures from our knowledgeable Expedition Team will further enhance your experience.
