Like no other polar destination, Greenland offers close interaction and unique cultural experiences together with breathtaking nature. In the Disco Bay area, colourful villages cling to rough, rocky hills surrounding the inland ice. 80% of Greenland is covered by ice and we recommend you always have your camera handy as icebergs of every imaginable shape and size may appear at any time.
The World’s biggest island
Starting in Iceland, we sail to Greenland’s southern coast where you have a chance to discover this rugged, mountainous land with the enormous Ice Sheet at its centre and welcoming people at its core. We will visit lush settlements in the south so you can experience the culture and way of life first hand.
Explore the heart of Greenland
Then onwards to the highlights of Disco Bay. Greenland’s arctic wilderness offers some of the most spectacular and pristine scenery anywhere on earth. It is the largest island on the planet, and its frozen coastline has witnessed the birth of some of nature’s most breathtaking creations. Here the struggle for survival has imbued local culture with a healthy respect for the environment.
See this unique interaction of man and nature first hand, as we sail through a landscape rich in culture, history and spectacular wildlife, towards the northern lands of the Midnight sun. This expedition was created to introduce you to the amazing variety of Greenland; from wonders of nature, to small villages and larger towns. Experience Greenland’s fascinating culture, visit historical sites from the Viking era, and enjoy the beautiful Ilulissat Icefjord.
