On this amazing expedition, you explore the magnificent nature of Greenland in the Scoresbysund fjord. This fjord extends 217 miles inland and offers spectacular scenery and tranquil surroundings.
Understand the meaning of "isolated"
Starting in Iceland's capital Reykjavik, we cross the ocean to visit the most isolated and remote town on Greenland. Ittoqqortoormiit is almost as far as you can get from any other inhabited area in Greenland. For up to nine months of the year, the town is cut off from the outside world, as ice freezes the ocean. Neighbouring the town is the world’s largest national park, a vast wilderness featuring 11,000 miles of rugged coastline.
Enormous and stunningly beautiful
Then, we spend eight days cruising this vast wilderness, including the world's biggest fjord, which features high mountains and basalt cliffs. The awe-inspiring beauty of this enormous fjord system is enhanced further by its native wildlife. You will see birds, musk oxen, reindeer, walrus and maybe even a polar bear. Several places show no evidence that people have ever set foot there before.
We cross the Arctic Ocean and land on Jan Mayen, a volcanic island in the middle of the sea. You'll then have the chance to see some of the Norwegian fjords and the gems along the rugged Norwegian coast.
