Our voyage starts in Narsarsuaq, South Greenland. We will visit Ivittuut which means "the grassy place" in Greenlandic; and is situated in one of Greenland's most beautiful areas, the Arsuk fjord complex, before we will cross the sea towards the Canadian province Labrador and Newfoundland. We will visit places where you will learn about the history of the people in Newfoundland and you will get insight in the stories of some Indian tribes.
Torngat Mountains National Park
During this voyage we will spend some days in the Torngat Mountains National Park which protects one of the most spectacular mountain- and coastal areas of Canada. The national park is a unique site, with a great variation in tundra vegetation and fauna. This region has been very important for the Inuit for serval thousands years and still today local Inuit are hunting in the areas of the Torngat Mountains.
Gros Morne National Park
One of the many highlights during our voyage in Newfoundland is The Gros Morne National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Here the landscape has deep valleys, steep cliffs, sandy beaches and the spectacular fjord system is formed by the last ice age. This is the home to the rich fauna in the area, moose, caribous, foxes, black bears, ptarmigans and eagles are very common in the area.
Along the way we will take you to places with archaeological remains and you will get an insight in the very interesting Viking history. L´Anse au Meadows is truly a unique place, it was Anne and Helge Ingstad who found the old Viking settlement by following evidence they got by a close reading of the Viking sagas, and proved that Columbus was in fact not the first to discover America.
St. Johns, Canada
Our voyage ends in St. Johns, Canada. The expedition team on board will share their knowledge with you, and possibly your will share your impressions with your fellow travellers during the evenings up at deck or in the observation lounge. We look forward to take you on an adventure were you will experience the great variety of Canada.
