Albatros Expeditions is thrilled to present a new and exciting voyage for Summer 2024 – an expedition voyage onboard Ocean Albatros exploring west Greenland and Baffin Island, Nunavut, Canada. This thrilling itinerary offers guests the opportunity to see the vibrant capital cities of Greenland and Nunavut, meet the friendly locals in picturesque towns and villages, as well as exploring breathtaking Arctic nature including glaciers and icebergs, plunging fjords and precipitous mountain ranges.

The voyage begins in Kangerlussuaq, West Greenland, before sailing to to Nuuk, Greenland’s bustling capital. From Nuuk, we will visit Kangaamiut, a small welcoming settlement rich in tradition and culture. From here we will visit the spectacular glaciers of Evighedsfjord, before setting out across the Davis Strait to Iqaluit, the capital and largest city of Nunavut. Meet the locals and soak up the vibrant Inuit culture of the city before visiting Lower Savage, Monumental and Lady Franklin Islands, all hotspots for Arctic wildlife. We will then venture onwards to Pangnirtung, one of Nunavut’s best known communities, situated in spectacular natural surroundings.

After Pangnirtung, we will return to Greenland, arriving in the second largest city of Sisimiut, after which we will proceed northwards to the eternally icy Disko Bay region, visiting the sweeping mountains of Qeqertarsuaq, and the spectacular UNESCO world heritage site of Ilulissat Icefjord. We return to Kangerlussuaq via the small village of Itilleq, where visitors can experience life in a traditional Greenlandic settlement. Visiting two spectacular Arctic nations, this voyage offers the chance to experience Inuit culture on both sides of the Davis Strait, witness the majesty of Arctic wildlife, and explore the breathtaking wilderness of the North.
