Join a majestic adventure in Greenland and experience summer in the Arctic complete with: gigantic icebergs, settlement visits, the stunning Eqi Glacier and Greenland in a changing climate.

Travelling by sea is still the best way to experience Greenland. The places most worth seeing are situated along the dramatic coast line: small and colourful houses situated on the steep mountains sides down to a fjord, giant glaciers producing enormous icebergs, whilst whales and seals play in the sea. And only a few minutes’ hike away you will find yourself totally isolated, surrounded by wilderness. The people of Greenland live along the coast in small towns and settlements – at summer only accessible from the sea. Their culture, architecture and living conditions are enriched and limited by the harsh nature of the Arctic. On our town visits, you will have opportunities to meet the hospitable Greenlanders and learn more about the Inuit culture.

But global warming is changing Greenland’s arctic environment at an alarming rate. On this 8 days’ voyage to Disko Bay and Uummannaq, we follow the tracks of scientists and decision makers to see with our own eyes the retreating glaciers and gasp at the thought of losing them. During our third day of the cruise, we visit the Danish Research Station on Disko Island.

The expedition concept means that we will utilize Zodiacs for beach landings and enjoy nature hikes to get close to receding glaciers.

We reach our northernmost point at the fabulous town of Uummannaq, before we on our south bound voyage make a Zodiac landing at Eqip Sermia, a giant retreating glacier, and visit Ilulissat, Iceberg Capital of the World. Last visit is the small Inuit settlement of Sarfannguit. Back in Kangerlussuaq we disembark and enjoy a city tour (optional) before flying back to Iceland or Denmark.

Unforgettable experiences await you in Greenland!
