Adventure Options

Find yourself among some of the most magnificent sceneries in the world. Icebergs the size of city blocks and soaring mountains provide a humbling perspective on our diminutive size within the natural world. The juxtaposition of glittering icebergs and verdant hillsides in one scene may strike you as unreal, but that's Greenland.

Day 1 – Embarkation in Reykjavík, Iceland

Welcome to Reykjavík, the capital of Iceland and starting point of our expedition. After arriving via scheduled commercial flight service, you are free to explore this fascinating city. Reykjavík is home to a wealth of cultural institutions including museums, galleries, and the Hallgrímskirkja church. Leisure possibilities inside the city include parks, gardens, and thermal baths. You can also take advantage of Reykjavík’s wide range of shopping possibilities and excellent dining options.

In the afternoon we welcome you aboard the luxury expedition ship M/V Sea Spirit. Explore the ship and get comfortable in your home away from home for the extraordinary adventure to come. Savor the anticipation of your Arctic dreams coming true as we slip our moorings and sail out of the harbor into the bay of Faxaflói, where it is possible to encounter our first whales.

Days 2 & 3 – Across Denmark Strait

From Iceland we proceed forthwith across Denmark Strait toward Cape Farewell, the southern tip of Greenland. Presentations and workshops by our expert staff, as well as our range of onboard recreation facilities, ensure that these days at sea are not idly spent. Seabird viewing and whale sightings can be enjoyed from panoramic open decks as well as exterior stateroom windows and balconies.

Days 4 to 11 – Exploration of South and West Greenland

As M/V Sea Spirit rounds Cape Farewell, the southernmost point in Greenland, we plan to start our exploration of South and West Greenland.

Though settlements abound in this part of Greenland, unpredictable weather and dearth of docking facilities nevertheless make this a real expedition. As such, our route and exploration opportunities along this coast are heavily dependent on the weather and ice conditions we encounter. Our experienced captain and expedition leader decide the itinerary and continually adjust plans as conditions and opportunities warrant. You can be sure that the best possible advantage will be taken of the circumstances presented to us by nature in this wild and remote region. Possible sites of exploration include:

Nanortalik – The Greenland’s most southerly town Nanortalik lies at the mouth of beautiful Tasermiut Fjord surrounded by steep mountains that flank an intricate fjord system. The name of the town translated as “the place with polar bears” says that these arctic animals could be often seen hunting on the sea ice outside of the settlement. The local open-air museum demonstrates the fascinating history from Viking and Inuit times to the present days.

Uunartoq – The Uunartoq area is famous for its natural hot springs, surrounded by beautiful iceberg panoramas.

Qaqortoq – The town of Qaqortoq is the most populous town in southern Greenland. Colorful historical buildings, such as the former blacksmith shop that now houses the Qaqortoq Museum, reflect the town’s Danish colonial past. Greenland’s oldest fountain and numerous stone sculptures can be found around town.

Hvalsey – The island of Hvalsey is the site of Greenland’s largest and best-preserved Norse ruins. According to the Icelandic Book of Settlements, the farmstead was established in the late 10th century by Erik the Red’s uncle, Thorkell Farserkur. Most impressive among the remains are the walls of an exceptionally well-built stone church.

Paamiut – The picturesque town of Paamuit has one of Greenland’s finest churches, built in 1909 from wood in the Norwegian style. The area is also known for an abundance of white-tailed eagles.

Nuuk – Nuuk is the capital and largest city of Greenland. It has a population of over 16,000, making it one of the smallest capital cities in the world by population. It is also the world’s northernmost capital, located only a few kilometers further north than Reykjavík. The famous Qilakitsoq mummies can be seen at the Greenlandic National Museum.

Sisimiut – The second-largest town in Greenland boasts a youthful, urban vibe. The Sisimiut Museum offers insight into the local culture and a history of human habitation dating back 4,500 years.

Qeqertarsuaq – Located on volcanic Disko Island, the small town of Qeqertarsuaq enjoys views of basaltic mountains and the huge icebergs of Disko Bay. Founded in 1773 as a whaling station, Qeqertarsuaq is one of the oldest towns in Greenland. Cultural attractions include a distinctive octagonal church called the “Lord’s Ink Pot”. Hiking option in the beautiful surrounding is available in the area.

Uummannaq – Founded in 1763 on the island of the same name, the town of Uummannaq is a hunting and fishing base with a canning factory and a marble quarry. Rising above town is the distinctive 3,800 ft. (1,170 m) Uummannaq Mountain. Danish and Greenlandic children believe that Santa Claus lives on the island.

Eqip Sermia – This active tidewater glacier is situated in a wild and scenic fjord. In the period after the Second World War, this area functioned as a starting point for expeditions onto the ice cap conducted by the French explorer Paul Emile Victor, whose hut still stands today.

Ilulissat – Formerly called Jakobshavn, the town of Ilulissat is best known for unbelievable quantities of icebergs issuing from the nearby Ilulissat Icefjord, into which one of the world’s fastest moving and most active glaciers calves 11 cubic miles (46 cubic km) of ice annually. The breathtaking ice formations are best appreciated from a boat (a boat trip along the fjord is included in the price of the voyage). Attractions in town include the Inuit Art Museum, which contains a large collection of paintings by Greenlandic, Faroese, and Danish artists.

Itilleq – Located just north of the Arctic Circle, Itilleq (also known as Itivdleq) is a settlement on a small island with about 100 inhabitants. The main trade here is fishing and hunting. The island has no freshwater, so Itilleq has a facility that makes freshwater from seawater.

Day 16 – Disembarkation in Kangerlussuaq, Greenland

After breakfast we say farewell in Kangerlussuaq, the site of Greenland's largest commercial airport. After disembarkation we transfer to the airport for your homeward-bound air flight.
