Iceland's Wild West Coast to East Greenland

National Geographic Endurance
National Geographic Endurance
126 Passengers

Board the brand-new National Geographic Endurance and discover a region of epic ice home to the Arctic’s iconic creatures: polar bears, whales, and vast seabird colonies. We will also be on the lookout for the Northern Lights along Greenland and Iceland at this time of year. Actively explore Iceland’s Westfjord region: hike through valleys awash in wild orchids, mountain aven, wild thyme, and woolly willow; make your way over layers of basalt visibly cracked and carved in the last ice age; feel the spray of thundering waterfalls. Venture into the largest fjord system in the world to cruise among magnificent icebergs and visit the welcoming communities where people live close to their ancestral traditions. Follow in the wake of the 10th-century Viking explorers along the ice cap learning of their bold, history-making expeditions.

Brief Itinerary

Days 1 & 2 Home/Reykjavik, Iceland/Embark
Day 3 Latrabjarg & Flatey Island, Iceland
Day 4 Crossing the Denmark Strait
Days 5 to 10 Exploring Scoresbysund and NE Greenland
Days 11 & 12 Crossing the Denmark Strait/Exploring the Westfjords, Iceland
Day 13 Reykjavik, Iceland/Disembark/Home

Days 1 & 2 Home/Reykjavik, Iceland/Embark

Fly overnight to Reykjavík (flight not included). Explore its Old Town, including Hallgrímskirkja Cathedral and the National Museum with its Viking treasures. Embark National Geographic Endurance.

Day 3 — Latrabjarg & Flatey Island, Iceland

Explore Iceland’s wild western frontier. See the immense Látrabjarg cliffs, with a huge population of razorbills. Visit charming Flatey Island, a trading post for centuries, for walks around the 19th-century hamlet, and opportunities to see and photograph numerous species of birds. Zodiac cruise the coast and see where Erik the Red sailed from in the year 982 A.D., bound for Greenland.

Day 4 — Crossing the Denmark Strait

Cross the Denmark Strait, where the cold east Greenland current carries icebergs south. Enjoy presentations and searching for seabirds including fulmars, kittiwakes, and terns—and possibly seals and humpback whales. Our staff will be on the lookout for northern lights displays at this time of year.

Days 5 to 10 — Exploring Scoresbysund and NE Greenland

Encompassing roughly 80% of the surface of Greenland, the Greenland ice sheet is the second largest body of ice in the world.  Weather and ice will dictate our exact route, but we plan to explore well north of Scoresbysund, in the largest national park in the world—Northeast Greenland National Park. We will also set a course for Scoresbysund, the largest and longest fjord system on earth, with a native village at its entrance. Being the end of summer, the ice will have retreated as far as it ever does, allowing us to explore the fjords, bays, nooks and crannies of this stunning coastline.  We hope to see the iconic arctic wildlife: polar bears, seals and whales.

Days 11 & 12 — Crossing the Denmark Strait/Exploring the Westfjords, Iceland

We return across the Denmark Strait headed just south of the Arctic Circle to the Westfjords, a remote area backed by majestic cliffs. Explore Ísafjördur on a hike with our natural history staff through a wildflower-filled meadow, kayak quiet coves, or hop aboard a Zodiac. Join a photo hike with our National Geographic photographer and soak up the legendary scenery.

Day 13 — Reykjavik, Iceland/Disembark/Home

Disembark in Reykjavík. Soak in the Blue Lagoon’s geothermal waters. Transfer to the airport for flights home (flight not included).
