Day by day

Day by day

Day 1

Reykjavik

Today we board our expedition ship, depart Reykjavik and start our Greenland adventure.

Day 2

Denmark Strait

On our first day at sea, get to know the ship and meet the Expedition team. Enjoy an opportunity to see whales and many different bird species, including soaring fulmars, kittiwakes, gannets guillemots and razorbills.

Day 3

Tasiilaq

Discover Tasiilaq, East Greenland's gateway to adventure located on the southeastern coast of Ammassalik Island. With stunning views across the Tasiilaq Fjord's natural harbour, the mountains and the sea beckon travellers to explore. Attend a talk at a local museum and learn about the area's history and culture.

 

Day 4

Nansen Fjord

Taking advantage of local ice and weather conditions, board a zodiac and explore the majestic Nansen Fjord, a broad inlet with rocky headlands distantly framed by the highest point in Greenland. With its primary tidewater glacier that spans a 14km width, copious quantities of icebergs have been known to disgorge into the fjord. Explore one of those rare places on Earth blessed with both awe-inspiring landscape and a compelling natural history.

Day 5

Greenland Sea

Enjoy a day of Arctic lectures, relaxing on board the ship, and an opportunity to see whales as we cruise further north.

Days 6-7

Kaiser Frans Joseph Fjord

Take two days to explore the stunning Kaiser Franz Joseph Fjord, located in the heart of the Northeast Greenland National Park — the largest national park in the world (and on the world's largest island). See towering icebergs up close as the ship navigates the fjords. Weather and ice conditions permitting, enjoy great opportunities for zodiac cruising and landings in the area.

Days 8-11

Scoresbysund

Spend four full days exploring the Scorsbysund area of the Northeast Greenland National Park. Weather and ice conditions permitting, this is a great opportunity to explore fjords that are deep in the heart of Greenland.

Visit the tiny settlement of Ittoqqortoormiit for a look at how these most northerly people live.

Days 12-13

Denmark Strait
