Stand at the precipice of the gigantic Inland Ice Sheet, and then sail up to the edge of the Arctic sea ice
Greenland’s arctic wilderness offers some of the most spectacular and unspoilt scenery on earth. This is the largest island on the planet, and its frozen coastline has witnessed the birth of some of nature’s most breath taking creations. Here, the struggle for survival has created a healthy respect for the environment among the locals, and we witness the unique interaction of man and nature as we sail through a landscape rich in culture, history and wildlife, into the extreme northern lands of the Midnight Sun.
The Inuit Hunting Culture
Sense the power of nature and learn more about the remarkable people that inhabit the area. In Greenland, hunting and fishing have been a crucial part of life for over 4,000 years. Throughout the generations, the Inuit people have created and refined unique products, including kayaks, harpoons, bird spears and high-quality clothing made of animal hide and fur. The fact that even compacted snow, in the form of an igloo, can be used as a temporary shelter, demonstrates this culture's extraordinary ability to utilise materials found in nature.
Wild and Majestic Nature
Explore rarely visited settlements in the high north, such as Upernavik and Siorapaluk.
See Greenland’s colossal icebergs calve into the sea, explore long fjords, lush meadows and a variety of animal life. Greenland’s distinctive animals, the musk ox, reindeer, narwhal and walrus, are among those that you will have the greatest chance of seeing, especially when we are close to the expedition’s starting point, Kangerlussuaq. With daily landings and excursions, including kayaking, hiking and other activities, you will discover the authentic Greenland and meet the people who call it home.
