Scoresbysund

Greenland and its surrounding waters are home to an impressive array of wildlife: eight species of whale, two million seals, Walruses, Polar Bears, Reindeer, Musk Oxen, Arctic Hares, Arctic Wolves and a spectacular variety of birds. The largest island in the world, 90% of its surface area is covered by ice and it is inhabited by less then 100.000 people, though with a fascinating history and culture. This voyage focuses on East and Northeast Greenland, among the most isolated, sparsely populated and scenically superb parts of the island. Fortunately, from the wildlife enthusiast's point of view, they are also the most rewarding regions with regular sightings of Musk Oxen, Arctic Hares, Narwhals and a variety of birds, including Gyrfalcon, Snowy Owl, Barnacle and Pink-footed Geese - 9 nights/10 day

Spitsbergen & Northeast Greenland This Arctic voyage starts in North Spitsbergen to East Greenland. During this voyage you will visit Kejser Franz Joseph Fjord and Scoresbysund, the largest and arguably most spectacular fjord in the world. Its huge glaciers, beautifully sculptured icebergs, and the warm autumn colours of the tundra make for wonderful photographs.
You may also get to visit the friendly Greenlandic hunting community of Itoqqortoormiit. Other shore landings will focus on wildlife and with luck, find a herd of Musk Oxen grazing on the tundra. From here continue south to Ammassalik, visiting present day Greenlandic communities. In this part of Greenland narwhals are often spotted and you may encounter polar bears as they drift southwards on the ice floes - 12 nights/13 day & 13 nights/14 day voyages available

Viking trail to the Americas

Set sail on this remarkable journey that follows in the footsteps of the early explorers to visit the southern part of Greenland and learn about the lives of the early explorers and the Inuit of yesterday and today – from Nanortalik to Brattahlid, Hvalsey and Qaqortoq. Then sail across “iceberg alley” for Baffin Island of the Canadian Arctic and keep a keen watch for seabirds, seals, whales and perhaps Polar Bear. Explore the coast of Frobisher Bay before reaching Iqaluit, the capital of the newly created Nunavut territory of Canada. Journeying southbound, explore the amazing coast of isolated Labrador with boreal forests, fjords and tundra and learn about the lives of the early inhabitants and settlers. You then come to the island province of Newfoundland with their fishing “outport” communities and rugged natural coastline. This journey is a fascinating tale of tenacious people in a challenging environment.
