GREENLAND PASSAGE

REACH TO THE FARTHEST CORNERS

The stunning scenes of Disko Bay’s skyscraping icebergs beckon, including a possible exploration of the village of Ilulissat, home of the UNESCO-listed Icefjord. You may witness the mighty crack of Eqi Glacier, also known as the Calving Glacier, one of Greenland’s most active. As your Captain expertly navigates Prince Christian Sound, look up for snow-capped mountains and down into the water for whales and seals. Late departures from Nuuk, Greenland’s capital, and Ilulissat allow time for experiences such as kayaking amid icebergs as the Midnight Sun sits on the horizon like an eternal sunset.

Aug 21    Reykjavik, Iceland    Depart: 6:00PM
Reykjavik, Iceland

In the southwest of Iceland near Faxaflói Bay lies the capital of the country, Reykjavík, simultaneously cosmopolitan and charming. The colorful houses on the horizon create a quaint scene that will make you want to stay forever.Kaleidoscopic views await you at the Harpa Concert Hall, a glittering, glass structure that perfectly exemplifies Iceland’s modern design and will fascinate your inner architect. One of Iceland’s most prominent landmarks is Perlan, originally a group of hot water tanks that was converted to a building that now hosts an exhibition, planetarium, restaurant and observation deck, located atop Öskjuhlíð hill..

Aug 22    Isafjordur, Iceland   Arrive: 9:00AM Depart: 6:30PM
Isafjordur, Iceland

Amid the enchanting Westfjords of Iceland stands Ísafjörður, a fishing town thriving with local energy and culture. Summer months here are brisk, but it’s this cool climate combined with breathtaking and quaint scenery that makes the village feel like an undiscovered treasure. The massive depression among the flat-topped mountains called Naustahvilft – known colloquially as the troll seat – combines Iceland’s natural beauty with the town’s rich folklore. Make a stop at Dokkan Brugghús, the only brewery in the entire Westfjords, and sample the local beers, crafted with naturally filtered spring water from the nearby mountains. For those for whom the sea’s siren call beckons, you must visit the Westfjord History Museum, based on Ísafjörður’s maritime heritage and its rise in the fishing industry.

Aug 23    Grundarfjordur, Iceland   Arrive: 7:00AM Depart: 5:00PM
Grundarfjordur, Iceland

Amid the wondrous features of the Snæfellsnes Peninsula lies the small town of Grundarfjörður, home to fewer than 1,000 inhabitants. Its shining star of a landmark, Kirkjufell, translating to “Church Mountain,” beckons explorers to come and discover the beauty of Iceland. Together with the mountain, a three-pronged waterfall called Kirkjufellsfoss creates an exquisite scene straight out of fantasy. Taking a walk through the center of town, you will come across an orca on land. It’s actually a sculpture created by Unnsteinn Guðmundsson and it was modeled after Thunderstorm the orca, a male whale who often greets visitors during whale watching tours.

Aug 25    Prince Christian Sound - Captain’s Choice   
Prince Christian Sound – Captain’s Choice

Along the southern edge of Greenland sits the awe-inspiring Prince Christian Sound, also known as Prins Christian Sund. Snow-capped mountains on the horizon and borders of glaciers and icebergs make this a stunning waterway to navigate on an expedition. You may possibly make a landing in the tiny village of Aappilattoq, home to fewer than 100 people living in the colorful, yellow, red and blue, Nordic-style houses. Around the sound wildlife is abundant, with frequent sightings of fin, minke and blue whales, as well as bearded and ringed seals.

CAPTAIN’S CHOICE – Captain’s Choice landings add to the sense of exploration and an element of surprise. Your ship’s Captain takes you to the best areas for wildlife viewing and expertly navigates to remote and hidden landings for a more intimate destination immersion. All Antarctica expedition itineraries are subject to change based on weather conditions to ensure a safe expedition.

Home of the Greenland Arboretum, find lush hiking trails resplendent with Greenlandic wildflowers in the summer. These paths lead to viewpoints overlooking glaciers that make for a stunning scene. Nearby sits another small town, Igaliku, where you find another old Norse settlement but a more tranquil scenery away from the crowds. From Narsarsuaq you may access the Greenlandic Ice Sheet by way of the Flower Valley.

Aug 27    Nuuk, Greenland   Arrive: 2:30PM Depart: 10:00PM
Nuuk, Greenland

The capital of Greenland, Nuuk, sits in the fjord system of the same name best known for humpback whales, waterfalls and icebergs.

Hiking, stand-up paddleboarding and kayaking can be found most anywhere for more active explorers. Nuuk’s cultural center Katuaq displays architectural prowess with a building designed to mimic the waves of the Aurora Borealis. You may find an opportunity to fish for cod or redfish and have it cooked for you at the gourmet restaurant Qooqqut Nuan.

Ilulissat (Disko Bay), Greenland

Within the popular Disko Bay sits Ilulissat (Greenlandic for “icebergs”) and its UNESCO-listed Icefjord. The image of pure white, monolithic icebergs surrounding the colorful houses of the town invites you to traverse these wondrous lands. You may find an opportunity to kayak amid the icebergs as the Midnight Sun sits on the horizon, appearing as an eternal sunset. Navigating Disko Bay, Greenland’s largest bay, you’re likely to catch sight of a beluga or bowhead whale, or perhaps even a narwhal. You can see them up close sitting just 30 feet above the waterline from Water’s Edge while keeping warm with heated seating..

Aug 30    Eqi Glacier (Disko Bay), Greenland   Arrive: 8:00AM Depart: 6:00PM
Eqi Glacier (Disko Bay), Greenland

Lying only about 50 miles north of Ilulissat, you’re also surrounded by towering icebergs upon navigating the glacier.
