Behold the Spectacular

Solar Eclipse Expedition

As you navigate the Norwegian Sea from Iceland to Greenland alongside a resident astronomer, witness the spectacle of a total solar eclipse from the perfect location. Out on deck, surrounded by only the horizon, you will share that special moment when everyone looks to the sky for a celestial phenomenon guided by your astronomy expert. After this incredible experience, the natural marvels and rich cultures of Iceland and Greenland beckon for exploration. In Tasiilaq, the spirit of the Inuit people thrives in the colorful houses and rhythmic drum dances that narrate centuries-old stories. Catch a rare glimpse into a serene, close-knit community living in harmony with the untamed Arctic environment in Grímsey. Amid the fjords of Greenland, vast tundra and immense glaciers create the image of ultimate adventure. Jules Verne’s Journey to the Center of the Earth is a science fiction classic, but the landscapes that inspired it are very real and found in Grundarfjörður. Experience the epitome of exploration.

Its design makes it easier to move as the Arctic Circle moves, always keeping the true demarcation. Grímsey Island is a birdwatcher’s paradise, filled with various species, including razorbills, kittiwakes, auks and thick-billed murres. Amid the breathtaking landscapes are the island’s basalt columns. These geometric geological structures covered in lush moss dip into the water, creating a mesmerizing scene.

Ittoqqortoormiit, Greenland

The name "Ittoqqortoormiit" means "Big-House Dwellers" in the Eastern Greenlandic dialect. Very few visitors make the trek here, as the winters are long, and the sea is frozen for nine months of the year. Ittoqqortoormiit is located at Scoresby Sound and with its side fjord is the largest fjord complex in the world, as well as the world’s longest fjord. Within its borders is the tallest mountain in the Arctic region, the two-mile-tall Gunnbjorn Mountain. During early spring, when the sea ice is still thick, yet the sun is high in the sky, many of the local people go out for a weekend on dog sledding trips.
