Day by day

Greenland is a beautiful place to visit.

If you are not taking part in an excursion, then guests can stroll through the city on their own up until the time of embarkation at late afternoon.

We will then transfer back to the port and take Zodiacs to board our ship. The ship is anchored approximately one kilometre into the fjord. There will be a safety presentation after checking-in, followed by dinner in the beautiful dining room. After dinner, we will begin the voyage and sail through the 160-km long fjord to the ocean.

NB. NB. Your luggage will arrive at the ship from the airport directly, so pack anything you may need on the first day in your carry-on. Pack a jacket that is waterproof to keep you warm and dry as we travel to the ship in our open-air Zodiaccs.

Western Greenland has some of the Arctic's most active glaciers. Kangerlussuaq, a small village north of the Arctic Circle that is popular for viewing the Northern Lights and easy access to the Ice Sheet. Disko Bay offers whale-watching opportunities.

Polar Bears are found in the western part of Greenland, but they're very hard to find due to hunting.

In winter the sea ice connects the very north-east part of Greenland to Ellesmere Island. The area is more closely linked to the Canadian Arctic, and its wildlife.

This part of Greenland is a must-see on any Arctic cruise. It has stunning coastal scenery, icebergs of all sizes, and a wealth of wildlife.

We will complete our 160 km/100 miles Kangerlussuaq Fjord passage during the night. We will say goodbye to our ship staff after breakfast and then take the Zodiac boat to land. Fly from Kangerlussuaq back to Iceland or Denmark.
