Itinerary

The day is yours to explore this charming capital city. Perhaps soak in one of the city’s thermal pools, discover the impressive art scene or check out a local museum before the evening’s welcome meeting.
Say hello to your new floating home. Settle in, then farewell Iceland and head through the Denmark Strait towards Greenland

Spend time on the ship relaxing or learning about the history geography and wildlife from onboard polar experts.
Get ready for some dramatic scenery in this stunning region nicknamed the ‘Arctic Patagonia’. Sail around the south of Greenland and soak in natural hot springs near Uunartoq.
Get to know the culture of Greenland on visits to small, picturesque villages dotted along the coast. Visit the capital, Nuuk, which is small but fascinating with its collection of colourful houses and museum filled with mummies. Set out in Zodiacs along Evighedsfjorden, where nature is at its wildest and most beautiful. Choose to go hiking across the wildflower-strewn tundra or simply photograph this breathtaking sight. Venture to the Ilulissat Icefjord to get up close to this fast-moving glacier; perhaps seeing ice sheets crash into the sea below. Take a walk around some Thule ancient sites and soak up the scenery that is unlike anywhere else on Earth.
Say farewell to the ship and the stunning shores of Greenland and travel to Kangerlussuaq to board a flight to Copenhagen. Spend the night at your pleasure; perhaps join some new friends for a final dinner to recount the past two-weeks adventure.
