Day 1 : Depart from Reykjavik / Embark in Kulusuk Days 2-6 : Fjords on the East Greenland Coast Day 7 : Rømer Fjord and Turner Sound Day 8 : Scoresby Sund Day 9 : Ittoqqortoormiit Day 10 : Jameson Land Day 11 : Disembark in Nerlerit Inaat / Return to Reykjavik
Sailing northward along the East Greenland coast, enter several fjords, competing in great beauty, Ikerssuaq, Kangerlussuaq, Miki’s, Nansen and d’Auney’s, most of these with glacier fronts at the head. Any of these fjords offer a chance to see a polar bear.
Rømer Fjord and Turner Sound give good opportunities to sail far inland, as they have no glacier front at the head and they are not clogged with glacier ice, providing hiking opportunities. From a ridge on the Manby Peninsula have a stunning view across the landscape.
Ittoqqortoormiit (about 400 inhabitants), at the northern entrance of the Scoresby Sund, is the only Greenlandic settlement of the area. Their nearest neighbors in West Greenland live about 800 km away.

Our guide and driver were very good with their knowledge and were very helpful with our questions. It was a very pleasant visit that would have been impossible to do on our own. Hotels and restaurants were fantastic. The special places we got to go to, like the kitchens, were great. Enjoyed the entire trip!
