Akureyri, located at the back of a magnificent fjord, is the capital of North Iceland. Arrive in Akureyri and embark the Sea Spirit in the afternoon. Settle in to your cabin and familiarize yourself with the ship and her crew.
As your ship cruises the Denmark Strait, spend the day relaxing on deck and taking in the magnificent Arctic beauty around you, or take advantage of the ship's numerous amenities as you prepare for your journey.
The world's largest national park includes the entire northeastern part of Greenland. The ship brings you to explore this vast area in numerous ways: by Zodiac as you cruise along the stunning coasts of Alepfjord; by foot walking across the flowered tundra at Holm Bay; and from above as you climb to the top of Ella Island to view one of the best vistas in the world. Keep a constant eye out for Arctic fox and musk oxen.
During these four days explore the largest, and some say most beautiful, fjord system in the world: East Greenland's Scorsebysund. Remarkable for terrific mountain peaks, granite walls, and one of the most impressive icebergs, Scorsebysund contains the most productive outlet glaciers draining east from the Greenland Ice Sheet.
Plan to visit the most northerly community in East Greenland – Itoqqortoormitt, where you can meet Inuit people and get to know their unique culture first-hand.
Your final days on board the Sea Spirit are spent sailing through the Denmark Strait. You have ample time to reflect on the beauty and mystery of the Arctic. Share memories and photos with your fellow travelers as you journey homeward.
Following breakfast, disembark the ship in Akureyri. From here transfer by bus to the center of Reykjavik to continue your travels.
