Day 1 Kangerlussuaq, Greenland | Embark

After your flight from Toronto, embark the Ocean Endeavour and make your way down spectacular Sondre Stromfjord for a chance to experience its beauty. Sondre Stromfjord is one of the longest fjords in the world and boasts 168 kilometers of superb scenery! Kangerlussuaq, the town at its eastern head, means ‘the big fjord’.

Day 2 Qeqqata Kommunia

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
There are a number of charming fishing villages along the west coast of Greenland—depending on timing and sea conditions, call in at one of these communities to experience small town Greenlandic life, or navigate into the stunning fjords that line the coast. This is a day in the true spirit of expedition travel and the ship's crew takes advantage of any and all opportunities that present themselves. 

Day 3 Nuuk

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Welcome to Nuuk, the capital of Greenland and one of the world’s northernmost capital cities! Nuuk means ‘the headland’ and is situated at the mouth of a gigantic fjord system. Established as the  first Greenlandic town in 1728, Nuuk remains the bustling center of the country today. Spot humpback whales in the fjord, reindeer roaming the land, and birds soaring above. The town is home to the University of Greenland, a cathedral dating back to 1849, and Greenland’s National Museum. Have a guided orientation of this bustling metropolis and an opportunity to visit the National Museum where the Qilakitsoq mummies are housed before free time to explore on your own.

Day 4 At Sea | Davis Strait

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Enjoy a presentation series prepared by the crew as the ship sails across the Davis Strait towards landfall in Canada. While out on deck keep your eyes peeled for minke, humpback and other marine mammals, as well as the seabirds that are sure to mark your passage.

Day 5 Kangiqsualujjuaq (George River)

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
In the shelter of a commanding granite rock outcrop find the easternmost community of Kangiqsualujjuaq, or George River. Twenty-five kilometers upstream from Ungava Bay, the ebb and flow of the tides define the summer lives of the people and fauna of this area. Arctic flora thrives in the protected valley. The traditional calving grounds of the critically declining George River caribou herd are nearby. After your welcome back to Canada, have the freedom to explore the community, meet with locals, and strike out of town for a hike on the tundra.

Day 6-8 Torngat Mountains National Park

  • Ship
  • 3 Breakfasts, 3 Lunches, 3 Dinners
The Torngat Mountains have been home to Inuit and their predecessors for millennia, with archaeological evidence reaching back almost 7,000 years. The fjords here reach deep into the heart of the mountains, bounded by cliffs peaking at 1,700 meters, the highest point of land in Labrador. The rugged, spectacular beauty and inimitable spirit of the Torngat Mountains has led to their acting as the spiritual homeland of Nunatsiavut, both historically and into the present day.

The Torngat Mountains comprise some of the oldest rocks on the planet and provide some of the best exposure of geological history. Polar bears, caribou, falcons, and eagles are among the species hardy enough to make their homes here. Spend your time here getting out on the land for hikes, searching for wildlife, visiting archaeological sites, and Zodiac cruising through some of Canada’s most dramatic landscapes. 

Day 9 Hebron

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
In a highly controversial move, the former Moravian Mission station dating from the 1830s was abandoned in 1959 with the departure of the Moravians, forcing the relocation of the Inuit who resided there. In 2005, Newfoundland and Labrador Premier Danny Williams apologized to people affected by the relocations. In August of 2009, the provincial government unveiled a monument at the site of Hebron with an inscribed apology for the site closure. Today, some of the buildings at Hebron are being repurposed as a cultural interpretation center and it is these buildings that you visit. They form a lonely monument to the cultural past of the area, with hopes for the future of Nunatsiavut. 

Day 10 Nain

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Today explore the Inuit community of Nain. The administrative capital of Nunatsiavut, Nain is the most northerly community in Labrador. Visit its Moravian Church, the Nunatsiavut Building with its Labradorite stone, and the newly finished Torngâsok Cultural Centre. Local leaders share the fascinating history of the township, and you have a chance to visit with the community. 

Day 11-12 Labrador Coast

  • Ship
  • 2 Breakfasts, 2 Lunches, 2 Dinners
The lower Labrador coast boasts five of Labrador’s ten provincial eco-regions, including coastal barrens, high subarctic tundra, high boreal forest, mid boreal forest, and string bog. The Mealy Mountain range in this area reaches heights of more than 1,000 meters. A significant portion of the mountain range and surrounding area has been recently designated a potential National Park Reserve, a move which follows lobbying for the preservation of the area since the early 1970s. Land your Zodiacs at the Wonderstands, a stunning 56-kilometer stretch of beach referenced in Viking sagas.

Day 13 L'Anse aux Meadows

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
A UNESCO World Heritage Site, L'Anse aux Meadows is the only authenticated Norse settlement in North America. The archaeological remains found here in 1960 date to approximately 1000 AD. Amazingly, the location of the ruins was first established by a close reading of the Viking sagas.

Today, a superb interpretive center and reconstructions of the several Norse-style sod buildings make L’Anse aux Meadows a must-see for any visitor to Newfoundland. 

Day 14 Terra Nova National Park

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Call in at Newfoundland and Labrador's first national park, Terra Nova, located in beautiful Bonavista Bay. Your approach course winds through the small islands that dot the route and the occasional icebergs that drift in from the Atlantic. Once ashore, have a variety of hiking opportunities in the park, where you can hope to observe some of the black bears, osprey and moose that call the park home.

Day 15 St.John's, Newfoundland | Disembark

  • 1 Breakfast
Sailing into St. John’s has to be experienced to be believed; Signal Hill keeps watch over the world-famous Narrows where icebergs are frequently seen. The bustling city of St. John's with its colorful houses and steep streets makes a spectacular backdrop to the legendary route where your journey comes to a close.

This was our first trip to South America and we were a little nervous. But Adventure Life made things so easy! All our questions were answered before we left, and our guide, Vidal, was amazing! He gave us enough space to explore without rushing us along. He also knew where the best picture taking opportunities were, which was great.
