Day 1: Kangerlussuaq, Greenland | Embark

Begin your journey by sailing out of Kangerlussuaq Fjord (Søndre Strømfjord), a 190-kilometre-long fjord surrounded by mountains and glaciers.

Cross the Arctic Circle on your way and spend time on deck watching for aurora borealis.

Kangerlussuaq, the settlement at the head of the fjord, is a former US Air Force base and Greenland’s primary flight hub.

After your charter flight from Toronto, ON, transfer to the Ocean Endeavour by Zodiac.

Day 2: Kangerlussuatsiaq Fjord

See why Kangerlussuatsiaq lives up to its Danish name, Evighedsfjorden, which means “the fjord of eternity.”

Marvel at this complex coastal waterway that includes calving glaciers, sheer bird cliffs, and streams cascading against a towering mountain backdrop.

Explore this sublime glacial landscape by ship and by Zodiac.

The waters here are relatively warm, due to the West Greenland Current and the subarctic location.

Day 3: Nuuk

Stop in at vibrant Nuuk, the capital of Greenland.

Visit the Greenland National Museum, one of the city’s many outstanding features, where the world-famous Qilakitsoq mummies rest.

The old harbour includes many buildings dating from Danish colonial days, while contemporary Nuuk is known for art, shopping, pubs, and cafés.

Day 4: At Sea | Davis Strait

Deepen your understanding of the environment, cultures, and history of the region as we steam across the Davis Strait towards Labrador.

Enjoy workshops and presentations, watch a documentary, and get out on deck!

Keep your binoculars ready to spot whales and seabirds who follow in your wake.

Day 5-8: Torngat Mountains National Park

Spend three days exploring an area of treeless, mountainous tundra in Torngat Mountains National Park, where some of Canada’s highest peaks east of the Rockies are found.

Enjoy your time hiking, visiting archaeological sites, and Zodiac cruising. Here, Inuit of Nunatsiavut will be your guides in their spiritual homeland.

Be on the lookout for marine mammals, polar and black bears, caribou, falcons, and eagles.

Day 9: Hebron

Step back in time to the historical site of Hebron, which preserves a Moravian Mission station dating from the 1830s.

Call in at the old church, which is where Inuit who resided here in 1959 learned they would be forced to relocate.

Take a moment to read the plaque that commemorates this history and the apology to people affected by the relocations, issued by the government of Newfoundland & Labrador in 2005.

Listen to the stories shared by the guides and meet former Hebron residents and their kin who continue to visit the site and to hunt and fish nearby.

Day 10: Nain

Visit thriving Nain, the most northerly community in Labrador and the administrative capital of Nunatsiavut.

Stop in at the historic Moravian church, enjoy the vibrant brass band, and visit Illusuak, the stunning new cultural centre.

Expect a warm welcome and the opportunity to peruse plenty of arts and handicrafts at this dynamic visit.

This will be your first chance to see trees since the start of your journey!

Day 11-12: Labrador Coast

Explore the southern Labrador coast, where you can find a diverse geography of coastal barrens, high subarctic tundra, high boreal forest, mid-boreal forest, string bog, and islands.

Choose the activity you prefer during expedition landings in this beautiful and quiet region.

Day 13: L'Anse aux Meadows

Wander through the reconstructed Viking habitation at L’Anse aux Meadows, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and the only authenticated Norse settlement in North America.

Learn more about the archaeological remains that date to approximately 1000 CE, and how—amazingly—the site was first found here in 1960 by a close reading of the Viking sagas.

Be sure to visit the superb interpretation centre and meet the actors in period costumes as you make your way through the reconstructed Norse-style sod buildings. This is a must-see for any visitor to Newfoundland and Labrador!

Day 14: Terra Nova National Park

Explore the wonders of Canada’s most easterly national park, where the land meets the sea in a stunning display of natural beauty.

Make your way to the park’s visitor centre and dive into the mysteries of the ocean through touch tanks, marine exhibits, and aquariums. Located along the Newman Sound portion of the Terra Nova Migratory Bird Sanctuary, the visitor centre offers the perfect vantage point to spot fascinating shorebirds in their natural habitat.

Take a stroll along one of the park's scenic trails accompanied by our expert expedition team who will offer interpretations of the surroundings. Marvel at the vibrant colours and intricate details of this extraordinary destination, where nature's power and beauty come together in perfect harmony.

Day 15: St.John's, Newfoundland | Disembark

  • 1 Breakfast
Welcome to St. John’s—the vibrant capital of Newfoundland and Labrador.

Complete your journey by sailing into historic St. John’s harbour, looking out for Signal Hill as you enter the world-famous Narrows.

Photograph the charming houses of the Battery, always a hit with shutterbugs.

Say your farewells in this cultural hotspot and what is sometimes called North America's oldest city.

Beyond expectations! Then again we weren't sure what to expect. Lovely stay at the lodge, met other like-minded travelers (many had their trips planned by Adventure Life) and the owner was a gracious hostess. It felt like you were one happy family, visiting with a favorite aunt.
