Day 1: Reykjavik, Iceland | Embark

Use your leisure time in Reykjavik to discover the unique charm of the world’s northernmost capital or explore the sights of south and west Iceland. The MS Seaventure docks in Old Reykjavik Harbor in the heart of the city, a five-minute stroll from the main squares, shopping, and dining. The ship departs in the evening.

Day 2: Day at Sea | Denmark Strait

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Today sail across the Denmark Strait towards Greenland, following the same maritime route used by Norse settlers more than 900 years ago. En-route you can attend fascinating presentations by your Expedition Team members to prepare for your visit to Greenland. Or of course, you can choose to just relax and watch whales, dolphins, and seabirds from the deck of your cabin.

Day 3: Ammassalik Island

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
The island is characterized by several glaciers, jagged peaks, rivers, lakes, and waterfalls. There are vast green valleys and deep fjords with newly calved icebergs dropping off the ice cap into the sea. Tasiilaq, the largest town in East Greenland, is located on Ammassalik Island. With its population of approximately 2,000 people, the town is the gateway to exploring East Greenland.

Day 4: Skjoldungen Fjord

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
The Skjoldungen Fjord is bordered by towering mountains tipped with snow, ice-scraped valley sides with serpentine rivers of ice plunging into the sea. It is highly likely that the fjord was inhabited by Paleo-Eskimo (Inuit) nomadic people as early as 4,000 years ago. Surrounded by wild and pristine nature, it is quite common to see whales, bearded seals and various kinds of birds in the area.

Day 5: Day at Sea | Prins Christian Sound

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
When conditions are favorable we travel along the 70 mile (112 km) long Prins Christian Sound which connects the Labrador and Irminger Seas. In this narrow, often ice-choked channel, we come so close to icebergs you can almost reach out and touch one. The force of Greenland’s massive, inland ice cap pushes glaciers towards the sea, where large hunks of ice break off and become floating icebergs.

Day 6: Qaqortoq

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
With 3.000 inhabitants, Qaqortoq is the largest settlement in South Greenland. In this charming town you can find lots of strikingly beautiful colonial buildings, dating from the establishment of the town in 1775. The area has a rich history, as it has been inhabited continuously since prehistoric times. You can still see traces of Thule and Norse cultures throughout the region.

Day 7: Nuuk

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
With 16,000 inhabitants Nuuk is both the capital and the biggest city of Greenland. It combines Arctic traditions with European urbanity. Visit the city sights on a walking tour that ends at the National Museum, which exhibits the famous mummies of Qilakitsoq.

Day 8: Sisimiut

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
With approx. 5,600 inhabitants, Sisimiut is the second largest town in Greenland. It is a modern settlement that maintains ancient traditions. The fishing industry still plays an important role. The natural harbor remains ice-free throughout the year which made it an attractive location for European whalers in former times.

Day 9: Ilulissat

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
In the morning we reach Ilulissat village in fabled Disko Bay. Ilulissat is located beside the Ilulissat Icefjord. Delight in the thunderous spectacle when icebergs break off from Sermeq Kujalleq glacier and plunge into the fjord. Sermeq Kujalleq is one of the most productive glaciers in the northern hemisphere.

Day 10: Uummannaq

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Uummannaq is considered one of the most beautiful towns in Greenland. Located on a small island about 300 miles (483 km) north of the Arctic Circle, this tiny, picturesque village lies at the foot of a heart-shaped mountain.

Day 11: Disko Bay | Qeqertarsuaq

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
The small settlement of Qeqertarsuaq is located on the South Coast off Disko Island. In 1773 the first whaling base was founded. Whaling has been of great importance to the town over the past two centuries. Hunting and fishing are still the primary occupations for the island's inhabitants.

Day 12: Kangerlussuaq, Greenland | Disembark

  • 1 Breakfast
In the morning reach the 120-mile (190 km) Kangerlussuaq Fjord and the town of the same name. It’s time to say goodbye to the MS Seaventure.

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.
