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

Today sail across the Denmark Strait towards Greenland, following the same maritime route used by Norse settlers hundreds of 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

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: Day at sea | Prince Christian Sound

When conditions are favorable, travel along the 70-mile (112 km) long Prince Christian Sound, which connects the Labrador and Irminger Seas. In this narrow channel, often choked with ice, it is possible to come so close to icebergs that you can almost touch them. The force of Greenland's massive inland ice cap pushes glaciers towards the sea, causing large chunks of ice to break off and become floating icebergs.

Day 5: Qaqortoq

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 6: Qeqertarsuasiat

Qeqertarsuasiat is a small settlement with approx. 200 residents, mainly living from hunting and fishing. Visit the small mine and learn more about the extraction of precious stones. 

Day 7: Nuuk

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

Sisimiut has a turbulent history, especially during the 18th century when the first Danish colony was destroyed by Dutch whalers who wanted to establish their own settlement. The Danes fought back and eventually recaptured Sisimiut after several fierce battles in the 1730s. Heavy fighting between Dutch whalers and various European nations took place over the years. Because of its flourishing shrimp industry, Sisimiut is one of Greenland’s most prosperous cities today.

Day 9: Ilulissat

In the morning, arrive at the village of Ilulissat in the fabled Disko Bay. Ilulissat is situated beside the Ilulissat Icefjord, where you can witness the thunderous spectacle of icebergs breaking off from the glacier and plunging into the fjord. Sermeq Kujalleq is one of the most productive glaciers in the northern hemisphere.

Day 10: Disko Bay | Qeqertarsuaq

The small settlement of Qeqertarsuaq is located on the South Coast of Disko Island. In 1773, the first whaling base was founded there. Whaling has been of great importance to the town over the past two centuries. Hunting and fishing are still the primary occupations of the island’s inhabitants.

Day 11: 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. Charter flight back to Keflavik.

The trip might have been the absolute best of our lifetime (thus far). We particularly want to commend our guide Peter in the Guilin area-he was so incredibly attentive, energetic, enthusiastic-and absolutely dedicated to ensuring that our meals were 100% vegetarian.
