Day 1: Kangerlussuaq | Embark

A charter flight takes you from Keflavik in Iceland to Kangerlussuaq in Greenland. A transfer bus will take you to the harbor. The MS Seaventure is anchored in Kangerlussuaq. Embarkation will therefore be carried out by Zodiacs before the ship departs in the evening.

For individual arrival in Iceland: Please coordinate your arrival in Iceland with the departure time of the charter plane.

Day 2: Qeqertarsuaq

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
The small settlement of Qeqertarsuaq is located on the south coast of 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 of the island’s inhabitants.

Day 3: Ilulissat

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
The next stop is Ilulissat, which means “iceberg” in Greenlandic. And with good reason, as the town is located at the mouth of the iceberg-filled Ilulissat Ice Fjord. Delight in the thunderous spectacle when icebergs break off from Sermeq Kujalleq glacier and plunge into the fjord. 

Day 4: Sisimiut

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
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 about the domination of the city. 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 and richest cities today in the country.

Day 5: Nuuk

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Nuuk is the capital of Greenland and its oldest town. Founded in 1728 by Danish-Norwegian missionary Hans Egede, the city combines Arctic traditions and European urbanity. With around 16,000 inhabitants, Nuuk is considered a modern, bustling metropolis compared to the rest of Greenland.

Day 6: Ikka Fjord

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Today, visit the Ikka Fjord. When the water is calm, you can discover unique columnar mineral formations on the seabed. The columns were formed over 10,000 years ago by calcium carbonate compounds and provide a unique habitat.

Day 7: Prince Christian Sound

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
When conditions are favorable, travel along the 70-mile (112 km) long Prince Christian Sound that connects the Labrador and Irminger Seas. In this narrow, often ice-choked channel, 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 chunks of ice break off and become floating icebergs.

Day 8: 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 the 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 or from your cabin.

Day 9: 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 10: Day at Sea | Denmark Strait

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Today, sail across the Denmark Strait towards Iceland. This route was used by Norse settlers traveling to Greenland around 900 years ago.

Day 11: Reykjavik

  • Ship

After breakfast, reach Reykjavik. Explore inland areas like the Golden Circle and its famous Gullfoss waterfall or other post-cruise programs.

Day 12: Arnarstapi | Grundarfjordur

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Depending on the weather, Arnarstapi or Grundarfjordur are the starting points of your adventures on the Snaefellsnes Peninsula. Often called "Iceland in Miniature" because of its diverse landscapes, the area is home to bird-rich Breidafjordur Bay and Snaefellsjokull glacier. This glacier sits atop a 700,000-year-old dormant volcano that was featured in the Jules Verne novel Journey to the Center of the Earth.

Day 13: Isafjordur

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Today‘s destination is Isafjordur, an idyllic town in the Westfjords region. This secluded peninsula is connected to the Icelandic mainland by a narrow strip of land and includes many roadless areas where cars have never been. The landscape includes jaw-dropping views of dramatic fjords carved by ancient glaciers, sheer table mountains that plunge into the sea, and pristine North Atlantic vegetation.

Day 14: Flatey | Husavik

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
In the morning, visit Flatey Island. It’s a natural haven for birdlife and home to arctic terns and puffin, which can be observed at close quarters. Around lunchtime, steam further into the Skjalfandi Bay and visit Husavik.

Day 15: Husavik

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Husavik is often called the "whale-watching capital" of Iceland. The town’s offshore waters are home to 15 different whale species, as well as dolphins and 30 variety of birds. Watching these graceful ocean giants in their Arctic habitat is an unforgettable experience.

Day 16: Seydisfjordur

  • Ship
