Day 1: Reykjavik, Iceland | Embark

Located in southwest Iceland, near Faxafloi Bay, Reykjavik is the country's capital, a city that is both cosmopolitan and charming. The colorful houses on the horizon create a quaint scene that will make you want to stay forever. At the Harpa Concert Hall, you can enjoy kaleidoscopic views of Iceland's modern design, and the glittering, glass structure is sure to fascinate your inner architect. Perlan, one of Iceland's most prominent landmarks, is situated atop Oskjuhlíd hill. Originally a group of hot water tanks, it has been converted into a building that now houses an exhibition, planetarium, restaurant, and observation deck.

Day 2: Grundarfjordur, Iceland

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Amid the wondrous features of the Snæfellsnes Peninsula lies the small town of Grundarfjörður, home to fewer than 1,000 inhabitants. Its shining star of a landmark, Kirkjufell, translating to "Church Mountain," beckons explorers to discover Iceland's beauty. Together with the mountain, a three-pronged waterfall called Kirkjufellsfoss creates an exquisite scene out of fantasy. Walking through the town center, you will come across an orca on land. It’s a sculpture created by Unnsteinn Guðmundsson and it was modeled after Thunderstorm the orca, a male whale who often greets visitors during whale-watching tours.

Day 3: At Sea

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Spend the day on the high seas pampering yourself at the spa or enjoying some time on deck. Mingle with fellow explorers and swap stories of your exploits, making plans for new ones together once you get to shore.
 

Day 4: Prince Christian Sound - Captain’s Choice

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Along the southern edge of Greenland sits the awe-inspiring Prince Christian Sound, also known as Prins Christian Sund. Snow-capped mountains on the horizon and borders of glaciers and icebergs make this a stunning waterway to navigate on an expedition. You may possibly make a landing in the tiny village of Aappilattoq, home to fewer than 100 people living in colorful, yellow, red, and blue Nordic-style houses. Around the sound wildlife is abundant, with frequent sightings of fin, minke, blue whales, and bearded and ringed seals.

CAPTAIN’S CHOICE - Your Captain will expertly navigate ice floes, icebergs, and changing sea and weather conditions to ensure you experience the most from your expedition. Each day is a new adventure filled with spontaneous exploration as your Captain works with our expedition team to determine possible shore landings and Zodiac safaris. All itinerary routes serve as examples and are subject to change based on current conditions, prioritizing the safety and optimal expedition experience for all guests.
 

Day 5: Qaqortoq, Greenland

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
The largest city in southern Greenland is perhaps best known for its open-air “Stone and Man” art exhibition featuring sculptures from some of the country’s most renowned artists built around Qaqortoq’s colonial center. You also find Mindebrønde, Greenland’s oldest fountain in this historic center. Near the town sit the Viking ruins of Hvalsey Church, the last known written records of the Greenlandic Norse who attended a wedding in 1408 BCE. Hot springs are abundant in Greenland, but the outdoor spa on the uninhabited island of Uunartoq has surrounding views of mountain peaks in the distance, making it a favorite among locals and explorers alike. Set within a stunning nature scene, there are plenty of opportunities for kayaking, hiking, fishing, and other outdoor activities.
 

Day 6: Narsarsuaq, Greenland

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
As a gateway to South Greenland’s Norse ruins of Qassiarsuk and having played an important role among the Allies of World War II, Narsarsuaq holds a rich history. Home of the Greenland Arboretum, find lush hiking trails resplendent with Greenlandic wildflowers in the summer. These paths lead to viewpoints overlooking glaciers that make for a stunning scene. Nearby sits another small town, Igaliku, where you find another old Norse settlement with more tranquil scenery away from the crowds. From Narsarsuaq you may access the Greenlandic Ice Sheet through the Flower Valley.


 

Day 7: Paamiut, Greenland

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Inhabited since 1500 BCE and lying off the beaten path amid a scene of wild fjords, the village of Paamiut embodies the essence of exploration. Walking among the colorful houses, you’ll likely find the locals drying seal meat and pelts on racks under their homes. Seek out a local guide from the Paamiut museum who can show you the town’s history, such as the peat houses the Inuit built to keep warm in the winters. As you hike the paths of ancient trails, white-tailed eagles may soar above, and it’s said if you spot one, it will bring luck. From the shores, keep an eye on the horizon, looking for humpback, minke, and fin whales that are abundant in the region in the summer.

Day 8: Nuuk, Greenland

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
The capital of Greenland, Nuuk, sits in the fjord system of the same name and is best known for humpback whales, waterfalls, and icebergs. This unique city contains mountains and an expansive backcountry on one side and a thriving metropolitan on the other, filled with culinary experiences, museums, and fashion boutiques. Hiking, stand-up paddleboarding, and kayaking can be found almost anywhere for more active explorers. Nuuk’s cultural center, Katuaq displays architectural prowess with a building designed to mimic the waves of the Aurora Borealis. You may find an opportunity to fish for cod or redfish and have it cooked for you at the gourmet restaurant Qooqqut Nuan.
 

Day 9: Akulleq Island, Greenland

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Sitting in the Davis Strait within the bend of Uummannaq Bay is the island of Akulleq. This small desert island contains a stunning moonscape scenery made of orange and ochre yellow from the minerals illuminated under the light of the polar summer sun. Climbing to its summit, you find a panoramic vista of monolithic icebergs on the bay’s horizon.

Day 10: Sisimiut, Greenland

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
At the end of the Arctic Circle Trail sits Sisimiut, where modern and traditional cultures combine to create a rich tapestry of Greenland’s history. It also lies outside the UNESCO-listed Aasivissuit – Nipisat cultural area, home to Inuit hunting grounds. Take to the water with opportunities for kayaking, boat tours to abandoned settlements like Assaqutaq, or whale-watching excursions. Immerse yourself in local culture with the possibility of fishing and big game hunting opportunities to understand the city’s sustainable practices. Stop by the small store Qiviut to pick up an authentic muskoxen wool pelt, obtained from local hunters.
 

Day 11: Kangerlussuaq, Greenland | Disembark

  • 1 Breakfast
Surrounded by a UNESCO-listed hinterland and the second-largest ice shelf in the world, Kangerlussuaq is filled with breathtaking landscapes of glaciers, crevasses, and blue meltwater lakes. Take a possible trek to the remote Russell Glacier, where herds of musk oxen roam free, the Arctic Circle Trail hike begins and you may witness the ice calving with a mighty crack. Back in town at the Kangerlussuaq Museum, you find a look at the town’s modern history and that of the Inuit, the indigenous peoples of the area. For scientific minds, discover the Kellyville Kangerlussuaq research facility.
