Board the MS Seaventure in Kangerlussuaq, Greenland, and set off on your journey to Iceland. Along the way, marvel at the stunning sights: from majestic glaciers and icebergs floating in deep-blue water to the islands' unique indigenous wildlife, the natural wonders of the Arctic are the stars of this voyage. Whales and seals often accompany the ship, while musk oxen graze ashore. Hardly anywhere is geology as exciting as it is in Iceland. Ice and fire have combined throughout the years to form unearthly landscapes of lava, glaciers, boiling mud pots, geothermal springs, and thundering waterfalls. On this 12-day voyage, discover remote villages and explore the wild coastlines of the Arctic.

Day 1: Kangerlussuaq, Greenland | Embark

Welcome to Greenland! The MS Seaventure anchors off Kanglerlussuaq and embarkation is conducted via your Zodiac boats. The ship departs in the evening.

Day 2: Sisimiut, Greenland

  • 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 3: Ilulissat, Greenland

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Your 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: Uummannaq, Greenland

  • 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 heartshaped mountain.

Day 5: Qeqertarsuaq, Greenland

  • 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 there. Whaling has been of great importance to the town over the past two centuries.

Day 6: Nuuk, Greenland

  • 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. Visit the city sights on a walking tour that ends at the National Museum, which exhibits the famous mummies of Qilakitsoq.

Day 7: Narsarsuaq, Greenland

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
In the evening we reach the small settlement of Qassiarsuk to anchor for the night. Qassiarsuk was founded by notorious Viking Erik the Red who named this area “green land” because of the inviting green valleys around Qassiarsuk. During our stop here you can learn about the lives of the island’s early Norse settlers and visit a reconstructed Viking longhouse and small turf church.

Day 8: 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) Prins Christian Sound. In this narrow, often ice-choked channel, we come so close to icebergs you can almost reach out and touch them.

Day 9: Ammassalik Island, Greenland

  • 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: Skjoldungen Fjord, Greenland

  • 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 Indigenous (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 11: Day at Sea | Denmark Strait

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

Day 12: Reykjavík, Iceland | Disembark

  • 1 Breakfast
After breakfast, you bid farewell to the MS Seaventure as you sail back into Reykjavik. You can also simply hang out in Reykjavik, a perfect city for those who want to refresh their spirit in a place that combines invigorating outdoor activities, great food, and world-class entertainment.
