After breakfast, transfer to airport for charter flight to Kangerlussuaq. Board ship by Zodiac and set sail along Sondre Stromfjord

Itilleq
3Day

Itilleq

Today, visit a typical Greenlandic village of Itilleq. Delightfully situated in a hollow (which is the meaning of “Itilleq” in Greenlandic), it’s surrounded by sea, mountains and fjords, on an island with no freshwater source. The small fishing and hunting community will welcome us and show us their way of life.

Ilulissat
4Day

Ilulissat

Just south of this town is the beautiful Ilulissat Icefjord, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and home of one of the most actively calving glaciers in the world, Sermeq Kujalleq. We’ll cruise in a Zodiac at the mouth of the fjord, and if you’re lucky, you may witness the spectacle of calving ice.

Eqip Sermia
5Day

Eqip Sermia

Sailing toward the glacier Eqip Sermia rewards with breathtaking views one of the most photographed places in Greenland. We hope to Zodiac cruise from a safe distance, tracing the spectacular jagged, gleaming-blue glacier front. We may also stop nearby for a shore landing.

Uummannaq & Qilaqitsoq
6Day

Uummannaq & Qilaqitsoq

Have your camera ready and be out on deck as the ship approaches Uummannaq (which means “heart- like”), named for the heart-shaped mountain that towers over the town. It’s a breathtaking vista you won’t want to miss.

Qeqertarsuaq - Disko Island
7Day

Qeqertarsuaq - Disko Island

The town of Qeqertarsuaq (also the name of the island it’s on) is one of Greenland’s oldest, founded in 1773 as a whaling station. Today, although whaling still occurs, sealing and fishing are more predominant. Particularly rich with marine life, the waters around the island play host to humpback, fin, and minke whales.

Sisimuit
8Day

Sisimuit

Today, you’ll have time to explore the 18th-century colonial buildings of Sisimiut and also watch a demonstration of traditional kayaking. Be sure to wander the historic area, where you can pass under the large arch formed by a pair of bowhead whale bones. There will also be an opportunity to hike amongst the soaring mountains that surround the town.
