Arctic cruising in Greenland
Why not experience a Greenland summer adventure?
Greenland is a huge Arctic island that is dominated by a 3000 metres high icecap. Greenland or “Kalaallit Nunaat” (“Land of the People”) in the Greenlandic language is a place of extremes. Why not do something different and join a 12-day voyage along west coast of Greenland?
Heavily indented with numerous fjords, the Greenland coast is formed by spectacular high mountains, 2000 metre high cliffs and innumerable glaciers. The large glaciers produce the huge cathedral-like icebergs that are abundant in the Greenlandic waters. Greenland and its surrounding waters are home to an impressive array of wildlife. Especially marine mammals such as Fin, Minke and Humpback Whales, Narwhal and Beluga (White Whales) are frequently seen. Blue Whale, Sperm Whale and Pilot Whale are also seen occasionally.
There are about 52 bird species on Greenland and it is also home to more terrestrial mammal species than Spitsbergen: Arctic Wolf, Arctic Fox, Ermine, Collared Lemming, Muskox and the Arctic Hare. The Polar Bear is rarely seen on the west coast, but is regularly seen on the northern and northeastern coasts. And it is along the western Greenland coast that the
Greenland Coastal voyage takes you.
For 12 days, you will start your adventure in Iceland and then sail along the west coast of Greenland. On this journey you will enjoy the best Greenland has to offer - massive icebergs, wildlife & incredible scenery.
