Journey to Greenland
Get up close & personal
An adventure like no other
The world’s largest island, Greenland offers striking wilderness and wildlife as well as fascinating Viking history and contemporary Inuit culture. Locally known as Kalaallit Nunaat (meaning “Land of the People"), Greenland is often considered the birthplace of kayaking and many of these cruises will provide the opportunity to kayak as a part of your voyage. A trip to Greenland could include the chance to see polar bears, Arctic fox, reindeer, Arctic hare, humpback whales, blue whales, fin whales, narwhals, ringed seals, and one of the Arctic’s largest populations of musk ox. Highlights include Scoresby Sound, the largest fjord system in the world, and Ilulissat Icefjord, a UNESCO world heritage site full of icebergs. Greenland is one of the more remote islands in the world with limited commercial flights, so most itineraries begin and end in Reykjavik, Iceland, and will include crossing the Denmark Strait to reach Greenland. Others will feature a special charter flight to Narsarsuaq or Kangerlussuaq, Greenland from Reykjavik. It is also common to visit Greenland while on a combination itinerary which also includes Iceland and/or Svalbard.
