Cruise Overview

Greenland cruise | Discovering Greenland – From Reykjavík to Nuuk

Sail from Reykjavík to southwest Greenland and witness spectacular glaciers and icebergs as we probe deep into little-visited fjords.

See awe-inspiring scenery and wildlife, visit colourful local communities, and delve into Norse history at ancient sites.

With an onboard science focus, learn about the geology that shaped the world’s largest island, as well as its biodiversity and mineral deposits.

This voyage ends in Nuuk from where you will fly to Copenhagen.  An option to fly to Reykjavík instead can be seen here. 

Wild nature and traditional communities 

Sailing from Reykjavík, we cross the Denmark Strait and explore remote areas that few get to visit. There, you’ll discover Norse ruins, visit traditional communities, explore UNESCO-listed historical sites, and learn about the culture of the Arctic peoples. 

Wildlife and ice sculpted landscapes 

Witness the majestic landscapes of Greenland as we explore deep fjords cut into breathtaking mountain landscapes, cruise to cascading tidewater glaciers, delight in the otherworldly beauty of crystalline icebergs, and spot aquatic mammals along the way.
