17 days

Join us for an exciting expedition in polar waters and experience Arctic highlights as well as the heart of Greenland – the Disko Bay area. 

History, culture and wild coastal landscapes on Saga Island 

Iceland is positioned at the Mid-Atlantic Ridge, which runs right through the country and creates a landscape that is highly geologically active, with many volcanoes and geysers. The unspoilt nature, majestic mountains and stunning waterfalls here are amongst Europe's most powerful and awe-inspiring sights. We spend two days discovering Iceland's cultural and natural secrets. 

Explore the Heart of Greenland 

From Iceland, we continue to rarely-visited southern Greenland, and then onwards to the highlights of Disko Bay. Greenland’s Arctic wilderness offers some of the most spectacular and unspoilt scenery anywhere on earth. It is the largest island on the planet, and its frozen coastline has witnessed the birth of some of nature’s most breathtaking creations. The struggle for survival here has imbued local culture with a healthy respect for the environment. See this unique interaction of man and nature first hand, as we sail through a landscape rich in culture, history and spectacular wildlife, towards the northern lands of the midnight sun. This expedition was created to introduce you to the amazing variety of Greenland; from wonders of nature to small villages and larger towns. Experience  fascinating culture, visit historic sites from the Viking era and enjoy the beautiful Ilulissat Icefjord.
