Polar Regions Arctic Cruise

Expedition to the Edge of the Ice Sheet

Follow the Vikings’ route, in the steps of Erik the Red. From Reykjavik, touch the east coast of Greenland in Tasiilaq, a city on the edge of an inlet with a breathtaking view of glittering blue icebergs. Watch for abundant and varied fauna: seals, whales, orcas and many species of seabirds. Sail down the narrow Prins Christian Sund passage, connecting the southeast of Greenland to the southwest.

Jagged mountains, rocky cliffs, waterfalls and floating ice form a wonderful wild landscape that hosts colonies of bearded seals. Sail amid the blue icebergs of the Narsaq region, and among the largest icebergs in the Northern Hemisphere in Disko Bay before disembarking in Kangerlussuaq.
