North America Canada Cruise

Fabled Lands of the North: Greenland to Newfoundland

On this Arctic cruise in Canada aboard 148-guest National Geographic Explorer, discover three distinctly fascinating regions of the north. Explore two UNESCO World Heritage sites alongside a team of experts: glide among soaring icebergs at the mouth of the Ilulissat Icefjord; and ponder the remains of the 11th-century Viking village at L’Anse aux Meadows. Meet Inuit artisans on Baffin Island and learn about their carving and weaving traditions. Search for polar bears, caribou, arctic foxes, humpback and minke whales, walruses, and more in their natural habitat. And explore the untamed coasts of Newfoundland and Labrador, discovering spectacular fjords and cliffs on foot and by kayak and Zodiac.

Begin your cruise from Greenland to Canada by sailing the spectacular, 100-mile-long Kangerlussuaq Fjord. Then venture into ice-thronged waters to confront the towering ice wall of Ilulissat Icefjord—a UNESCO World Heritage site—and navigate the Davis Strait to Baffin Island. Along the way, encounter a historic Viking village, an abandoned Moravian mission and the fascinating traditions of the Inuit communities who still live in these remote places. Ranging through the Hudson Strait, follow in the path of the Vikings further south to Newfoundland and Labrador, navigating magnificent icebergs. Hike the tundra while being on the lookout for caribou and arctic foxes; and seek out whales, walruses and polar bears along the rugged coastlines, by sea kayak and Zodiac.

Cruise from Greenland to Canada aboard the 148-guest National Geographic Explorer, a technologically advanced, fully stabilized expedition ship equipped with a well-rounded set of exploration tools including an ROV and enough kayaks and Zodiacs to send all guests out exploring at the same time.
