Itinerary Overview

Leave the fast-paced, modern world behind


Embark the National Geographic Explorer for a thrilling exploration of the far north’s ice-carved landscapes, sailing from Greenland to Newfoundland and Labrador. Navigate massive icebergs at the mouth of the Ilulissat Icefjord, and venture into Davis Strait en route to Canada’s legendary Baffin Island. Along the way, encounter historic Viking villages, an abandoned Moravian mission, and the fascinating traditions of the Inuit communities who still live in these remote places. Hike the tundra 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.
