Trace the rugged coast of the world’s largest island
More than a thousand years ago, the legendary Viking Erik the Red set sail from Iceland to Greenland, exiled to a stark and spectacular land of endless ice, rocky pinnacles, and steep-sided fjords. On a voyage aboard National Geographic Explorer, follow his route from Iceland’s magnificent Westfjords peninsula across the Denmark Strait to the ice-sculpted shores of Greenland. Trace the coast of the world’s largest island from the rugged eastern fjords to the fishing villages of the western coast. Search for walruses, whales, and caribou; and use our ship’s exploration tools to discover the undersea. Visit archaeological sites of Viking and Thule settlements and learn about everyday life near the Arctic Circle in charming coastal villages from Flatey Island to Nuuk.
