Itinerary Overview

Leave the fast-paced, modern world behind

Venture to the fjord-laced coast of western Greenland, where hardy Inuit communities perched at the edge of the Greenland ice cap carry on their timeless way of life. Explore archaeological sites and vibrant modern-day villages, glide into breathtaking fjords by Zodiac or kayak, watch for the Northern Lights as we explore the ins and outs of this rugged coastline. Take an unforgettable cruise amid the massive icebergs of the Illulissat Icefjord and meet local people who live off the land and sea as their ancestors before them did for millennia.
