Explore Greenland

Experience this spectacular geography

 

As the world wakes to the wonders of Greenland, we find it changing faster than ever before. The ice retreats and bergs travel along new routes, revealing mysteries to explore. The people and wildlife, whose lives are so closely tied to the ice, are adapting as the delicate balance tilts. By virtue of our special relationships, forged in communities over decades, and thanks to our ice-class vessels, we are able to explore Greenland’s environs, history, and culture as no one else can. Join us here for a privileged perspective on one of the world’s bellwether geographies.

Meet the North: Building Relationships Through Storytelling

 

 

National Geographic Explorer and Lindblad Expeditions Field Correspondent Jennifer Kingsley is a naturalist and journalist who has traveled for hundreds of days through some of the planet’s last great wildernesses. In 2015, she founded Meet the North to share stories from some of the four million people who live at the top of the world—from Svalbard and Greenland to the Canadian Arctic, Arctic Alaska, and the Russian Far East.

 

By meeting one person at a time, and listening to their stories, the project takes you beyond the news headlines to discover a deeper, more diverse picture of modern Arctic culture. And, by listening to stories in Greenlandic communities, like Pond Inlet and Ilulissat, and showing these northerners that the wider world is deeply interested in learning about their changing ways of life, the project has also opened doors to mutually rewarding cultural experiences for our guests. While exploring Greenland or the Canadian High Arctic with us, look forward to gaining a level of insight you wouldn’t otherwise have. Read Jenny’s stories in anticipation of your trip for a rewarding sense of the possibilities ahead.
