Fabled Lands Of The North: Greenland to Newfoundland

On this north-to-south expedition aboard National Geographic Explorer, begin 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, we make our way, like the Vikings before us, 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.

  • 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

  • Join our naturalists to search for polar bears, caribou, arctic foxes, humpback and minke whales, walruses, and more in their natural habitat

  • Explore the untamed coasts of Newfoundland and Labrador, discovering spectacular fjords and cliffs on foot and by kayak and Zodiac
