East Greenland’s wild ice edge and Iceland’s rugged beauty

Board the new National Geographic Endurance and discover a region of epic ice home to the Arctic’s iconic creatures: polar bears, whales, and vast seabird colonies. We will also be on the lookout for the northern lights along Eastern Greenland and Iceland at this time of year. Actively explore Iceland’s Westfjord region: hike through picturesque valleys as they transition into autumn; make your way over layers of basalt visibly cracked and carved in the last ice age and feel the spray of thundering waterfalls. Along Northeast Greenland, venture into the largest fjord system in the world to cruise among magnificent icebergs and visit the welcoming communities where people live close to their ancestral traditions. Follow in the wake of the 10th-century Viking explorers along the ice cap and learn of their bold, history-making expeditions.

  • Discover the wild west coast of Iceland with its incredible geology, quiet coves, and majestic waterfalls

  • Explore the largest national park in the world—Northeast Greenland National Park—and search for polar bears, musk oxen, whales, and more

  • Sail into Scoresbysund, ice permitting, the world’s largest and longest fjord system and home to a remote Inuit community
