The fjord-lined coast of Greenland...
Greenland, a vast unspoiled wilderness where glaciers calve into bays strewn with icebergs, whale pods glide through the arctic waters and unique flora springs to life in the short summer months. Brightly coloured houses of tiny communities dot the shore and mountains.
Our unique shore walks and excursions include:
Qaqortoq - A town typical of southern Greenland, where many-coloured houses rise up through rough grass to craggy hillsides. Here we explore the flowery gardens on our way to the Tasersuaq lake behind the town.
Narsarsuaq - We hike through the Flower Valley to a viewpoint for breath taking views over the Kiagtut Sermiat glacier, part of the vast Greenland icecap.
Nanortalik - Our walk is along the coast out of the town to enjoy the amazing fjord with alpine-like mountains.
Prins Christiansund - Not a stop, but all the same an amazing experience as we cruise from the east to the west coast of Greenland, between mountains and waterfalls with icebergs dotting the water, with a chance of spotting several varieties of whale.
Reykjavik - From Iceland’s capital we go on our special version of the classic Golden Circle tour. Visit the thundering waterfall at Gulfoss, see the steaming water spout at Geysir and walk in the Thingvellir National Park where the American and European continents meet. On our second night here we include a hike through Steam Valley near Hveragerdi.
Kirkwall - A long way from Iceland, but our cruise calls in to the capital of Orkney Islands on our return journey, giving us the chance to walk along the coast to Scara Brae.
