Ancient archaeological sites, massive fjords, Zodiac excursions and tundra hikes await you in Greenland. Sisimiut, our first planned stop, has the feel of a small fishing village with a great harbor for walking around and taking photos. You’ll get to watch a demonstration of traditional kayaking before venturing further north to Ilulissat.
A UNESCO World Heritage Site, Ilulissat is home to the Sermeq Kujalleq glacier one of the fastest and most active glaciers in the world. In additon to some spectacular Zodiac cruising, there is also a refreshing longer hike in Ilulissat.
Heading further north into the Upernavik Archipelago, you may spot whales and seals. The most northern discovery of any Viking artefacts in the world are at Upernavik; while nearby Kullorsuaq is a small settlement that sustains itself on fishing, whaling and sealing.
Your northern most stops in Greenland are Dundas and Qaanaaq, where glaciers and archaeological sites are found. In Qaanaaq you'll visit the local museum, a great way to gain a deeper appreciation for what it takes to live this far north.
