Cruise Description

13 Night Cruise sailing from Reykjavik to Kangerlussuaq aboard Ocean Adventurer. Hotel stays pre & post cruise in Reykjavik.

Greenland is Europe’s final frontier: its grandeur is unquestionable and yet unknown to most travelers. Sailing along Greenland’s coast is the best way to sample the rich history and diversity of this beautiful and dramatic country and to encounter an ancient culture surviving in a modern world.


Day 1 — Arrival in Reykjavik
Arrive in the Icelandic capital this morning and make your way to your included hotel. You will have the day to explore the city on your own. In the evening, join us at your hotel for a welcome briefing.

Day 2 — Embarkation Day in Akureyri
You’ll fly from Reykjavik to Akureyri to board your vessel and begin your expedition. Get ready for a great adventure ahead!

Days 3 and 4 — East Greenland
Experience a true arctic ghost town when we visit the abandoned settlement of Skjoldungen, where inhabitants were forced to move to larger, more accessible towns in 1961. The narrow part of Skjoldungen Fjord is an ideal place to explore by Zodiac.

Days 5 to 7 — South Greenland
Climbers and mountaineers around the world know Tasermiut Fjord, one of the world’s most prolific big-wall playgrounds. This part of Greenland is particularly dramatic, being nicknamed the Arctic Patagonia. A bit of a history lesson will be provided here as you learn about the settlements of the area, founded by Erik the Red.

Days 8 to 13 — Greenland’s West Coast
Heading north, you’ll stop at some of the quaint villages that dot the islands and fjords of Greenland’s western side. You’ll find friendly faces, local artisans and colorful houses on the wildflower-covered tundra.

Day 14 — Disembarkation in Kangerlussuaq
Today, you’ll board your direct charter flight back to Reykjavik, Iceland. Upon arrival in Reykjavik, we will transfer you to your hotel.

Day 15 — Depart Reykjavik
After breakfast, you can make your way home at your leisure or spend some more time in Reykjavik.
