Go beyond ordinary expeditions to the world’s largest island with our extensive experience, bringing you deeper insight into local communities and their resilience to live in such remote places as Sisimiut, Kangaamiut, Uummannaq and Ittoqqortoormiit – Greenland’s most isolated town.
Our intimate yet spacious ships access even the smallest locations in this unspoilt paradise, such as the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Ilulissat where you can walk on one of the world’s largest ice fjords.
Watch for polar bears, Arctic foxes, rare birds, shaggy muskoxen and wild reindeer roaming across the tundra.

EXPLORE THE HIDDEN SECRETS OF GREENLAND
Skimming across the icy sea by Zodiac®, you’ll venture deeper into the great island’s coastline to explore the beauty of almost inaccessible scenery and see the incredible marine wildlife. We also use local boats to take intrepid travellers farther into the ice fjords to witness some of the most spectacular icebergs in the world. On foot, you’ll get up close and personal with the local flora and fauna. And onboard, the exploration continues in even greater comfort with fascinating conversation with our expedition experts in panoramic viewing positions – perfect for admiring the wilderness.
SEE EPIC SCENERY AND RARE WILDLIFE
Home to the largest ice sheet outside of Antarctica, Greenland offers some of the world’s most beautiful ice fjords and icebergs, and includes the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Ilulissat which has almost as many sled-dogs as people. In Northern and Eastern Greenland, polar bears, Arctic foxes, musk oxen, walruses, rare various species of birds and wild reindeer roaming across the tundra will delight nature lovers. Western Greenland offers even more opportunities to explore the island’s stunning coastal scenery. And we sail at the perfect time of year to hopefully see Humpback and Fin whales.
CONNECT MORE CLOSELY WITH LOCAL CULTURE
Despite covering an area of 836,330 square miles, Greenland is only inhabited by around 56,000 people. We visit tiny villages with expansive histories, accompanied by expert anthropologists who share their knowledge, passion and insights into the local way of life. You will learn about the deep history and archaeological remains of these remote lands and get to know local communities on a deeper, more authentic level. See how the people here still embrace and preserve ancient traditions, such as kayaking which remains central to the Inuit culture – and is still used to this day for hunting.
