Kangerlussuaq is a settlement in western Greenland in the Qeqqata municipality located at the head of the fjord of the same name (Danish: Søndre Strømfjord). It is Greenland's main air transport hub and the site of Greenland's largest commercial airport. The airport dates from American settlement during and after World War II, when the site was known as Bluie West-8 and Sondrestrom Air Base. The Kangerlussuaq area is also home to Greenland's most diverse terrestrial fauna, including muskoxen, caribou, and gyrfalcons.
Located just north of the Arctic Circle, Sisimiut is the northernmost town in Greenland where the port remains free of ice in the winter. Yet it is also the southernmost town where there is enough snow and ice to drive a dogsled in winter and spring. In Sisimiut, travelling by sled has been the primary means of winter transportation for centuries. In fact, the area has been inhabited for approximately 4,500 years. Modern Sisimiut is the largest business center in the north of Greenland, and is one of the fastest growing Greenlandic cities.
In the iceberg-laden waters surrounding the remote community of Uummannaq it is common to see whales. This area of Greenland is also known for its huge basalt mountains, and the small hunting and fishing village of Uummannaq rests at the foot of the heart-shaped Uummannaq Mountain, a name that translates to mean “in the shape of a seal’s heart”. The town of over 1200 people has a granite church and the country’s most northerly ferry terminal. The economy of Uummannaq revolves largely around the halibut/fish-processing factory.
Days at sea are the perfect opportunity to relax, unwind and catch up with what you’ve been meaning to do. So whether that is whale watching from the Observatory Lounge, writing home to your loved ones or simply topping up your tan by the pool, these blue sea days are the perfect balance to busy days spent exploring shore side.
Located in northern Baffin Island, Pond Inlet is a small, predo¬minantly Inuit community, with a population of roughly 1,500 inhabitants. In 1818, the British explorer John Ross named a bay in the vicinity after the English astronomer John Pond. Today Pond Inlet is considered one of Canada's "jewels of the North" thanks to several picturesque glaciers and mountain ranges nearby. Many archaeological sites of ancient Dorset and Thule peoples can be found near Pond Inlet.
The starkly beautiful Sam Ford Fjord area of Baffin Island has one of the most impressive concentrations of vertical rock walls to be found anywhere in the world. It is a 110-kilometer (68-mile) waterway lined with sheer cliffs that have attracted some of the world’s best (and most extreme) rock climbers to the region. The steep stone walls were formed by ancient glaciers that carved the landscape through the ages. However, the feature that makes the shoreline truly special is the way that many of these walls rise straight up from the dark waters of the deep fjord.
There are few places on earth where the simple grandeur of the landscape can dwarf a ship with giant peaks, steep cliffs, and glacial rivers of ice. In Gibbs Fjord it is possible to see only towering cliffs and the seemingly impenetrable fortress of 4,000-foot walls and buttresses that make up Sillem Island, eventually dividing the dark, deep waters of Gibbs and Clark Fjords. The geological formations here make for excellent photo opportunities and it is astounding to realize that very little of this spectacular terrain has ever been explored.
Bylot Island, off the northern end of Baffin Island has an area of 4,273 square miles, making it one of the largest uninhabited islands in the world. Cape Burney lies on the east coast of Bylot Island, and is used regularly by local Inuit during their hunting and fishing seasons. The island is named for the Arctic explorer Robert Bylot who was the first European to sight the island’s steep mountains, ice fields, sheer cliffs, snowfields and glaciers in 1616. A total of 74 species of Arctic birds thrive on this island.
Devon Island, located in Baffin Bay, is only slightly smaller than Croatia. The eastern side is frosted by the Devon Ice Cap, while on the western half of the island lays the 14 mile wide Haughton impact crater. It was created around 39 million years ago when a meteorite crashed into the land. The landscape surrounding this site resembles the surface of Mars. In fact, for the past decade scientists have conducted research here to determine how humans might live one day on Mars. British Arctic explorers Robert Bylot and William Baffin were the first Europeans to sight the island in 1616.
The beautiful uninhabited Coburg Island has a diverse landscape including cliffs, rocky shores, and lush tundra while bowhead whales, narwhals and beluga are known to frequent the surrounding waters. It is one of the Queen Elizabeth Islands and due to its unique ecology and wildlife, this island has been designated an International Biological Program site and a Key Migratory Bird Terrestrial Habitat site. Tens of thousands of seabirds, including Black-legged Kittiwakes, Thick-billed Murres, Glaucous Gulls and Northern Fulmars all nestle together on the rocky cliffs.
Markison Fjord was cut into Ellesmere Island by glaciers during the last Ice Age. Today, the combination of calm blue-green waters, icebergs, snow-covered mountains, and glaciers makes for a stunning scenic cruise. Polar bears and beluga are frequently seen in this area.
Alexandra Fjord is a naturally formed inlet on the Johan Peninsula of Ellesmere Island. Although no permanent residents live here, it has been used periodically for a variety of purposes over the years. The Royal Canadian Mounted Police had a station here for ten years, from 1953 to 1963, during the beginning of the Cold War. At the time, it was the northern-most police station in the world. Later, between 1987 and 1992, this location was used as a seasonal research base.
Pim Island is a small island off the eastern coast of Ellesmere Island in the Smith Sound. It was named to honor the naval officer and barrister Bedford Clapperton Pim of the HMS Resolute, for his role in the rescue of the crew of the HMS Investigator. Pim Island is most noted as the site where members of the Greely Expedition of 1881-1884 were forced to take refuge for nine months before they were rescued. By then, 18 of the 25 expedition members had perished. The ruins of their escapade are still visible today.
In AD 850, the Vikings established their parliament in Tórshavn, a name which translates as "Thor's harbor." It was named after Thor, the god of thunder and lightning in Norse mythology. The town became a center of trade for the island, and in fact was designated as the only legal place for the islanders to sell and buy products. This trade monopoly was abolished in 1856. Today it is the capital and largest city of the Faroe Islands, with fish-processing plants, a shipyard, and woolen products making up. It is considered to be one of the oldest capitals in Northern Europe.
Bowdoin Fjord, just over 12 miles from Qaanaaq village, is in the central west section of Greenland. The rocks that make up the scenery inside the fjord are old marine seabed deposits that are more than 1,000 million years old, and with all the weathering, they have become a ‘painted landscape’ of ochres, olives, russets and mauves. At the far end of the fjord is the calving front of the Bowdoin Glacier, which produces many large beautiful icebergs. This area was first explored by American explorer Robert Peary in the early 1900’s.
Visit the arctic seascape of Cape York, Greenland. Located on the northwestern coast of Greenland in Baffin Bay, Cape York is an important geographical feature delimiting the Melville Bay at its northwestern end and Kiatassuaq Island at its other end. There is a chain of coastal islands that stretches between the two capes, most notably Meteorite Island, named for the discovery one of the world’s largest iron meteorites in Savissivik, a settlement on the island. The iron from this meteorite attracted Inuit migrating from Arctic Canada who used the metal in making tools and harpoons.
Days at sea are the perfect opportunity to relax, unwind and catch up with what you’ve been meaning to do. So whether that is whale watching from the Observatory Lounge, writing home to your loved ones or simply topping up your tan by the pool, these blue sea days are the perfect balance to busy days spent exploring shore side.
Known as the birthplace of icebergs, the Ilulissat Icefjord produces nearly 20 million tons of ice each day. In fact, the word Ilulissat means “icebergs” in the Kalaallisut language. The town of Ilulissat is known for its long periods of calm and settled weather, but the climate tends to be cold due to its proximity to the fjord. Approximately 4,500 people live in Ilulissat, the third-largest town in Greenland after Nuuk and Sisimiut.
Only 350 people live in the small Greenlandic community of Kangaamiut. Located on the south coast of Timerdlit Island and facing the Davis Strait, Kangaamiut is situated between the mouths of two long fjords: the Kangerlussuatsiaq Fjord (or Evighedsfjorden in Danish) to its south and to its north Kangaamiut Kangerluarsuat Fjord. Founded in 1755, it was called “Sugarloaf” (Sukkertoppen) because of the appearance of three nearby hills.
Kangerlussuaq is a settlement in western Greenland in the Qeqqata municipality located at the head of the fjord of the same name (Danish: Søndre Strømfjord). It is Greenland's main air transport hub and the site of Greenland's largest commercial airport. The airport dates from American settlement during and after World War II, when the site was known as Bluie West-8 and Sondrestrom Air Base. The Kangerlussuaq area is also home to Greenland's most diverse terrestrial fauna, including muskoxen, caribou, and gyrfalcons.

melhores momentos da viagem

Take a circuit beginning and ending in Greenland, traveling to Canada and back through the open sea, visiting some of the most spectacular natural wonders of the world in the legendary high Arctic. We will cruise through awe-inspiring fjords in both countries, including the 25-mile Ilulissat Icefjord (UNESCO World Heritage Site). We will visit Sirmilik National Park and the Nijurtiqavvik National Wildlife Area, where wildlife lovers will be delighted to (most likely) see polar bears, whales (beluga, minke, bowhead, and narwhal), as well as several species of seals and birds. We will visit small Inuit villages in both Greenland and Canada: take in Inuit culture at the museum in Sisimiut, which tells the story of life in the high Arctic over 4,000 years ago. Immerse yourself in Inuit art at Pond Inlet, Nunavut, where more artists per capita live than any other place in the world. We will cruise the spectacular fjords aboard the Silver Cloud and also take Zodiac cruises to get a closer look. Most sites will be visited on foot, whenever landings are possible. Throughout the voyage, learn about the history, geology, wildlife and botany of these starkly beautiful locations from lecture presentations offered by your knowledgeable onboard Expedition Team.

Voyage Highlights:

Sisimiut, Greenland –
Originally settled by Inuit people 4,500 years ago, Sisimiut is translated as “the people at fox burrows.” Visit the Sisimiut Museum that is made up of original and recreated 18th century wooden buildings. Many sled dogs and their keepers are here at this time of year, waiting for the winter to come.

Uummannaq, Greenland –
This is one of Greenland’s most colorful towns beneath a heart-shaped mountain. The fjord that surrounds Uummannaq is popular for whale watching, with possible sightings including humpback and Minke whales.

Pond Inlet, Nunavut, Canada –
Enjoy a wander through a small, predominantly Inuit community and one of the major centers of Inuit art, with the world’s greatest proportion of artists per capita. The Inuits refer to the community as Mittimatilik, which translates as “where the landing place is.”

Coburg Island, Canada –
Stand in the Nijurtiqavvik National Wildlife Area, in Qikiqtaaluk, Nunavut, Canada, with its diverse Arctic wildlife, including chances to spot large seabird colonies and many ringed seals, bearded seals, polar bears, walruses, narwhals and beluga whales.

Sirmilik National Park, Canada –
A protected area within the Arctic Cordillera in Canada, much of this park is bordered by water and lined with snow-capped mountains. Look for polar bears, beluga and bowhead whales, narwhals as well as harp and ring seals.

Cultural Highlight:

• Learn about the history of Greenlandic and Canadian Inuit communities and experience how modern descendants live in small villages in these modern times. • Spend time in remote Nunavut, which claims to have more artists per capita than any other part in the world.

Wildlife Watch List:

• Glaucous Gull, Iceland Gull, Common Gull, Great Black-backed Gull, Arctic Tern, Black-legged Kittiwakes, Northern Fulmars, Black Guillemots, Atlantic Puffins, Ravens, Common Redpoll, Snow Bunting, Lapland Bunting
• Ringed, bearded and harp seals, walrus
• Polar bears can be seen in the region
• Minke, bowhead, beluga and humpback whales, narwhals
