Greenland

The largest island in the world

Kalaallit Nunaat, 'the land of the people' has one of the largest ice caps in the world. While the interior is largely inhospitable, the waters around Greenland are rich in belugas, blue whales, bowhead whales, minke whales, narwhals and sperm whales. Many Arctic bird species and animals such as snow hares, polar bears and reindeer forage along the remote coasts. The Scoresby Sund , the largest fjord system in the world, is a maze of snowcapped rocks, ice floes and flats suitable for Zodiac landings and scenic nature walks. The town of Ittoqqortoormiit is the only permanent settlement in this remote area. Be sure to visit the Inuit, the original inhabitants of the Arctic. Their colorful coastal settlements are only accessible from the sea in summer.

Expedition Cruises to Greenland

The way to experience Greenland and its rich animal world is with an expedition cruise, often offered in combination with Spitsbergen, Iceland and even Jan Mayen . Sailing along the dramatic coastline of spectacular glaciers, magnificent fjords and icebergs, the most interesting places are within easy reach. With Zodiacs you will sail through deserted ice landscapes to discover the white world up close and visit a local settlement. Expedition cruises to Greenland run from May through September, the best time to spot whales, walruses and polar bears. Many birds already leave at the end of August.
