Journey to the southern coastline of Greenland on a nine-day wilderness and wildlife adventure. Flying in and out of Reykjavik, board a state-of-the-art marine expedition vessel in search of snow-capped mountains, towering icebergs, fields of tundra and dramatic fjords. Your expert onboard crew will take you by Zodiac, kayak and helicopter to the most rugged of landscapes all in search of Greenland's most pure wilds. With a general course set but no rigid itinerary, each day is set to be full of the best in wildlife sightings, shore landings and exploration. This is Arctic expedition travel at its finest and most unforgettable.
Day 1: Reykjavik – Narsarsuaq – Embarkation Day
Welcome to Reykjavik – the capital of Iceland. This afternoon, you will be boarding a charter flight to Greenland with Air Iceland at Reykjavik–Keflavik Airport, so please arrive at the airport by 3 pm to allow time for check-in and security procedures. Your flight is bound for Narsarsuaq, and on a clear day, the views from the plane on descent are stunning. Once arrived, board your vessel, settle into your stateroom and meet your expedition crew before embarking this evening.
Day 2-7: Southern Greenland
The next six days are dedicated to exploring the remote reaches of Greenland’s southern shores. While there is a tentative route set, your expert crew will ensure the best itinerary is followed so that your expedition will maximise shore landings and wildlife spotting. During this time, cruise through rugged fjords, past glacial waterfalls and snow-capped peaks and to bays dotted with floating icebergs. You will explore the region by Zodiac boat, allowing you to hug the coastline and get as close as possible to ice shelves with walruses basking and polar bears roaming. Weather and ice conditions permitting, your expedition will take advantage of the ship’s fleet of twin-engine helicopters for sightseeing and shore landing experiences otherwise inaccessible. You will go deep in the icy wilderness and set out on hikes for all skill levels. Luckily for you, each day will be different; however, the expedition team will endeavour to explore the best of Narsarsuaq, Tasermiut and Lindenow.
Day 8: Narsarsuaq – Disembarkation Day – Reykjavik
Upon arrival, disembark from your ship and, if your group has time, explore the surrounding area and historical sites. Afterwards, return to the airport and board your included charter flight to Reykjavik–Keflavik Airport in the early evening. On arrival, take an included transfer to your accommodation in Keflavik.
Day 9: Reykjavik
With no activities included for today, your tour comes to an end and you are free to leave the accommodation.
- View the spectacular Greenland Ice Sheet from above during a helicopter experience, with glaciology experts on hand to help explain the environment and its significance.
