The fjord systems of Southern Greenland are blessed with some of the most dramatic views the country has to offer - white mountains and green valleys, towering icebergs and tiny flowers in bloom. Explore the depths of these fabulous fjords on a nine-day expedition that takes you off the vessel and into the incredible landscapes around you. Explore on foot, by Zodiac, by kayak and even by helicopter on this truly adventurous journey. While this Greenland expedition has no fixed itinerary, you can expect each day to bring something you've never seen or done before. This is expedition travel for the modern adventurer.
Day 1: Reykjavik – Embarkation Day
Welcome to Reykjavik, capital of Iceland. Your charter flight to Greenland with Air Iceland leaves from Reykjavik–Keflavik Airport this afternoon, so please be at the airport by 3 pm to allow time for check-in and boarding. Fly to Narsarsuaq (if the weather is clear the view from the plane is stunning) and board your vessel. Settle in to your cabin and get to know your crew and fellow travellers, embarking on your voyage in the evening.
Day 2-7: Days 2–7 Southern Greenland
Spend the next six days exploring Greenland’s southern reaches. Steep-edged fjords, icy waterfalls, snow-capped mountains, verdant valleys and iceberg-filled bays – this part of the country is home to its greatest landscapes. Your expert crew will navigate the dramatic fjords along the southern coast, cruising between mountains to reach remote destinations that you can explore in a variety of ways. In addition to excursions by Zodiac boat and stops that allow you to go ashore, this trip offers you the unique opportunity to go even deeper by helicopter. Conditions permitting, you may have opportunities for a heli-landing on the Greenland ice sheet and heli-hiking (flying to places we could not otherwise access for hikes suitable for all skill levels). It’s important to keep in mind that each day will be different and, while we have a general route mapped out, the itinerary is not set in stone (or permafrost!). That being said, we will aim to explore the depths of the fjord systems of Narsarsuaq, Tasermiut and Lindenow.
Day 8: Narsarsuaq – Disembarkation Day – Reykjavik
Disembark in Narsarsuaq and (if time allows) visit some of the villages and historical sites that surround the town. Board your charter flight to Reykjavik in the early evening. Arrive in Iceland’s capital and take a transfer to your included hotel for the night in Keflavik.
Day 9: Reykjavik
Your tour officially comes to an end today and there are no included activities.
- Explore by expedition vessel, by helicopter, by Zodiac and on foot for the most comprehensive view of this wild and remote land.
- Head into the deep fjord system of Southern Greenland and discover the country’s most dramatic landscapes, from snow-capped mountains to blooming fields.
- Hike the most remote areas of Southern Greenland – so isolated you can only reach them by helicopter – to find landscapes that boggle the mind.
- See the immense Greenland Ice Sheet from above during a heli-flight over the top, with glaciology experts on hand to explain the environment and its significance.
- Choose to customise your adventure with optional activities like an overnight camping experience in a fjord or kayaking over glacial lakes reached by helicopter.
