Iceland ProCruises Catalogue 2021 - 2022

28 DAY 1 | REYKJAVIK Use your leisure time in Reykjavik to discover the unique charm of the world’s northernmost capital. The SEAVENTURE departs in the evening. DAY 2 | DAY AT SEA / DENMARK STRAIT Today we sail across the Denmark Strait towards Greenland, following the same maritime route used by Norse settlers more than 900 years ago. Enroute you can attend fascinating presentations by our Expedition Teammembers to prepare for your visit to Greenland. Or of course, you can choose to just relax and watch whales, dolphins and seabirds from the deck or from your cabin. DAY 3 | AMMASSALIK ISLAND The island is characterized by several glaciers, jagged peaks, rivers, lakes and waterfalls. There are vast green valleys and deep fjords with newly calved icebergs dropping off the ice cap into the sea. Tasiilaq, the largest town in East Greenland, is located on Ammassalik Island. With its population of approximately 2,000 people, the town is the gate- way to explore East Greenland. DAY 4 | SKJOLDUNGEN FJORD Skjoldungen Fjord is bordered by towering moun- tains tipped with snow and ice-scraped valley sides with serpentine rivers of ice plunging into the sea. It’s highly likely that the fjord was inhabited by Pa- leo-Eskimo (Inuit) nomadic people as early as 4,000 years ago. Surrounded by wild and pristine nature, it is quite common to see whales, bearded seals and various kinds of birds in the area. DAY 5 | DAY AT SEA / PRINCE CHRISTIAN SOUND When conditions are favorable, we travel along the 70 mile (112 km) long Prince Christian Sound which connects the Labrador and Irminger Seas. In this narrow, often ice choked channel, we come so close to icebergs you can almost reach out and touch one. The force of Greenland’s massive inland ice cap pushes glaciers towards the sea, where large chunks of ice break off and become floating icebergs. DAY 6 | QAQORTOQ With 3,000 inhabitants, Qaqortoq is the largest settlement in South Greenland. In this charming town you can find lots of strikingly beautiful colonial buildings, dating from the establishment of the town in 1775. The area has a rich history, as it has been inhabited continuously since prehistoric times. You can still see traces of Thule and Norse cultures throughout the region. DAY 7 | NUUK With 16,000 inhabitants Nuuk is both the capital and the biggest city of Greenland. It combines Arc- tic traditions with European urbanity. Visit the city sights on a walking tour that ends at the National Museum which exhibits the famous mummies of Qilakitsoq. DAY 8 | SISIMIUT With approx. 5,600 inhabitants, Sisimiut is the second largest town in Greenland. It is a modern settlement that maintains ancient traditions. The fishing industry still plays an important role. DAY 9 | ILULISSAT In the morning we reach Ilulissat village in fabled Disko Bay. Ilulissat is located beside the Ilulissat Icefjord. Delight in the thunderous spectacle when icebergs break off from the glacier and plunge into the fjord. DAY 10 | UUMMANNAQ Uummannaq is considered one of the most beautiful towns in Greenland. Located on a small island about 300 miles (483 km) north of the Arctic Circle, this tiny, picturesque village lies at the foot of a heart shaped mountain. East Greenland & Disko Bay Adventure Discover the immense scenic and cultural variety of the world’s largest island, from the impressive mountain range in the east to the beautiful and fertile south with its fascinating Viking history, to the town of Ilulissat with its floating icebergs.
