30 Greenland Impressions Photo: PeterNeumann DAY 1 | KANGERLUSSUAQ Charter flight from Keflavik to Kangerlussuaq. The SEAVENTURE anchors off Kangerlussuaq and embarkation is conducted via our Zodiac boats (don’t forget your rain clothes). The ship departs in the evening. DAY 2 | 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 3 | ILULISSAT Our next stop is Ilulissat, which means “iceberg” in Greenlandic. And with good reason, as the town is located at the mouth of the iceberg-filled Ilulissat Ice Fjord. Delight in the thunderous spectacle when ice- bergs break off from Sermeq Kujalleq glacier and plunge into the fjord. DAY 4 | 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, pictur- esque village lies at the foot of a heart shaped mountain. DAY 5 | DISKO BAY / QEQERTARSUAQ The small settlement of Qeqertarsuaq is located on the South Coast of Disko Island. In 1773, the first whaling base was founded there. Whaling has been of great importance to the town over the past two centuries. DAY 6 | NUUK Nuuk is the capital of Greenland and its oldest town. Founded in 1728 by Danish-Norwegian missionary Hans Egede, the city combines Arctic traditions and European urbanity. With around 16,000 inhabitants, Nuuk is considered a modern, bustling metropolis compared to the rest of Greenland. Disko Bay Adventure & East Greenland From majestic glaciers and icebergs floating in deep-blue water to the island’s unique indigenous wildlife, the natural wonders of Greenland are the stars of this soft adventure voyage. Whales and seals often accompany the SEAVENTURE, while musk ox graze ashore. NATURAL WONDERS OF GREENLAND TOUR II Uummannaq, northernmost stop of the cruise Photo:HermannHelguson
