The Danes fought back and eventually recaptured Sisimiut after several fierce battles in the 1730s. about the domination of the city. Heavy fighting between Dutch whalers and various European nations took place over the years. Because of itsthe flourishing shrimp industry, Sisimiut is one of theGreenland’s most prosperous richest cities today.in the country.
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 icebergs 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, picturesque 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. Visit the city sights on a walking tour that ends at the National Museum, which exhibits the famous mummies of Qilakitsoq.
Day 7 Ikka Fjord
The underwater world is like no other, it contains a forest of remarkable mineral columns growing on the seabed. The columns formed over 10,000 years ago of the extremely rare mineral Ikait.
Day 8 Day at Sea/Prins Christian Sound
When conditions are favorable, we travel along the Prince Christian Sound. In this narrow, often ice choked channel, we come so close to icebergs you can almost reach out and touch them.
Day 9 Skjoldungen Fjord
Skjoldungen Fjord is bordered by towering mountains tipped with snow and ice-scraped valley sides with serpentine rivers of ice plunging into the sea. It is highly likely that the fjord was inhabited by Paleo-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 10 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 gateway to explore East Greenland.
Day 11 Day at Sea/Denmark Strait
Today we sail across the Denmark Strait towards Iceland. This route was used by Norse settlers traveling to Greenland around 900 years ago.
Day 12 Reykjavík
