Day 1 Reykjavik
Day 2 Snaefellsnes Peninsula
The area is often referred to as “Iceland in miniature”, through its diversity of landscapes. Breidafjordur Bay, for instance, is known for its fascinating bird life, unique basalt formations and breathtaking panorama.
Day 3 Isafjordur
Today‘s destination is Isafjordur, an idyllic town in the Westfjords region. This secluded peninsula is connected to the Icelandic mainland by only a narrow strip of land and includes many roadless areas where cars have never been. The landscape includes jaw-dropping views of dramatic fjords carved by ancient glaciers, sheer table mountains that plunge into the sea and pristine North Atlantic vegetation.
Day 4 Siglufjordur/Flatey/Husavik
By morning we reach the fjord town of Siglufjordur, once the hub of the global herring industry and now enjoying a rebirth in popularity. Learn about the golden age of herring at the award-winning Herring Era Museum located on the vibrant harbor-front. In the early afternoon, we head to Flatey. It’s a natural haven for birdlife and home to the arctic tern and puffins, which can be observed at close quarters. During dinner we steam further into the Skjalfandi Bay and visit Husavik.
Day 5 Husavik
Husavik is often called the “Whale watching capital” of Iceland. The town’s offshore waters are home to 15 different whale species, as well as dolphins and 30 variety of birds. Watching these graceful ocean giants in their Arctic habitat is an unforgettable experience.
Day 6 Seydisfjordur
Iceland’s East Fjords are best explored from the impossibly picturesque port of Seydisfjordur, nestled between the sea and steep mountains. Activities include hiking, horseback riding and exploring the natural beauties of the East.
Day 7 Djupivogur
The fishing village of Djupivogur is today’s starting point to explore the Berufjordur fjord by kayak ( optional). Go on a four wheel-drive Jeep tour ( optional) or take a boat trip in the Jokulsarlon Glacier Lagoon (optional). Icebergs of all shapes and sizes are floating in the water - an unforgettable adventure.
Day 8 Vestmannaeyjar (Westman Islands)
Located off Iceland’s South Coast, the Westman Islands were formed by submarine volcanic eruptions around 10,000 years ago. We go ashore on Heimaey, the only inhabited island, where half-buried houses remain from a violent 1973 eruption.
Day 9 Reykjavik
Explore inland areas like the Golden Circle and its famous Gullfoss waterfall or other programs. Or simply hang out in Reykjavik, a perfect city for those who want to refresh their spirit in a place that combines invigorating outdoor activities, great food and world-class entertainment.
Day 10 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 Team members 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 11 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 12 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 13 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 14 Qeqertarsuatsiaat
Qeqertarsuatsiaat is a small settlement with approx. 200 residents, mainly living from hunting and fishing. Visit the small mine and learn more about the extraction of precious stones.
Day 15 Nuuk
With 16,000 inhabitants Nuuk is both the capital and the biggest city of Greenland. It combines Arctic 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 16 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 17 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 18 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. Hunting and fishing are still the primary occupations for the island’s inhabitants.
Day 19 Kangerlussuaq
