ITINERARY INSPIRATION

GREENLAND EXPLORER

Greenland is extraordinary. Vast expanses of pure white snow contrasting with the blue heavens.
GREENLAND, ARCTIC

ABOUT THE ITINERARY

The night sky illuminated by the Northern Lights. Icebergs taller than apartment blocks. Astoundingly photogenic fjords. Great glaciers surrounded by snow-cloaked mountains. Wildlife like Arctic hares, reindeer and musk ox. Purple and gold rocks and a multi-coloured Painted Valley.

You’ll see it all, from the observation deck of your purpose-designed, ice-strengthened cruiser. You’ll explore by Zodiac boat, go snow-shoeing and hiking and dine on gourmet food. On selected voyages you can try kayaking and even Arctic camping.

We can also arrange any pre or post cruise accommodation as well as international flights upon request.

Reykjavik | Ultimate Travel Company
Day 1

GREENLAND

Land in the world’s most northerly capital city – Reykjavik with its surprising range of interesting sights, museums, appealing modern architecture and human scale.

Stay: One night in a luxurious Reykjavik hotel.

Ocean Nova | Ultimate Travel Company
Day 2

CONSTABLE POINT

From Reykjavik a short internal flight pops you over to Constable Point where you’ll board the Ocean Nova ready to begin your expedition into a world of stunning fjords, glaciers, remote islands and arctic wildlife.

Arctic Fox | Ultimate Travel Company
Day 3

APELFJORD

Today you sail into a dazzling world of monumental icebergs drifting like silent white ghosts, glittering blue sounds and towering fjords. Your Zodiac boat will zip you along fjords and inlets, coming close to the shoreline so you have the chance to see and photograph Arctic foxes and musk ox roaming freely across the frozen habitat.

Glaciers | Ultimate Travel Company
Day 4

BROGETDAL AND WALTERSHAUSEN GLACIER

Brogetdal was justly nicknamed the Multi-coloured or Painted Valley; its fascinating geology and colourful panoramic views will definitely have you stretching your camera’s memory. Even the surrounding mountains are a symphony of different colours and tones, set off against their mantles of white. Then comes a rare visit to the impressive Waltershausen Glacier, a vast expanse of gleaming ice floe at the mouth of Nordfjord and scene of a failed attempt by the German explorer Waltershausen to reach the North Pole via East Greenland.

Blomsterbugten | Ultimate Travel Company
Day 5

BLOMSTERBUGTEN AND RENBUGTEN

Another colourful surprise awaits you at the Bay of Flowers – purple and gold rocks that invite you on a hike to examine them more closely. Renbugten, or Reindeer Bay as it is known, has a different attraction. Here the wildlife observation includes reindeer sightings, not surprisingly, and the chance to see Arctic hares.

Giant Icebergs | Ultimate Travel Company
Day 6

ELLA OYA

Landing on Ella Island is your opportunity for a great hike to the summit of the island’s mountain which will give you fantastic views – and an unrivalled perspective for photography – of the island’s ice-packed waters, rugged cliffs and giant icebergs reflecting the gleaming blue of the sky.

Ittoqqortoormiit | Ultimate Travel Company
Day 7

ITTOQQORTOORMIIT AND HALL BREDNING

Time to meet the locals. Ittoqqortoormiit is home to the most northerly settlement in East Greenland and the Inuit people will welcome you to their community by showing you their handicrafts, and how their traditions merge with their modern way of life. Sailing on to Hall Bredning – part of Scoresbysund – you’ll also see icebergs larger than football pitches and taller than apartment blocks. And, of course, the phenomenal Northern Lights.

Scoresbysund | Ultimate Travel Company
Day 8

FREDERIKSDAL AND SYDKAPP

Just when you thought the frozen Arctic landscapes could not become any more majestic, their chilled beauty reaches another level. Sail deeper into the Scoresbysund where enormous icebergs look over ancient Thule settlements. Towering mountains, ice cliffs and gigantic bergs conspire together to create a wonderland that plays tricks with your perceptions of scale and distance.
