Iceland and the Natural Wonders of Greenland Cruise

12 Days
Prices From:
US$ 6,495

FIRST-CLASS | CRUISE: Cruise along the North Atlantic, exploring the Arctic landscapes of western Iceland and Greenland to discover Viking history and floating icebergs. From the cosmopolitan capital of Reykjavik, board the Seaventure to cross the Denmark Strait to Greenland where you’ll follow in the footsteps of Erik the Red and survey the glaciers, fjords, and Inuit settlements that define this ancient island.

This 12-day tour takes you across the North Atlantic, from the Nordic landscape of Iceland to the glacial reaches of Greenland.

Your Icelandic tour begins in the capital of Reykjavik, a small city that boasts big culture. Take in the National Museum to learn about the nation’s founding or relax in the smoky hot springs that surround the town or sample its vibrant nightlife before taking to the sea aboard the MS Seaventure. The MS Seaventure is a modern super-yacht capable of carrying 149 passengers in maximum comfort across the ice-clogged seas of the North Atlantic. Relax in the charming common spaces, from the bar to the spacious restaurants, or spend your time in the library or at a massage as you head towards Greenland.

Pass through the imposing Vestmannaeyjar or Westman Islands, jagged black rocks jutting out of the ocean. Land on inhabited Heimaey to spot the volcanoes, Eldfell and Helgafell, and witness half-buried houses from an eruption in the seventies. Cross the Denmark Strait that connects Iceland to Greenland, charting the course laid out by Vikings over 900 years ago. If you chance upon mild weather, pass through the Prins Christian Sound to cruise through a sea of icebergs. Reach land at the town of Narsarsuaq, very close to the settlement of Qassiarsuk, founded by Erik the Red. The green and verdant landscape around here inspired the name “Greenland,” even though the island as a whole is mostly snow-covered and desolate. Head up to the capital city of Nuuk to discover a cosmopolitan town set amongst a backdrop of snow-capped mountains and icy fjords. Visit the National Museum then pass onto Sisimut, where the island’s fishing industry thrives.

In Ilulissat, the nations’ most popular tourist destination, you’ll see the historical home of polar explorer, Knud Rasmussen, as well as the lovely rainbow houses that dot the hillside. From this Inuit settlement pass 80 kilometres north to the Egip Sermia or Egip Glacier, a stunning glacier with a 90-metre-high bank rising straight out of the ocean. Watch ice calve from the wall and fall into the sea before moving onto Uummannaq, a gorgeous town 483 kilometres north of the Arctic Circle. Pass by Qeqertarsuaq in Disko Bay where the whaling industry was born in 1773 before passing the Kangerlussuaq Fjord on your farewell cruise along Greenland’s coast.

    The Seaventure was specifically designed for extraordinary moments. The small ship is incredibly agile and manoeuvrable making a change of course effortless for a rare wildlife sighting. In addition, the Seaventure has been assigned the highest ice class for passenger ships. A greater density of steel plates in the hull and a massive stem are just two of the elements that allow the expedition ship to glide safely through the waters.

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 gateway to explore East Greenland.

Day 4

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´s 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 5

Day at Sea & Prins Christian Sound

When conditions are favorable, we travel along the 112 km (70 mile) long Prins 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.

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.

Day 8


Sisimiut has a turbulent history, especially during the 18th century when the first Danish colony was destroyed by Dutch whalers who wanted to establish their own settlement. The Danes fought back and eventually recaptured Sisimiut after several fierce battles in the 1730s. Heavy fighting between Dutch whalers and various European nations took place over the years. Because of its flourishing shrimp industry, Sisimiut is one of the Greenland’s most prosperous and richest cities today.
