This extraordinary expedition cruise starts and finishes in Reykjavík, Iceland. Sailing across the Denmark Strait, we explore the stunning Scoresby Sundfjord complex in East Greenland and the Franz Josef Fjord and Kong Oscar Fjord systems which are part of Northeast Greenland National Park, the world’s largest and perhaps most remote. This whole area contains some of the Arctic’s most magnificent scenery.

Deep fjords and narrow channels, flanked by ice-clad peaks up to 2000 meters high, reach far into the mountainous heart of Greenland. Tidewater glaciers create colossal icebergs that float with wind and tide throughout the fjord system. On shore, fields of multicolored tundra are home to musk oxen and Arctic hare.

Explore this remote wilderness with us as we discover unbelievable scenery, historical sites, massive icebergs, a contemporary Inuit village, and of course the mesmerizing northern lights.
